Attorney at Law at Warren A. Zimmerman, P.A.
This is more an insurance question than a legal question. You might try finding people who either underwrite malpractice insurance in the field of midwifery or salespeople who sell the insurance. Or contact a holistic birthing center in a place where you will not be practicing (but maybe in the same state) and find out how they deal with the risks. Ask these insurance companies what they presently charge to insure a nurse-midwife who has just opened a brand new practice. Ask what requirements they have besides payment of a premium. If you are only 16, then it might be premature to worry about such things. Just research the college and graduate programs that will train you for eventual licensure, and prepare yourself accordingly. Don't worry about getting sued just yet. Get the best training, and you'll be reducing your risk no matter what.Last updated Nov 13 at 22:18
