Hi,

So, my description is too specific ? What if I just drop the following 
sentence ? It is not really meaningful, anyway.
"In some countries, like France, a midwife is a profession on its own, 
not a specialized nurse like e.g. in the U.S.".

Also, about rendering : here in France, midwives in hospitals/clinics 
usually wear a pink suit. So, I guess the doctor symbol could be used if 
changed from red to pink. What do you think ?

Cheers,
David.
