The Midwives is the name given to a mysterious coven of witches. Very little is known about the origins of the Midwives, its leadership, or its current diaspora. A small group of these witches are first seen in Paranormal Activity 3 when Dennis discovers them performing a ritual inside the garage. They are mentioned in Paranormal Activity 4, but were only referred to as a coven without actually being named. At the end of Paranormal Activity 4, Alex Nelson encounters a large gathering of women with symbol necklaces, but it's left unclear whether these were in fact, witches or followers of the Demon. In the Marked Ones, the coven is given the name the Midwives. A large group of witches were gathered at the farm where Lois formerly lived. They are seen attempting to attack Arturo, also killing a second gang-affiliate Santo, and forcing Hector and Marisol to run into the house. The Midwives are known to have some sinister objective of creating an army of demon-possessed children for reasons that have yet to be revealed.
