Home Birth Industry Growth Slow, Despite Law Change

November 21, 2010, 2:54 PM by Kealey Bultena

SIOUX FALLS, SD - A state law passed earlier this year added some permanency to a trial program allowing certified nurse midwives to attend home births in South Dakota. But the state still has only one practice offering the service.

The only certified nurse midwives operating under the law waiving the need for collaborative agreements with doctors are Jeanne Prentice of Spearfish and two nurses who assist her. South Dakota Board of Nursing Executive Director Gloria Damgaard says said the law change was a significant step in opening up birthing options, and acceptance of the industry should grow in South Dakota as it develops a track record.

Damgaard says she expect South Dakota will eventually see a practice open on the eastern side of the state.
