I think this is a good idea too, I brought it up a little while ago but it really didn't go anywhere

Great idea, though there should be a disclaimer posted saying the advice is not to replace actually seeing a doctor. That way no one is liable for anything happening. But there are Ask-A-Nurse all over the place, my insurance company has one.

I think this one has been discussed before and if I RECALL correctly (and that's iffy LOL) they decided that there is just too much liability with that......even with disclaimers, people still can feel like they can use that information in place of going to see their doc about potentially dangerous things. Plus, you never really know that a person is REALLY a nurse or midwife or whatnot.... and with life and death you don't wanna mess with that. But, maybe if it's asked for enough...they'll reconsider!

At some point in the future we would like to have a midwife on staff at JM but at this point we don't. When we can do this we will add this as a forum.
