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...'
October 13 at 11:31am"

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.


Amendment to Not-So-"Wonderful" Investigation

There are added accusations to the Medical Board of California's investigation of Dr. Robert Biter.

This Amended Accusation also adds an obstetric case.
