Truly passionate about helping women and birthing babies.

My experience with My Family Birth Center was everything I had hoped for. I just my entire birth plan at 35 weeks. I had a tour of the Family Birth Center and it is such a beautiful and serene place. Loretta is one of the sweetest people and you can tell she is truly passionate about helping women and birthing babies. I'm so lucky to have found this place before my baby came. The tub was large and comfortable. They had calming music playing and lavender oil diffusing for me. The entire staff is so supportive and amazing. Every person I met there made me feel so loved and taken care of. After the birth of my daughter, Loretta made my husband and I a beautiful meal. These ladies will always have a connection to my family they gave us such a beautiful experience for the most precious moment of our lives so far.

So soothing, This was my favorite birth

Here, it was different. It was you can do this, We totally got this, everybody working for me to make it. If we were to have another baby I will definitely come back to the birthing center and do it again right here with Loretta and her team.

Loretta is exactly what you want in a midwife.

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. The birth center is beautiful and clean and they do home births as well. Highly recommended!

I'd love to work with her again.

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 birth experience I desired in 2016. It was wonderful to have Loretta as my midwife. I'd love to work with her again.

The More Research we did, The More it Made Sense

I came into my family birth center and it's gorgeous and it just made me feel super comfortable and Loretta was amazing. She made me feel very calm. She was amazing answering all my questions, and it just made sense the natural way. Our bodies are built for this... It was the first bit of relief I'd had just being here in the center. I already liked my nurse. Everything started calming down, the lights were dim, It was very relaxing for me. It's just kind of nice Loretta specialized the room to me and she had lavender oil in the diffuser because she had asked me you know like if there was any kind of oil that's calming to me. She justmade the whole environment specific tome and my husband was able to sit by me next to the bathtub the whole time. Loretta just has such a calming factor about her and she's so wonderful at what she does. You could tell she was passionate about it and the whole time was just there for me.

Very professional in everything that she did.

Loretta was very professional in everything that she did when she delivered our baby. I recommend her to everyone as she is very good at being a midwife. She did a great job and made it a pleasant experience for everyone. I really appreciated the attention and care she gave my wife during the entire birthing process.

Felt very comfortable and welcomed.

Immediately upon walking into My Family Birth Center, I felt very comfortable and welcomed. The center is so beautiful! Each room is clean and ready for patients to come and be well taken care of. 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.I went to Mother Nurture Baby for a massage by Mindy Bigler. It was the most excellent massage I've ever received! She was attentive to my needs and comfort. I would definitely go back again! Thanks, My Family Birth Center for the wonderful recommendation!

She is a blessing!

The birth center is amazing and the people are so nice. The place is cozy and is a lovely place to birth at. It would be like birthing at a vacation home. I like that it is so close to McKay Dee Hospital. It is reassuring that if any issues would arise the hospital is super close by. Loretta is so supportive with any situation and I love what she is doing for the birthing community. She is a blessing!

Peaceful, Comfortable, & Safe

We came in and just like I walked in and just the feeling that you feel here, it was just peaceful and comfortable and safe and I knew this is where I wanted to bring our baby into the world.

- Ryan & Chelsea


We highly recommend My Family Birth Center!

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.Due to other circumstances, we decided it was best for us to do a hospital birth. These ladies were very supportive and even gave us a referral to professionals at the hospital who helped my wife have the birth experience she wanted.We highly recommend My Family Birth Center!

Environment at My Family Birth Center is warm, welcoming and clean.

After visiting Loretta's business and confirming that I was pregnant I could not think of another place that I wanted to birth our baby. The environment at My Family Birth Center is warm, welcoming and clean. The decorating is awesome!! And the staff made me feel like I was the only patient! They loved me and cared for me in the most unique way and I will forever be grateful. Loretta has gathered a collection of amazing medical professionals that range from NP, RN, Midwifes, doulas and other heath care professions. This eclectic mix of women & men are all focused on helping women have a safe & meaningful birth through the power of womanhood & natural birth. All though I was unable to deliver at the birth center due to complications Loretta and her team were by my side the whole time and provided care even at the hospital & after I came home. This act of compassion gave me great comfort in a very distressing time and I will forever love these women for their care.

Incredibly kind and warm, making us feel right at home!

I found out I was pregnant with my first just a few months after moving to the Ogden area and quickly began researching my birthing options. After discovering My Family Birth Center, I knew a hospital birth just wouldn't offer the same experience. My husband and I went in for a free consultation and met Loretta, who is so incredibly kind and warm, making us feel right at home! The facility itself is gorgeous, inviting, and relaxing. I knew this was the best option for me to have the kind of prenatal care and birth that I wanted most. Loretta was extremely knowledgable, helpful and available to answer any questions I had. She helped me find natural or diet-based solutions to any issues that arose throughout my pregnancy. She was extremely attentive to all of my desires and concerns, always offering advice or solutions. Thank you, My Family Birth Center, for providing the Ogden area with a beautiful birthing facility and helping me have my dream birth!

It's not every day you meet someone that compassionate.

My husband and I decided to check out my family birth center when I was about 11 weeks pregnant. I experienced a bleed during my pregnancy and unfortunately I had experienced a loss my first pregnancy in kind of a similar way and I didn't know if coming to a birth center would be an option for me. When we got here Loretta took me right back and put an ultrasound on my belly and showed me my baby's heartbeat. I didn't even have to sign a paper I just walked in the door and she did that for me. It's not every day you meet someone that compassionate. I will never forget that Loretta was so compassionate and so kind to do that for us and that's stuck with me. It stood out. It's different than being at a hospital. At a hospital, when I delivered my older son, I felt like I was kind of business as usual. I don't think my doctor would remember me... I still have a hard time believing that I had a baby boy in a bathtub and with no pain medicine. It was pretty incredible. It was an experience that I will never forget and one that bonded me was my husband and my baby.

My birth was amazing and I felt so comfortable and right at home!

I've been holding off writing a review because I wanted to express everything perfectly. I am now realizing that I cannot put into words how amazing this facility, Loretta and the rest of the staff are. My birth was amazing and I felt so comfortable and right at home! I wish everyone could have the same birth experience that My Family Birth Center has given me the gift of.

Loretta connects with people & understands your needs.

I love the environment. I love the place. I love that it is close to a hospital in case it's an emergency... I really enjoy being here. It was a really nice experience to have my baby at the birth center. I felt free to move, that's my number one thing. I don't like to be in a bed, being stuck in a bed with IVs and sensors with two-foot cords going to a computer to monitor the baby. It isn't helpful. I did feel safe during my birth because I knew that there are so many midwives here. My lord, I have been a nurse for like 30 years and there's a midwife that has like 20 years of experience, so I knew they will know if I need to be transfered. I knew I had a wonderful birth team that were knowledgeable, so I wasn't worried. I felt relaxed and I felt in charge of my birth experience. I liked that the bathtub was ready for me anytime I wanted to get in. Our baby was healthy, and everything was fine. I think what is special about Loretta is that she connects with people and she understands your needs. She offers you a lot of possibilities.

Amazing team and I couldn't look any further.

When I started looking for midwives my first appointment was with My Family Birth Center. First step in and first impression of Loretta and her amazing team and I couldn't look any further. They were beyond supportive of exactly how me and my husband wanted to deliver our daughter. And on the night of her birth we couldn't have asked for a better experiance! I wish I could describe what a magical night and how much help these women are but words cannot begin to describe! Thank you again to Loretta, Micah and Eryn for making our special night everything we had hoped!

Wonderful calming presence and is so knowledgeable!

Loretta is a wonderful calming presence and is so knowledgeable! My Family Birth Center is one of the pretties birth centers in the state! It is so clean and the staff is so professional. Thank you for serving the women of Northern Utah, this birth center is such a welcome asset to the birth community!

- Bonnie Wray Baker


Very knowledgeable about so many different things!

Loretta is so sweet and kind. She creates the space for women to have a voice in their birth experience. She is very knowledgeable about so many different things! She's amazing! The birth center is fantastic and to me has the feel of a nice vacation home. I highly recommend my family birth center.

Wanted to go where it could be what she wanted.

One of my favorite things about it was I never felt unsafe. I felt like the team around us because of the birth center was so efficient so professional I felt looked after the entire time, For whatever reason a lot of people have the idea in their head what a birth center is and this wasn't what we expected. It's a beautiful clean friendly facility that's bright and fun. Even though we ended up doing our actual birth at home, we really enjoyed the staff in the facility a lot. I think anybody who's been in a hospital room for a birth knows that it's not like a home at all, and this facility is very much so like a home.

- Zach & Angelica


Awesome homebirth midwife!

It's been a pleasure working along side the ladies at My Family Birth Center, in our birth community. You all bring such a wonderful peace and love to families. I'm thankful for Loretta, and for the option of a beautiful birth center (and awesome homebirth midwife!) in our community.

I was able to have the birth of my dreams.

I decided to switch to My Family Birth Center when I was around 30 weeks and it was the Best. Decision. Ever. I was able to have the birth of my dreams. Loretta helped me solve issues that my previous midwife told me where just normal things associated with pregnancy. The birth center is so calm and full of love. It is the perfect environment to bring a new baby into the world. I can’t sing enough praise to the staff at My Family Birth Center.

I would highly recommend this birth center.

After finding out I was pregnant with my fifth I knew I didn't want it to be a hospital birth, I had all figured it out till I found out my midwife had moved out of state so I decided to find an doctor, after my first appointment It didn't feel right to birth at a hospital even though the doctor was a great doctor, I kept searching for options till I saw a promotion to win a voucher at My Family Birth Center so I put my name in the list thinking "if I get this prize it's because Heavenly Father is sending me a message", and to my surprise I found out a few weeks later that I was the winner. The moment I walked inside the birth center for the first time I felt pretty good, the place is beautiful and transpires peace and warmth, I felt like I knew Loretta since a long time ago even though it was the first time I met her, I chose to have a student midwife and having Sarah Fairlight and Heather Withley as my midwifes was great, they answered every question I had, and when the day came to meet my baby boy Loretta, Heather, Sarah and Kandice were there for me to help me and support me in our family journey to meet our baby, it was a beautiful experience to give birth at the birth center. I would highly recommend this birth center and the wonderful midwives that work there. This will be the place I will give birth again if I find myself pregnant for a sixth time.

Birth center was relaxed and comfortable.

Working with My Family Birth Center was everything I could have ever hoped for when it came to bringing our first born into the world. I appreciated the very personal and loving touch every one of the staff members have. Prenatal visits were informative and fun. Laboring and delivering inside the birth center was relaxed and comfortable. The midwives and assistants truly focused on my comfort and most importantly the safety of me and my baby. I literally couldn't have done it without them. I would recommend a natural birth experience to anyone expecting, and I surely will rave about My Family Birth Center for forever. Thank you so so so so so much!

I had an amazing pregnancy and wonderful labor.

I had an amazing pregnancy and wonderful labor thanks to the midwives here. It is so calming and relaxing. I believe the relaxing environment helped in making my labor shorter. I had the birth that I wanted with the help of the incredible midwives. Im so glad I chose this place over the traditional hospital!

I love how they treat everyone who walks through their doors like family.

The midwives at My Family Birth Center always treat the families that come in with genuine love and kindness. They make sure you are taken care of and always provide you with the best of care. During labor they can either leave you alone or labor with you. You have the choice of what positions, food, family, cloths and location you want to be in for your labor and birth. The midwives are highly trained individuals that monitor you and your baby (without strapping you down or strapping something to you) so that no surprises arise and you get the care that you need immediately. I would recommend them to anyone! I love how they treat everyone who walks through their doors like family.
