sexual perversion and midwifery

I was sexually assaulted at Better Birth during my labor. Later on another woman sent me a report of being sexually assaulted during her labor at Better Birth of Utah, indicating that she experienced the exact same thing that I had. I also got reports from my wordpress statistics website that indicated that midwives and […]

They aren’t sad. They are angry.

One of the most offensive things about the “bad review?” page on Better Birth’s website is the claim that they feel very sad about my situation. They claim to feel sad because they think I am crazy, not because anything bad happened to me, but that is beside the point. I am pretty certain they […]

Building a foundation on truth

…that is the title of a recent post by a woman who started a blog called One Mom’s Battle. Her name is Tina Swithin. Her blog is about her divorce from a man with narcissistic personality disorder. The court system isn’t well suited for dealing with NPD individuals in the family court system (in her […]

trust your gut

When I was pregnant, I read a book called “The Gift of Fear” by Gavin Derossi It detailed how your intuition, the way you know things without knowing how, was your most powerful weapon against violence and abuse. Humans have a tendency to ignore their intuition in favor of fairness or facts, but it may […]

How Not to Run a Business

I’ve been watching Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares recently, and ran across the infamous Amy’s Baking Company episode. This is probably the most talked about episode of the program, because the behavior of the business owners is ridiculously horrid. Gordon Ramsay literally quit trying to help because the owners were completely deluded about the quality of their […]

dreams

  As most people know, nightmares where you relive the trauma are a normal part of PTSD   Sometimes these dreams are especially cruel.   The worst ones, for me, are the dreams where I imagine my abuse was taken seriously. Where the owner of the birth center or the police listen to me and […]

we’re back

Looks like I am going to trial. I thought I would be depressed, but I am looking forward to being able to present my case before a judge once again. I have been given an opportunity to hold the birth center accountable and I am going to embrace it. Wish me luck! I was inspired […]

these are the happy customers?

I decided to look at the stories better birth links to on its website as examples of happy, satisfied customers. I expected idyllic experiences that were undoubtedly within the scope of practice outlined in utah state code. The stories posted make such an assumption questionable. Some of these stories make me wonder why Better Birth linked […]

The questions better birth should have answered

Better Birth has (unofficially) responded to the complaints I have compiled on this website. They never directly address the concerns that are brought up on this website. Here are the questions that I wish they had answered (for future patients): 1. What is an appropriate response when an employee of your birth center is accused […]

The lawsuit is filed

I’ll be in court on december 5th with my husband to let a judge hear the case. Wish me luck everyone! They can’t be doing this sort of thing to other people. I am proud of myself for finally gathering up the strength to file. I hope they feel a bit of pressure about their […]
