deferring clinical responsibility to your chosen maternity care provider.

TESTIMONIALS

Heather is such an amazing and inspiring woman. She is super knowledgeable and a genuinely nice person. In my opinion, having the right midwife is the most important thing when having a home birth and I obsessed trying to find the right one until I found her. My home birth was magical and life changing and it wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for her and her assistant Stephanie. I try to avoid medication as much as possible and I appreciate the fact that she recommended several natural remedies and specific food options throughout my pregnancy, specially towards the end of my pregnancy when my water broke and I didn’t have any contractions. I did what she said and had my baby a few hours after. She made me feel like I had a choice with several medical procedures and always gave me alternatives. She always goes above and beyond and I will forever be grateful for everything she did for me and the way she made me feel.

TESTIMONIALS


Heather is a truly magnificent midwife who deserves more than a five star review. From consultation to prenatal care to the birth of our third child with her, I never doubted that we chose the right care provider for our family. Heather and her birth assistant, Stephanie are a well oiled machine; I couldn’t ask for a better team to have made sure we were well taken care of.
Our birth was beautiful and perfect in everyway.
We are so happy with the care we received.
If you want to feel safe and secure at your home birth, you won’t regret going to Sego Lily Midwifery.

Thank you for everything, Heather!

TESTIMONIALS


I was a late transfer to Heather at 36 weeks after relocating to Utah. She welcomed my family and I with open arms into her practice & supported us with her years of knowledge and experience. Heather educated us on all our different options with newborn care & we felt extremely informed when making decisions. She coached me through the most beautiful home birth experience, fighting for me in moments I couldn’t fight for myself. She acted quickly and with confidence when my son was born with his cord wrapped many times & has gracefully supported me postpartum. I don’t plan to have any more children any time soon but working with Heather has made me think twice about that plan just so we can spend more time with her! She is a treasure, extremely intuitive & trustworthy. Definitely consider Heather when searching for your home birth midwife!
Thank you for everything, Heather!

TESTIMONIALS


Working with Heather as our
Midwife has been amazing. She is truly a master in the art of birth, and helped assist and guide us through bringing our healthy and beautiful boy Django Earth-side. This was my second home birth, and I’m so happy I decided to work with Heather this time. She has many years of experience and is a mother of 5 herself. You can feel her wisdom and confidence in you knowing your own body and intuition in this incredibly natural human experience. Thank you Heather, we are so grateful for you, forever!
Thank you for everything, Heather!

Is if safe to have my baby at a home or in a free standing birth suite?

YES
Outcomes of Planned Homebirths with Certified Profesional Midwives; Large Prospective Study in North America, 2005
Planned home birth for low risk women in North America using Certified Professional Midwives was associated with lower rates of medical intervention but similar intrapartum and neonatal mortality to that of low risk hospital births in the United States

Birth Outcomes for Planned Home and Licensed Free Standing Birth Center Births in Washington State, 2021
Women who intended at the start of labour to have a home birth with a Certified Professional Midwife had a low rate of intrapartum and neonatal mortality, similar to that in most studies of low risk hospital births in North America. A high degree of safety and maternal satisfaction were reported, and over 87% of mothers and neonates did not require transfer to hospital.


“This study quantifies maternal and perinatal outcomes for a large contemporary cohort of planned community births meeting eligibility criteria in Washington State, where midwifery is
well-established and regulated and midwifery data collection is mandated by law. Overall, we found low cesarean birth rates (4.7%), high physiologic birth rates (85%), high breastfeeding
rates (93%) and low rates of complications. The perinatal mortality rate in this cohort was comparable with other international settings, defined as high-income countries where
community birth and community midwifery are an established part of the health care system. Importantly, rates of maternal and newborn adverse outcomes were similar for planned home and birth center births.”

2

Do you offer water birth and is it safe?

YES and YES

The Cochrane review found evidence that laboring in water reduces the use of epidurals and spinals for pain relief. Warm water immersion can diminish stress hormones, and decrease
pain sensation. It directly reduces pain by increasing the body’s natural pain relievers (endorphins) and can ease muscle tension that occurs with labor. It allows the mother to relax between contractions.

Further, the Cochrane Collaboration review of water birth in three randomized, controlled trials (RCTs) shows “no research that demonstrates adverse effects to the fetus or neonate.”

3

Can my family be present for the birth at the birth suite?

YES

Normal undisturbed birth requires a high level of privacy. Those first babies can typically take a long time. We are not equipped for long hours of hosting extended family members while ensuring your privacy. Staff does not provide childcare. We also want to ensure privacy of a potential second birthing mother onsite. It is our recommendation that family members make accommodations to wait offsite and meet you at home in the hours after birth. If you are attached to inviting extended family members to your birth, we advise you to invite them during the pushing stage. We discuss this extensively in prenatal care and make wise plans together.

Do you offer pain management during births?

YES
Hydrotherapy has been shown to decrease the pain of labor, so we encourage our clients to take advantage of our spacious showers and bathtubs. We also have birth balls, birth stools,
rebozos and yoga slings. These aids, along with changing positions often helps you manage labor naturally. 

5

Can I eat and drink during labor?

YES
We have a small kitchen and you have access to the refrigerator, microwave and tea kettle. You are welcome to bring your own snacks. We have light non-perishable nourishment on hand. You are welcome to bring whatever you wish or DoorDash to the Birth Suite.
