Postpartum Care for Sanpete County
Marla Hicks began her midwifery career as a Registered Nurse assisting physicians attending home births. As a primary midwife, she has attended births in homes and birth centers and has assisted over 1,500 women in peacefully bringing their beautiful babies earthside. Marla now resides in Spring City where she maintains a specialty practice focusing on providing care to postpartum moms and babies.
Katherine Bothwell grew up watching Marla care for women, even attending some births with her mom both as a young child and later on as a sibling care provider for families. After having her own baby in 2014, Katherine saw the great need for care throughout the full postpartum period and was trained as a Postpartum Doula. She has since trained as a Placenta Encapsulator and Lactation Consultant in order to provide quality assistance to mothers and babies throughout the Fourth Trimester.
Our team is dedicated to serving your family and easing the transition of adding a new family member. We are available for home or office visits and will work hard to meet your individual needs.

“There is so much I could say about our experience with Katherine as our postpartum doula, I don’t quite know where to start. Essentially, she was our rock, our go-to person for the first weeks of our baby girl’s life. Her thorough postpartum knowledge and experience, kindness, patience, and fantastic humor got us through some very tough, yet beautiful moments. She was especially helpful with breastfeeding, baby wearing, cloth diapering, and taking care of household responsibilities so we could rest and cuddle with our newborn. As first time parents, her presence was invaluable!”
