Jessica is passionate about caring for women and families throughout the adventure of pregnancy and birth. She has wanted to be a midwife since before high school, feeling that it is her calling in life. After spending a year volunteering as a birth and postpartum doula, she then spent many more years apprenticing with a variety of midwives and studying towards becoming a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM). As a midwife she believes that all women deserve compassionate, steady and informed support throughout their unique reproductive journeys and focuses on providing a safe space for them to deepen their awareness of the birthing process while offering the information they need to make empowered choices.
When not working, one of her favorite things to do is cuddle up with her family at home and read a good book. She also loves being part of musical productions and to go dancing in her community.
Bethany is a passionate advocate for natural childbirth, and for parents being able to write their own birth story. Bethany’s first introduction to midwifery care was with her fifth baby. This time she employed the services of a midwife and could not believe how different that birth was! She was so pleased with her experience, she decided she wanted to become a midwife and help other women achieve their birthing dreams!
Beginning in 2019, she apprenticed with several midwives at My Family Birth Center and she counts herself lucky to have learned from them. Next to raising her 5 children, Bethany considers becoming a CPM a major highlight in her life. She is so thankful she gets to play a small part in helping mamas birth these beautiful little souls.
Bethany is a certified Nutritional Herbalist with The School of Natural Healing.
Reading is among her favorite things to do as she loves to learn. In her spare time, Bethany enjoys spending time with her family, hiking, gardening, and yoga.
Micah is passionate about helping women and families during the prenatal and birth process. She went to school for her bachelor in nursing at UNC-Greensboro. She is a Southern girl at heart. She was raised in North Carolina with the best of mountains and beaches. She moved to Salt Lake City to work on Labor and Delivery and to study in the midwifery program at the University of Utah.
She worked on the OB flight team at the University Hospital. Micah met her soul mate and lived the Army life. Her husband served as a helicopter mechanic and deep sea diver. They currently live in North Ogden. They have five children and enjoy camping, gardening, and sports.
Her desire and passion to help women in the birthing process stemmed from reading stories of midwives who would travel to homes in the country to help women during birth. She wants to help empower women to do what the body has naturally done for thousands of years.
My best friend introduced me to midwifery during my last keeper pregnancy. I had never really thought of this path until then. Prior to that I have always been a huge advocate for natural birth and breastfeeding. All of my friends and even acquaintances would come to me asking for advice on many things. I really enjoyed empowering these women to stand their ground and go for what they wanted. I am now currently in my 2nd year with Midwives College of Utah working my way to a Bachelor’s degree and the CPM certification.
Born and raised in Wyoming I am a cowgirl, mother and wife. I have been married 14 years and have 3 beautiful children as well as one Surrogate baby and currently pregnant with my 2nd Surrogate baby. You can usually find me with my horses, outside, or with my family. I am so excited to finally be pursuing my dream.
