Two recent updates in the effort to legalize Direct-entry Midwifery:

In Utah, House Bill 227 passed out of committe by a nine-to-one vote, reports KSL-TV (AP). The bill will require licensing, but will allow non-nurse midwives to administer certain medications.

In South Dakota, however, SB176 was killed in the Senate Health Committee. The Aberdeen News reports that the bill would have regulated home-birth attendants under the state Board of Nursing.
