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 […]

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 […]

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 appeal has been filed

I’m pumped! It was easier than filing the initial suit. I brought christmas candy to the justice court to apologize for having yelled last time I was there (at Suzanne Smith and Tara Tulley, not the court staff, but I still made their job harder). Everyone was super excited! I think a few people broke […]

Hooray!

I checked out the local court website and it says that I can introduce new evidence in my appeals case. !!!!!!!!!!!! I have a very good feeling about this. also- thank you for all the views. in one day!!!!

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…..

The brighter side of the trial

Suzanne Smith called detective huntington into court as a witness. She seemed to think that my going to the police would bode well for her somehow (????) but the judge said “wow that really is gross negligence” (which voids the contract) instead. I learned that detective huntington did ask a non-midwife about how appropriate the […]

shame on you too, Midwives College of Utah

The cowards at MCU haven’t answered for why their grievance committee never addressed my actual complaints about the policies and management of Better Birth of utah. They just pretended this was about one midwife’s behavior and not about the owner of Better Birth admitting “hey, that’s just how we do things here” (to paraphrase) when […]
