there is a lay midwife available in Carlsbad for home delivery... much less expensive, and works just as well

Yes, it does matter and no, home birth is not just as good. There are increased deaths related to home birthing due to no medical equipment to save the baby or the mom. I would NEVER recommend home birthing to anybody.

if you don't recomend home delivery the go recruit a obgyn doctor and learn to keep them happy

it appears the current admr can not do that because he is more concerned with his high profit margin

A midwife is perfectly fine as long as she has the proper training and RN. A midwife will also evaluate if home birthing is wise in special situations.
RN? You mean Registered Nurse? A person has to have their Masters degree. Here is some information.

I will NEVER recommend home birthing.

Home birthing is good. And safe. That's why they call 'home' - home. The hands which first grasp an infant should not be those of a hot-headed malcontent with flexible morals - like self-aggrandizing know-it-all nurses on Topix.

Lol, well duh, a nurse with a masters degree has to be an RN first.

No, there are not a lot of nurses who have masters in nursing. In 2008 13.2 percent of RNs held a masters or doctorate of nursing.

A person has to have their Masters degree. There was nothing wrong with my sentence. A person, meaning a nurse, has to have their Master's degree to become a midwife.

What power do I have? You are weird. You can mash a steel pillow over your own face and crawl away, if you are not dead.

A nurse cannot cut open the mother if the child needs to get out stat. There is no equipment to help the child breath if needed. Now, if they want to do "home" birthing at a birthing place in the hospital would be ok, but not actually at home.

most midwives are masters prepared advanced practice RN's and usually deliver babies in a hospital setting in the same manner as a OB doctor

also, there are 'lay' midwives that deliver at home

mother's choice!!!!!!

this original post indicates a lack of availibility of OB doctors in Carlsbad so a pregnant mother must go elsewhere to have a baby in a hospital
roswell or hobbs are the nearest and both are 70+ miles away

the alternative to a 70 mile drive is home delivery or delivery by a cop or paramedic

You don't seem to know much about midwives or home birthing. Midwives are very capable! You're not a nurse or you would know these things!
midwives cant cut open an abdomen and there is no equipment to save a baby like a vent. lol about me not being a nurse.

The nurse midwife, Lisa Hobbs, is still in practice through Women's Health Services in Artesia. You can still make appointments with her. Also, dr. Garcia is a very good provider, but there are 2 other doctors who deliver babies and yet another who will see just gyno problems (if you are not pregnant), All through Women's Health here in town)
Lisa Hobbs is one of the most capable providers I have ever had the pleasure dealing with and even she refuses to do home births due to the risk. That doesn't mean it can't be done, but the safety issues should still be carefully considered.

Lisa is retiring and dr garcia is leaving
thus a shortage of people delivering babies
