Judy Kay Jones – the “midwife from hell” who attended me at home and nearly got me killed twice and who is currently facing manslaughter charges in the death of a Nebraska baby, wrote the following “advice” which she uses to prepare her client families to cover up her incompetence and neglect in the event of an adverse outcome:
I am a R.N., B.S.N. and I have been a Bradley teacher for over 25 years. I have also been a Homebirth Class teacher and studied lay midwifery. This is the advice I give to birthing families and to midwives who get into trouble. I know this may not w ork in more complicated circumstances. But this advice eliminates most petty problems before they become full blown.
To the family planning a home birth: Keep your mouth shut about your plans.
To the family who transports to the hospital in labor: Keep your mouth shut about the homebirth.
If the family feels intimidated by questions at the hospital: Keep your mouth shut. Pretend that you don’t understand. Play dumb. It’s not against the law to be dumb.
To the family involved in a third stage or neonatal hospital transport: Only report that the mother was in labor and all of a sudden the baby just came out! A spontaneous labor will not be investigated.
To the family whose midwife is being investigated: When the investigators arrive at your home, tell them “I don’t want to talk about it”.

Over time, NLQ has developed into a valuable resource of information regarding the deceptions and dangers of the Quiverfull philosophy and lifestyle. Several more former QF adherents are now contributing their stories to NLQ and our collective voice makes these Quiverfull warnings impossible to dismiss or ignore.
