Learn about Paula Thacker

Care Philosophy

It is important to me that women feel empowered in the process of making informed healthcare decisions for themselves. Choices and options are important in every aspect of life, and health care should be included. It is vital that women recieve sound, reliable information about the choices and options available to them. When all is available for consideration, it then becomes possible to reach good decisions about their own, individual health care.

Patient Comments (2)
South Jordan, UT |
Paula did not help me feel confident in my ability to birth naturally. She did not do a very good job of informing a first time mom. She seemed forgetful and absent minded at times. When I went into labor the On Call Midwife (Julie Jones) told me I should wait to go to the hospital, when my contractions were 3-4 minutes apart. I ignored this and was dialated to a 4 upon arrival. They sent me home and 1.5 hours lated I was ready to push. No midwife came, and Paula didn't arrive in time to deliver

Paula takes the time to hear my concerns and questions, no matter how trivial they may be, and answers them diligently. I never am made to feel like she's in a hurry to get to the next patient, and she investigates any issues with my health thoroughly. When she heard I wanted to do a natural birth, she recommended Hypnobirthing to me! The only downside of a smaller practice is that I don't have access to talk to a nurse all the time for minor problems, but the on-call CNM always calls back.
