Midwives Reinstated !!

Hi All, Well, a big thank you to Terry Cole, MD, a long time supporter of midwifery, who stepped up and agreed to be our backup. This should satisfy the ever changing rules of the MEC for now. I had to switch days to cover my Century City office from Mondays to Tuesdays because we could not find any physician willing to back me backing the midwives on Mondays. I spoke to 5 of the members of the OB committee and a total of 8 members of the attending staff and all refused. The reasons went from reasonable to absurd but not surprising. At least now our patients can get the care they desire while we continue to work for their rights to choose the manner by which they give birth.
