Way back in the days, when we all lived natural and we all had shiny white teeth as signs of our superior health and well being , midwives were invented to aid women in the birth experience. They offered their services for money or trade in exchange, a midwife would provide candles, incense and a birth orgasm to the mother --and sometimes the father.
As the years passed, some midwives began to practice what might actually be considered real medicine--they would later turn into OBGYNs and Certified Nurse Midwives--but we don't care about them. I want to tell the story of the women who kept their minds pure and NATURAL.

In the 1600s a whole gaggle of midwives were hanged in Salem. Many historians thought at first they were witches, but newer evidence points out that they were indeed midwives.

Dr. Amy, a skeptical OB demands that all midwives go to Nursing school and get qualifications through the government. She also requests that they have malpractice insurance! And on we revolt!!
