Mercy wrong to abandon midwives
We were saddened to read that Mercy Hospital will no longer allow Kathy Slone to continue her midwifery practice at their hospital ("Mercy to sever ties with midwife group," Oct. 11). We have three beautiful daughters, and our youngest two were delivered by Kathy and her staff. What extraordinary compassion, professionalism and intuition midwives bring to the birthing process. They practice what women have passed down since time began. Midwives focus on bringing a baby into the world as naturally as possible, relying on women's strength and the support of their families.
