Some people have gotten together and collected stories, advice and reference material for midwives (and really anyone) who might be involved in a lawsuit. The book is available online, but you can buy a paper copy if you would like.
I questioned the statement, "Interestingly, there are no current prosecutions of unlicensed midwives in the states that license midwives" in the first chapter, and I found out that "Being unlicensed will always have a higher risk of prosecution, but statistically you are safer to be unlicensed in a licensed state than practicing in an unlicensed state." The reasoning is that if the state licenses midwives, the burden of prosecution falls on the licensing agency, and they don't have the resources to prosecute everyone, whereas if the state does not license midwives, the burden falls on the state, and they can just spend the taxpayers money.
