Loretta was very good to work with. She brought a confidence and her years of experience that put me at ease. She helped me to have the perfect homebirth experience I desired in 2016. It was wonderful to have Loretta as my midwife. I'd love to work with her again.

The training program is excellent and the midwives are very supportive of providing the birth experience you want. My wife and I both felt like these midwives prepared us very well about what to expect at a birth and what is happening with the baby.

I cannot begin to say thank you thank you thank you enough to this incredible birth team! Hanan, Heather, Loretta, and Sarah. They showed us the incredible world of home birth and all the joy that was available to us, and then they helped make our dream a reality!

Immediately upon walking into My Family Birth Center, I felt very comfortable and welcomed. The center is so beautiful! I love seeing Loretta, she always has a genuine smile on her face! She has great energy and wisdom to help guide you on your childbirth journey.

Loretta is exactly what you want in a midwife: gentle in her approach but fierce in her knowledge and passion for birth and caring for women through pregnancy. She truly loves her work and wants to improve women's health outcomes in all that she does.

Loretta is the warmest. sweetest woman I've met. She is a skilled and passionate midwife, always ready to serve where she's needed. My Family Birth Center is a beautiful, functional facility, the perfect addition to our growing birth community in Ogden!
Our hearts are so full. The delivery was everything we dreamed of. Ed Avalos assisted the delivery, and was a champ! We are home now, just 12 hours after labor began, getting rested up and enjoying Baby.

I invited Loretta to attend my last birth. I chose home water birth, and Loretta's calm confidence enhanced my experience. She valued my opinion and provided excellent care!
— Heather Wade
I have worked with Loretta on more than one occasion, and my experience with her has always been positive. In one particular instance, she was the grounding force for my client and knew exactly how to connect with and meet her needs. I'd say her thoughtful energy and influence was the biggest contributing factor to that successful VBAC.
They showed us the incredible world of home birth and all the joy that was available to us, and then they helped make our dream a reality! It would not have been the same without them, and they are truly amazing! Thank you all so much, and know you are now family! Zachary Lehr

We offer a state-of-the-art licensed birth center where waterbirth is available. Licensed midwives and birth assistants serve with watchful expectancy while the mother, her spouse and loved ones have the birth of her dreams. We keep rules to a minimum and allow the birth to unfold with mother nature. We are just two minutes from Ogden Regional Hospital.
Home birth services are available. Our goal is for two midwives and one birth assistant to attend and give the same watchful care as given in the birth center whenever possible. A birth pool and accessories are available so that the couple may enjoy the comfort of hydrotherapy and finish the birth either as a waterbirth or in the atmosphere of their own furnishings.
Regular business hours Monday-Friday, 10 AM - 4 PM. Open 24 hours for Birth Services.
Women who want to take an active role in their birth will find mutual respect at My Family Birth Center. We encourage women to have a voice in the way their birth unfolds. At My Family Birth Center couples are not confined by the parameters of other facilities. As long as safety is met, the couple is free to create their story.
Located two blocks from Ogden Regional Hospital at 5319 S 500 E Ste C, Ogden, UT 84405.
