Dr. Biter as Licensed Midwife?

On a Facebook page, Dr. Robert Biter says:

"'Yes I am proud to offer home birth services and am actually getting additional training to become a licensed midwife as well as a board certified Ob Gyn. Women and their families deserve better...'

I wonder if the Medical Board of California (who licenses midwives as well as doctors) will reward him with a license?

Nice he's finally admitting he's attending homebirths, something he's done for over a year now.

Woah! Please tell me that the state of CA will NOT issue a license to this man?! If I were him, I wouldn't be bandying about the whole "board-certified OBGYN" too loudly, given that there's a good chance that he's going to lose his license due to malpractice.

Frankly, this makes me want to vomit. There is something extremely unwholesome about this man.

He's addicted to being hero worshipped...women of California, cut off his supply!

Yeah, nice he's admitting it now. Heard of several "accidental" home births he's attended this last year. I guess since no hospital will grant him privileges he's got to get his ego pumped up somehow. On another frightening side note, he sent another patient to the hospital a couple of weeks ago due to internal bleeding from yet another botched surgery. Hope the State of CA acts quickly and responsibly.

Note that the CA Medical Board has indefinitely suspended his license. He let a mom labor, with a fever, until her baby died in utero (chorio, DIC, pneumonia). Now why should be be a MW if he's not even fit to be a physician?
