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 […]

facing my abuser in court

One of the worst moments in court for me was when Ester Werbach was called to the stand. The defense announced that her father had died that week so she may have “emotional problems” because of that. But she didn’t, at all. I would describe her demeanor as emotionless, cold. I tried really hard not […]

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 […]

Nueve Lunas Maternity = Ester Werbach (UPDATE: now also calling herself Ester Rolaiser)

Ester Werbach touched me inappropriately during an exam, with held food if I did not submit to that exam, and ignored my pleas for her to stop an examination because it was unbelievably painful. Better Birth of Utah no longer employs her, but they do refer spanish speaking clients to her maternity service. Don’t let […]

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 […]

Ester Werbach is still practicing, and better birth recommends her

I am absolutely, completely disgusted with every midwife in Utah right now. I disclosed some gross negligence and sexual abuse by a midwife named Ester Werbach at Better Birth of Utah. She left Better Birth (or was fired, there is no way to know). I had assumed that since I had outed this woman for […]

midwives college of utah dishonesty (AGAIN)

So, as many of you know, I attempted to report Better Birth of Utah to the Midwives College of Utah because I was concerned about the pattern of negligence that I discovered after being mistreated there. I found a string of women who had problems, doulas who wouldn’t rate the place nicely, ex students bad […]

Shame on you, Tara Tulley.

I already have a few posts up about Tara Tulley, but the information is scattered, so I thought I would make a final summarizing post. Tara Workman Tulley has decided that the screencaps of her own words are too embarrassing to leave online- they have been deleted, but I have a copy. When a midwife […]
