Two different trials in Oregon are expected to bring more scrutiny to the practice of being a mid wife. in Eugene, a woman who’s baby was born dead after eight days of labor is suing. She says the two midwives who attended that birth refused to take her to the hospital, and didn’t appear to know how to performn CPR on the infant. In Oregon City members of a faith healing church has a premature baby die 9 hours after birth, with a midwife helping. Oregon and Utah are currently the only states that don’t require midwives to be licensed. About half of practicing midwives in Oregon are unlicensed. And increase in recent complaints has licensed midwives stressed out and it’s driving up their costs. Most of them favor increasing regulation for midwives in Oregon. In the trial of the Oregon City couple: the defense is wasting no time going on the attack. They are trying to prove that Dale and Shannon Hickman are being targeted.  They are members of "Followers of Christ Church" and the fourth set of members prosecuted in the last two years.
