Community Outreach
This FREE! Community Health & Wellness fair will be an educational and interactive event designed for outreach to provide basic preventive screening to the families in the surrounding community. The goal is to help individuals be healthier by seeking to engage the public in the conversation about common health issues and concerns that may effect the entire family.
Professional Development
Spinning Babies is an approach to optimize the physical relationship between the bodies of the mother and baby for the easing of childbirth. Spinning Babies is a new paradigm that takes clues from baby’s position and station for natural, physiological solutions. Try it in any birth setting, childbirth program, or pain management plan.

  • Align the uterus so baby can curl and enter the pelvis as a small, compact – and more active participant.
  • Release tight ligaments or muscles which may pull or twist may relieve pelvic pain now or discomfort during birth.
  • Support what’s loose in womb or pelvis with a pregnancy belt.
  • Open the pelvis to let baby move down during the birth process.
  • Share birth wisdom with parents and providers in ever deepening layers of understanding birth
