Mary is the youngest of their eight children, and when she married, she andElmer moved into the grandparents’ cottagewith the intention that Elmer would takeover the farm when Aaron wanted to retire.Eight years ago, they traded living space.Now, Aaron continues to help withthe farm work, despite increasing pain in his hip, which the doctor advises should bereplaced. Most of Mary’s and Elmer’s siblings live in the area, though not in the samechurch district or settlement. Two of Elmer’s brothers and their families recentlymoved to Tennessee, where farms are less expensive and where they are helping tostart a new church district.Mary and Elmer’s fifth child, Melvin,was born 6 weeks prematurely and is 1month old. Sarah, aged 13, Martin, aged12, and Wayne, aged 8, attend the Amishelementary school located 1 mile from their home. Lucille, aged 4, is staying withMary’s sister and her family for a week because baby Melvin has been havingrespiratory problems and their physician toldthe family he will need to be hospitalizedif he does not get better within 2 days.At the doctor’s office, Mary suggestedto one nurse, who often talks with Maryabout “Amish ways,” that Menno Martin, anAmish man who “gives treatments,” maybe able to help. He uses “warm hands” totreat people and isespecially good withbabies because he can feel what is wrong. The nurse noticed that Mary carefully placedthe baby on a pillow as she prepared to leave.Elmer and Mary do not carry any health insurance and are concerned aboutpaying the doctor and hospital bills associated with this complicated pregnancy. Inaddition, they have an appointment for Wayneto be seen at Riley Children’s Hospital,3 hours away at the University Medical Center in Indianapolis, for a recurring cystlocated behind his left ear. Plans are beingmade for a driver to take Mary, Elmer,Wayne, Aaron, Annie, and two of Mary’s sisters to Indianapolisfor the appointment.Because it is on the way, they plan to stop inFort Wayne to see an Amish healer whogives nutritional advice and does “treatments.” Aaron, Annie, and Elmer have beenthere before, and the other women are considering having treatments, too. ManyAmish and non-Amish go there and tell othershow much better they feel after thetreatments.They know their medical expenses seem minor in comparison to the familywho last week lost their barn in a fireand to the young couple whose 10-year-old childhad brain surgery after a fall from the hayloft. Elmer gave money to help with theexpenses of the child and will go to the barn raising to help rebuild the barn. Mary’ssisters will help to cook for the barn raising, but Mary will not help this time becauseof the need to care for her newborn.The state health department is concerned about the low immunization rates inthe Amish communities. One community-health nurse, who works in the area whereElmer and Mary live, has volunteered to talkwith Elmer, who is on the Amish schoolboard. The nurse wants to learn how the healthdepartment can work more closely withthe Amish and also learn more about whatthe people know about immunizations. Thecounty health commissioner thinks this is a waste of time and that what they need to dois let the Amish know that they are creatinga health hazard by neglecting or refusingto have their children immunized.Study Questions1.Develop three open-ended questions orstatements to guide you in yourunderstanding of Mary and Elmer and whathealth and caring meanto them and tothe Amish culture.2.    List four or five areas of perinatalcare that you would want to discuss with Mary.3.    Why do you think Mary placed the babyon a pillow as she was leaving the doctor’soffice?4.     If you were the nurse to whom Mrs. Miller confided her interest in taking the babyto the folk healer, what would you do to learn more about their simultaneous use offolk and professional health services?5.     List three items to discuss with the Millers to prepare them for their consultation atthe medical center.6.    If you were preparing the reference for consultation, what would you mention aboutthe Millers that would help to promote culturally congruent care at the medicalcenter?7.    Imagine yourself participating in a meeting with stateand local health departmentofficials and several local physicians and nurses to develop a plan to increase theimmunization rates in thecounties with large Amishpopulations.
