Re: Amish birth center study

Lots of Amish women use centers like this. There is a birth center staffed with an Amish midwife who has a Dr on call 1 hour from here. There is also a free standing birth center in Lancaster with Dr and midwives. Many, many Amish women use non-Amish midwives. In fact, I met my first Amish ladies attending thier births as an "Englischer" Although they would prefer an Amish or "plain" midwife, it is not always possible. Of course in Lancaster they are making a choice between a number of Amish, plain midwives, birth center and hospital. The birth center is very, very busy, caters entirely to the plain community and they are all there by choice.
