Husband: My wife almost died at better birth

I am currently waiting for the next court date for my trial. I cannot discuss the trial lest I taint someone elses testimony, but it has encouraged me to write and check up on a back log of emails that I did not address at the time. It used to ruin my day to deal […]

Another horror story on Yelp!

You have to click the “10 more reviews not-recommended” link at the bottom to see the following review of Better Birth, which is primarily critical of employee Trinette Thompson. I only had one appointment with her, but she discouraged me from vaccinating and did not know that the flu was a virus instead of a […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

better birth lies about the safety of out of hospital birth

I was poking around better birth’s website the other day, and I was perplexed to find this pdf on their website (titled “The Advantages of Out of Hospital Birth”, by Suzanne Smith LDEM). the very first claim is a whopper: Out-Of-Hospital Birth is Safer than Hospital Birth Yes, that’s right, safer. Scientific studies from around […]

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 […]

Screencap of Suzanne Smith and Tara Tulley on a political committee in response to Valerie El Halta’s arrest

They claimed in court to have little affiliation…..
