Hello Andrea,
I wanted to touch base with you and let you know I spoke with Shannon from the NARM accountability board yesterday morning. She is trying to contact you today or tomorrow about your complaint. We have a plan to move forward and are waiting on receiving paperwork and charts from the midwives to proceed. I just wanted to stay in touch and let you know where we are at. I look forward to working with you to resolve this as best we can. Many prayers for you and your family during the first holiday season after your loss. 

Respectfully,
Rachel Williston, President of MMA

The phone number that I can be reached at is 314-xxx-xxxx. This waiting game is getting a bit overwhelming because it seems as thought no matter what I do I have to wait on this, and wait on that, and all I hear is we didn't get this, and waiting on a response for this person or that person. I just hope that it does not take a whole year. This is a sad case regardless of any holiday season. I wish there was more urgency when an death has taken place especially when a midwife is a fault for a death.

again my sounding irate may be due to midwives not taking my daughters death seriously. There has to be a better way other than mail. Seem irrational. Anyways my phone took a fall in water the other day and my husbands number is the contact number listed please try on 314-xxx-xxxx or email

Andrea,
I assure you we are taking this case very seriously. We had a meeting yesterday to make certain we are doing what NARM requires of us as we move forward. We are in contact with the midwives and waiting on your charts, so that we can review them and schedule the grievance date for the in person interviews. We will try and find someplace close to where you are living to hold the meetings so as to make it as convenient for you as possible. I have sent the phone numbers you gave me on to Shannon so she can speak with you directly if she has not already. 
 We currently use mail to be certain we have all the paperwork completed. I will discuss this with Shannon to see if we can change anything to speed it up while still maintaining confidentiality and dealing with a staff that is spread out through the state. 

Respectfully,

I'm sure these midwives have had no punishments what so ever. I bet you they are still birthing babies. So sad

Andrea,
I have been told that Joann has mailed the records and we should receive them this week. I am sure mail is slow because of the holiday. We will plan to have the information gathering meeting as soon as possible. We have to follow the rules as set out by NARM. I will let you and Shannon know as soon as I receive the records. 
Respectfully,
Rachel Williston
AS YOU CAN SEE WE ARE ABOUT TO ENTER THE MONTH OF JANUARY AND THEY ARE STILL SAYING THE SAME THING. I'VE BEEN DEALING WITH THIS FOR FAR TOO LONG.

  1. I pray you will have these meetings soon. I also pray that you have the resolution you are looking for. Will you have an advocate for you at these meetings?

    1. Believe me I've tried to reach out to many. I cant expect people to want to stand behind me. I guess I will be at these meetings by myself. Just me and my husband we be there I assure you looking stupid as ever in a room full of midwives with crocked faces. Playing our words against hers. You see I already know how it's going to go but I am entitled to a meeting. I will go from there
      Thanks for reading and commenting
