antitrust suits and midwifery care


Spat with hospital heads to court
Disagreement about pregnant patients' use of midwives spurs federal antitrust lawsuit against Salem Hospital

Part of the problem is the perception that midwives must be 'closely supervised' by surgeons. I prefer to think that there needs to be a collegial relationship, where the midwife calls in the surgeon as a consultant when a pregnancy or labor needs a second opinion, or where surgery is clearly indicated.
