Celeste Thomas CNM is currently seeing patients at the University of Utah clinics for well woman care, primary care of common health complaints, pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. She has been caring for women in all stages of life and "catching" babies since 2003. Her emphasis is on empowering women as shared partners in their health, and safeguarding the physiologic process of pregnancy and birth. As a member of the BirthCare HealthCare (BCHC) midwifery practice, Celeste's goal is to provide individualized attention and respectful care. BCHC nurse midwives have amazing statistics - such as an overall Cesarean Section rate of less than 10% annually for greater than 10 years, as compared to a national average of 33%. A less than 4% episiotomy rate and a very high success rate for Vaginal Birth after Cesarean (VBAC) deliveries.

So far everything has been good.

I think the world of Celeste and really trust her knowledge and judgement

May 27, 2016

I always show up to my prenatal appointments armed with lots of questions. Some midwives have tried to rush me a bit through my questions, but Celeste was WONDERFUL! It felt like she really cared about providing me with the information I was seeking and took the time to explain it all fully.

May 24, 2016

They have all been fantastic as well!

May 05, 2016

I loved my visit with Celeste Thomas. I felt like she is very capable at handling my particular pregnancy concerns.

April 21, 2016

the midwives are the best- no other health care provider has ever shown as much concern, remembered my wife, and just treated me as a whole person. even the accompanying student had better bed side manner than most health care providers. the midwives create simply THE best care, and celeste may just be the kindest among them.

February 10, 2016

Celeste is amazing!

January 07, 2016

Celeste was a joy to have an appointment with. She asked me a lot of questions about what I was planning for my birth and afterwards. I definitely felt a good connection with her.

November 03, 2015

I love Celeste!

August 26, 2015

Every midwife we have seen has been on top of any problems or concerns and makes sure we know and understand everything. They are always on top of their game and treat us like a friend more than a patient.

July 09, 2015

The girl in training tended to talk and give me information but wasn't as good about asking questions to see how I was doing with things like exercise. Celeste was better about asking and listening to where I was coming from as a patient and then giving advice which helped the healthcare feel more personalized even though she pretty much gave me the same advice/information.

June 26, 2015

Celeste is always wonderful. she treats me like family. The CNM student was awesome as well.

June 10, 2015

Celeste Thomas took the time needed for me to feel listened to and cared for. She has a very knowledgeable and caring demeanor.

May 20, 2015

Celeste is great! I love seeing her and have recommended that friends of mine look into seeing her too. She is always will to take the extra time to explain what's going on to me, and makes me feel like a valued patient.

May 01, 2015

I'm SO glad a friend referred me to Celeste! She's an amazing provider!

March 20, 2015

I love how Celeste is never rushed, and seems to love taking time to answer questions and provide information.

February 27, 2015

Celeste was absolutely fantastic. She answered all of my questions and lived up to her reputation (I got recommended to her from my former primary care provider, Tiffany Lundeen, who told me Celeste is an expert at IUD implantation.) Celeste helped me make an informed decision and implanted my IUD without incident or complication. I'd recommend her to any woman!

January 05, 2015

Celeste was amazing. She was friendly and concerned and she really took her time to talk with me about every aspect of my health. I was very pleased with my care with her.

January 02, 2015

Celeste is a wonderful provider. very knowledgeable and caring. I always feel comfortable in her presence.

January 02, 2015

Midwives for the WIN!

December 29, 2014

I would not want to have the experience of pregnancy with any other kind of health care provider. I am very grateful for the midwife program and am very pleased with my care.

November 13, 2014

I love seeing Celeste Thomas. Great experience with her today, as always!

November 13, 2014

I can't say enough good things about Celeste. She is one of the best care providers I have ever had. She is calm, confident, and caring. She is always willing to answer my questions. She was a strong advocate for me and my preferred health care choices, while always having my and my baby's safety and well-being the number 1 priority. I have supreme confidence in medical knowledge and decision making. She has always impressed me with her level of medical knowledge and familiarity with evidence based practice and research. I would recommend her to anyone.
