L.A. Midwife Gets Probation

Midwife Sentencing

A former student midwife was just sentenced today to three years probation, 280 hours of community service, and $10,000 dollars restitution — all because a Superior Court Judge decided that she shouldn't be sent to prison for poor judgement.

What was the poor judgment?

Delivering a baby without supervision in an environment considered practicing medicine without a license in 2007. According to authorities the baby's shoulder got stuck during the delivery and the mother's vagina suffered a tear. Both are now fine.

She originally faced up to three years and prison.

Oh, and now she IS a licensed midwife, but she's unable to practice while completing the sentencing.

We can understand delivering a baby in an emergency setting, but that's not what this sounds like. This sounds almost as if she was hired to do it and didn't reveal she was just a student or something — which makes us think that she probably shouldn't be allowed to practice at all under that kind of decision making.

But, maybe this punishment will make sure she never steps over the law again??

Not sure who'd want to hire her after this, though!

311 Frontman Tells Terrifying Story Of Delivering Wife's Baby

Filed under: Baby BlabberMusic Minute

311-nick-hexum-delivers-wife-baby.jpg

We can't even imagine having to delivery a baby! Let alone, without a doctor or a midwife!

311's frontman Nick Hexum was forced to do just that when his wife suddenly went into labor.

He and his wife Nikki had planned on having a home birth for their second daughter, Maxine, but things went awry when she went into labor before her midwife arrived.

Having watch the birth of their first daughter, Echo, Nick wasn't afraid to dive right in and help his wife give birth.

He tells the terrifying and VERY graphic story of how it all went down:

"After Max's head popped out, the delivery stalled for the next couple of contractions. The baby's head was blue and the umbilical cord was wrapped around her neck. I was worried the cord was choking her, keeping blood from getting to her brain.

I knew from observing and listening the first time around that sometimes the baby's shoulder would get caught and they would have to reach in there and break its collar bone to free her. [I] felt the shoulders and rotated the baby back and forth.

I jiggled her around until I heard a 'wahhh!' It was an amazing moment. Everything was fine! We never went to the hospital. We just sat in bed laughing and crying tears of joy about what a crazy experience it was."

Incredible! Such a harrowing experience, but thankfully it turned alright and both momma, daddy, AND baby are fine!

Way to be a hero, Nick!
