Subject:      Midwives in Shakespeare's Time

I should like to find out how women became OFFICIALLY midwives in Shakespeare's time 
(official midwives were called upon to declare whether a woman was (or not) a witch. 
Is there a book about that, or are there documents I could find -- where? 

Thank you for your help. I know this is not a literary question, but hope one of the 
distinguished Shakespeareans of SHAKSPER knows what I should read.

Anne Cuneo
