Also, can you share where you got your statistics for Oregon out of hospital births for 2010? Did this include anomalies? I happen to know that in at least one of the baby deaths in the out of hospital community the baby had anomalies where he/she would not have survived no matter where born. Also, any 2010 statistics/data you have is anectodal, and not scientifically valid, as 2008 Oregon vital statistics records haven't even been released yet and won't be for several more months; 2007 is the latest date for which perinatal outcomes have been published.
I am also wondering if your midwifery group counts in your statistics baby's that you transfer out of your care in labor. For example, if something in the labor happens that makes the mom higher risk and you transfer her to the care of the physicians, but her baby dies, do you count this in your statistics for neonatal or fetal deaths? I ask because out of hospital midwives do.
