Welcome To Great Expectations!
Hi, I’m Rebecca Williams, a certified nurse-midwife practicing in the Salt Lake area since 2004. I attend out-of-hospital births in both the home and birth suite setting because I believe women should have safe, wonderful choices regarding their birth experience.
The births I’ve shared with my families in Utah continue to amaze and humble me. Thank you to all the families who have trusted me with their births. I’m honored to be a part of such a fabulous milestone in your lives.
Women choose an out-of-hospital birth with a certified nurse-midwife because:
Birth Spot Availability
For those planning ahead: I will be on birth vacation mid October 2014 to mid November 2014 so I can attend my first birthday party with my 6 year old granddaughter.
In 2015 I will be taking a birth vacation in August so my husband and I can celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary.
I am booked from now through December 2014. Those with a due date in 2015 (or who tend to birth late) please let me know so we can plan those birthday parties.
If you would like to be placed on a wait list in case a space frees up for 2015, please e-mail me [Email address: rebecca #AT# greatexpectationsbc.com - replace #AT# with @ ] with your contact information and due date, and I will let you know if a birth spot becomes available. If you are already one of my clients or we have a prior connection, please give me a call and we will make special arrangements if possible.
Of the more than 625 labors I’ve managed in Utah, I’ve only had to transfer nineteen women during labor (none emergently) and five moms after the birth.
After 9 1/2 years in Utah I transferred my first baby to the hospital for a non-birth related reason after a lovely birth. I hope at least another 9 1/2 years go by before another little one needs transfered.
My maternal and fetal mortality rate is zero.
The national transfer rate for out-of-hospital births is around 10% for moms and 3% for babies so I’ve been very fortunate.
