halcionne posted a topic in Duggar Adjacent ArchiveThis is tangentially Duggar related, but I think it's a good topic for Quiver Full of Snark because I'm hoping FJers will want to talk about midwife charlatans and the like, not just the Duggar connection. Venessa Giron, a lay midwife from Tontitown, AR, delivered a baby who developed group b strep and nearly died in February, 2014. The baby is okay now. Venessa's license was revoked with no fanfare sometime last week. She happened to be supervising Jill and Jana Duggar's lay midwife apprenticeships, so their permits were revoked as well. The GBS+ case was discussed a little bit during Jill's never-ending pregnancy here: viewtopic.php?f=87&t=25434&hilit=supervisor&start=540 but a lot of people missed it and I'm not sure how deep the discussion went. I read every word of those threads and it went right over my head. I have a tendency to write a wall of text when I make a new topic, and people don't care to add, maybe. So I'm trying to keep this brief. I have links to Venessa's facebook and screenshots of relevant fb posts, links to the state registry where Venessa's name was removed last week. I have the name of the baby and her family, but I'm not sure I will share it here; there hasn't been any media report about this and I don't want to "out" anyone who hasn't done anything wrong, except possibly hire a reckless midwife. A Mommy's Butterfly Midwifery: https://www.facebook.com/pages/A-Mommys ... 97?fref=ts It looks like she's catching babies somewhere, but presumably not in Arkansas. She is originally from Texas and offers services in Oklahoma as well.
