Experimental Midwifery Service Drawing Many Women in New York (C) Neus York Times Service NEW YORK - Middle-income women are turning in growing numbers to an experimental private midwifery service at Roosevelt Hospital here because they say they are dissatisfied with the insensitivity of male obstetricians and high doctor's fees and because they believe the nurse- midwives will give them a higher quality of care. The preference of these women for the nurse-midwife in a hospital instead of a doctor has further dispelled any lingering concept of the midwife as an old-fashioned figure delivering babies at home in rural area. . Instead the nurse-midwife is emerging as a specialist in her own right, one who specializes in caring for women with nor'. mal pregnancies. The nurse-midwife's philosophy of care-providing the best possible experience for mother and child -and their performance, are attracting those women who ordinarily seek private care from a physician. Other m i d w i f e programs here have served mainly the poor. Women visit hos- .'. pital clinics and are cared for by a physician and whatever nurse-midwife happens to be on duty. 'Ado About Little' Reagan's Picture Of Furor on CIA LOS ANGELES (AP) - Former California- Gov. Ronald Reagan says the furor over the Central Intelligence Agency is "much ado about - if not nothing - at least very little." He said the United States' intelligence- gathering ability has suffered "inestimable harm" because of a "witch hunting mood." Reagan, a member of Vice President Nelson Rockefeller's panel which investigated the CIA last spring, made the comments in a recorded segment of his "Viewpoint" radio show. The show was released to 310 stations for broadcast this weekend or later. The five nurse-midwives in the Roosevelt Hospital private program, though they work as a group, care for the women much as an obstetrician would -- handling all aspects of the pregnancy, the birth and the postpartum period without the assistance of a doctor. Physicians are always on ca 11 . however, should complications occur. So many women have made use of Roosevelt's midwifery service that Dr. Thomas F. Dillon, director of obstetrics and gynecology at the hospital, predicted that the midwives would soon have to start turning away patients because they would have reached their capacity. The five midwives delivered 100 babies last year and they expect to deliver 200 this year. + * * MIDWIVES DO NOT GET paid for individual deliveries. The average salary for a nurse-midwife at Roosevelt is $20,000 a year, according to Barbara Brennan, the head of the hospital's midwifery service. Dillon, who started the program a year and a half ago as an experiment to find out whether such a program was feasible, said. "I didn't think the program would get this big. The thing grew more rapidly than I anticipated. "We have tapped a group of people that are women-oriented. Beyond that, I'm sure we've tapped much more-something else. And right now I don't know what that is." Dillon said the idea of such a private midwifery service had been "rolling around in my head" for four years. "It seemed to me that many of the babies going to be delivered in the United States would not be delivered by doctors because of the sheer numbers involved," he said. "Practically," he said, "the concept of having a group of patients cared for by midwives with doctors as back-ups in case there are complications was the best of the new and the old." So the experimental midwifery service evolved to determine whether midwives could handle routine, uncomplicated pregnancies alone and whether it was possible for midwives to detect and screen out expectant mothers who were expected to have difficult deliveries. Miss Brennan said she had found that the women who had sought the service were "well-educated, well-informed, up on the most current literature about pregnancy, and they have shopped around." Some are doctors, other professionals and doctors' wives, she said. "We get quite a few R.N.'s too," she added. old photos copied!
