Makes it a Class B misdemeanor to practice midwifery without a license. Allows the board to specify circumstances under which a licensed certified professional midwife may administer certain prescription drugs. Provides that the following persons are not civilly liable for acts or omissions relating to services provided to a woman who is under the care of a licensed certified professional midwife: (1) A health care provider who renders care in an emergency. (2) An employee, a student, an intern, a trainee, or an apprentice who acts under the direction and supervision of a licensed certified professional midwife.
