There is a post which I am always referring people to which explains some of the points of EMTALA - a piece of federal legislation stating that a woman who goes to any hospital in active labor cannot be turned away and must be treated according to her wishes until the baby and placenta are delivered.
"I trust birth—not birth attendants—for if you only trust birth that is attended then you really don't trust birth at all. You trust the attendant. And then you start over. Who? Doctor, surgeon, CNM, CPM, SIM? And it goes on and on...." - Carla Hartley
