Taught by certified instructors with decades of experience, our 4-week classes are held right here at the birth center. Learn about the birth process in a safe and relaxing environment.


Clinic Program

A new alternative for those seeking a minimized and cost-effective option. You still get the maternity care you need, but without all the extras of a private care program.

Parent Reviews

“For the first time ever I had a caregiver that delicately and wisely balanced listening to my desires for pregnancy and labor and also shared wisdom and guidance and care. Tesa truly trusts the process of birth in a way that I have never seen before in a caregiver.”

– Bethany Mulberry Herman

“We have used Tesa’s expertise for prenatal, birth, and postpartum services for both of my pregnancies. She was very knowledgable and believed in helping me reach my birth goals. When I asked for advice, she would give it and also give me resources to help my husband and I make informed decisions about care before delivery day came.”

– Joy Reynolds

“I went there yesterday for a mommy support group. I ended up getting a lot of information about childbirth and looking into getting a doula. The staff was so friendly and informative! Tesa & Patty were awesome!! I felt very welcomed and at ease.”

– Tijera Slack

“When a woman births, not only is a baby being born but so is a mother. How we treat her will affect how she feels about herself as a mother and as a parent. Be gentle. Be kind. Listen.”
— Ruth Ehrhardt
