I don't understand what you mean here. I have no experience with OSM.

I guess it depends a lot on the country ! For example, in France, the
only definition is : a place where a woman can exercise and get prepared
for childbirth, get cured for a range of gynaecological problems (from
puberty to end of life), get prescription for contraceptives, be taken
care of before and after childbirth. It is NOT a place to give birth.
Midwives who run a place like this in France are not linked to a clinic

I am not an English speaker. I meant an independent worker like a
doctor, a lawyer, etc. running his own business. But maybe this can be
just removed, so as to be more generic.

I don't really see why, but again, I have no experience with OSM...
