Utah health department: Home birth kills babies that would otherwise have lived

Originally posted on Safer Midwifery in Utah :
The Utah Health Department released a study on home birth, and it mirrors the findings of the data released in Oregon several years ago by Judith Rooks (CNM). According to page 10 of the document, neonatal deaths in home birth happened at a rate 2.3 x the rate…

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 […]

Suzanne Smith, Better Birth LLC owner, comments on patient consent

The lawsuit I brought against Better Birth LLC was focused mainly on two examinations performed by ex-employee Ester Werbach (who now deceptively goes by Nueve Lunas Maternidad online). The first examination entailed Ester Werbach digging her fingernails into my cervix during a contraction, ignoring my pleas for the examination to end because of the excruciating […]

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 […]

another set back

Looks like I will be waiting weeks to hear if my lawsuit is going to be dismissed or not, as well as if my therapy notes are going to go to the birth center’s attorneys. I’m bringing the therapist with me so I don’t understand why they need to read through the notes (unless of […]

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 […]

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 […]

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┬áthe 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 […]

Better Birth has hired an attorney

Instead of doing the right thing (apologizing and paying the money they owe me), Better Birth has hired an attorney. So I will need to as well. If anyone has any referrals please let me know by leaving a comment. edited to add: I can obtain an audio recording of the first trial! I’ll put […]
