midwives

Our midwives have extensive experience in natural out-of-hospital birth.  We believe the relationship with your midwives is very important, and can have a big impact on your birth.  It's so important to feel comfortable.  Trust should come easy.  We’ll become good friends through your pregnancy, and will laugh together often.

mission

Welcome to BetterBirth!  Our mission is to help you achieve the best possible birth experience. We specialize in natural birth whether in a birth center or at home, and in water birth.  We also offer prenatal care only, and through our partnerships with other providers, we offer hospital birth in the Salt Lake City area.  We have multiple clinic and birth center locations so we can make our services as convenient as possible.  In addition to our clinics and birth centers, we have a traveling clinic to serve more outlying areas where excellent prenatal care and birth options are not as accessible. 

who we are

What we do


the little things

There are so many little things you’ll love about BetterBirth.  Our office is child friendly with toys and books in every room, and children are always welcome at your appointments.  (Be prepared...they often complain about having to leave when they’re not finished playing yet!)  We schedule carefully so you’ll rarely sit down in our waiting room, and there is plenty of time to talk about questions and concerns or just chit-chat about whatever is going on for you.  We want you to be well-informed, so we offer educational e-mails each week of your pregnancy and postpartum period.  Our 24-hour hotline means you can reach a midwife anytime you need to, and urgent visits are always available.

philosophy

We see birth as a normal, healthy process, and we expect it to be so throughout your experience with us.  Most importantly, we believe you should be in control.  We’ll give you information and options, then support your decisions.  There are no “everyone has to...” policies here.  You’ll have your baby your way with BetterBirth.

"There are a lot of things I like about BetterBirth but one of the things I love is that it is not operated like a doctor's office with a lot of sitting around.  In and out and on with my day.  If I bring my kids there's toys to keep them occupied and there was never a feeling that I was inconveniencing someone with the presence of a child."
