I think there is a nuance that you’re not addressing: the US does not have a national standard for what a “midwife” is. Nurse midwives are highly trained professionals. Some states allow midwives to just have some post-high school certification. There is a wide gap in outcomes between the latter group and the former. Nurse midwives are more similar to how other developed countries train their midwives.

I agree it shouldn’t be up to the consumer. But also if you are creating a product aimed at mothers, and you talk about maternal health snd birth outcomes with “midwives” you should be specific about what you mean. Otherwise, many people reading may think all midwives are the same, which you seem to understand they are not.
