Midwives don’t want anything more from the Legislature. They just want to be left alone.
Today midwives from around the state showed up to the state capital to thank legislators with homemade cookies for the recent change in law that legalizes midwifery.
“We’re not asking for more,” Missouri Midwives Association former president Debbie Smithey said.
She said the next step for them is to “see what it’s like to practice legally.”
