Midwifery Skills Limited by Licensure
This inquiry is intended to survey the actual experiences of midwives who are currently practicing, or have previously practiced, in relation to being regulated, certified, or licensed. It is not intended to convey approval or disapproval but is a compilation of questions a group of midwives came up with. The group consisted of unregulated, licensed, and certified midwives. There was also input from consumers and others who work in the birth field.

I thank you for taking the time to answer these questions about your experiences. At some point, this survey may be made public. Please keep that in mind when answering. By taking this survey, you are giving your permission for your answers to be published. If you would be willing to be contacted for further questions or input, please leave your email address, or other contact information at the end. If you don't wish to be contacted, or want your answers to remain anonymous, do not leave your email address.

Thank you again.
Lindy Casey, CPM, LM
