Ind. Law - More on: Legalizing and regulating midwifery should better ensure that practicing midwives are well trained
DeKalb County prosecutors have accused a 55-year-old St. Joe woman of helping deliver babies without a midwife’s license.
Barbara S. Parker told an investigator that she assisted in 48 deliveries in 2012 and that she has averaged 60 to 70 deliveries a year over the past five years, according to court papers.
Parker faces three felony counts of practicing midwifery without a license. The charges stem from three deliveries she performed in early August.
