Alternative Birth Series is designed for families who are planning to give birth at home or at a birth center. These classes focus on natural birthing. These classes include an abundance of handouts, visual tool, hands on techniques for labor support, videos of pregnancy, labor & delivery. We also explore the processes of labor and delivery, along with preparation—both physical and emotional–for birth. We explain the importance of nutrition, educate you on your anatomy while pregnant, teach and practice techniques of labor & delivery positioning, labor support(doula), partner support, newborn care, breastfeeding along with postpartum care and support. These classes will also cover water birth options, positions and questions answered by a Midwife or Midwife assistant.

Unruh Chiropractic (Dr. Kelly Herta) Dr. Herta uses chiropractic care to improve the health and wellness in all areas of patient's lives, whether they are having problems with back pain or neck pain, or just want to start feeling better when they wake up in the morning. Dr. Herta takes a "whole person" approach in chiropractic care, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms.
Dr. Herta is Webster Technique Certified. Webster technique is a safe effective treatment for pregnant patients. Webster technique is a specific chiropractic technique that helps to reduce the effects of low back and pelvic pain and pelvic misalignment while pregnant. In turn this can allow for a more comfortable pregnancy and delivery. Dr. Herta has years of experience helping her pregnant patients decrease their symptoms and has found it to be one of her favorite populations to work with.
