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 […]

A new report of inappropriate touching at Better Birth

I received an email awhile ago… I am sorry I neglected to check on the account here earlier, but here it is. Hi, I have a feeling Esther Werbach was at the birth of my child. I already had my midwife and her assistant there, but at the last minute they asked this other lady […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
