Questions. All parents have questions. It doesn’t matter if you are having baby #1 or baby #8… the questions are a given in this crazy journey called parenthood. We are fortunate to have a variety of resources available to us in the Dayton area who are here to help us answer those questions. This guide is designed to hopefully get you started on the right path towards accessing the resources you need in pregnancy and beyond.

“Tender Beginnings was such a wonderful resource throughout my very stressful pregnancy. I faced an unusual number of challenges with a high risk pregnancy, and choosing to change care providers late in the game (35 weeks!) Kate supported my husband and me each step of the way, offering guidance, resources, and most importantly, reassurance. She helped us navigate territory that was foreign to us, and helped us feel excited, in spite of a lot of uncertainty.”
Birth Doula Services & Childbirth Classes
Birth is not just about making babies…
My philosophy on birth and mothering is that women who surround themselves with caring, trusted supporters become mothers who are excited and transformed by their amazing journey. Your spouse or partner will never be left out but will be respected and valued for the integral role they play at birth.
As a perinatal professional, my philosophy is that giving birth is a normal physiologic event in a woman’s life. Research has proven the benefits of professional labor support, and I believe everyone should have access to a doula during their pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. As a doula, I am very committed to helping women achieve a positive, informed, and powerful birth and parenting experience.
“I could never thank you enough for everything you did for us. You do have a 6th sense when it comes to labor and birth. We keep saying again and again how glad we are that we hired you.”

Fully Alive Chiropractic
Dr. Siebenaller loves to work with pregnant women and kids in order to help them live healthy, more abundant lives. He believes the key to living a healthy life is starting with a good foundation. This is why he feels it is important to aid women throughout pregnancy, as research shows babies are influenced throughout their life by what happens in the womb. Studies have shown that chiropractic care throughout a pregnancy can help not only with pain, but also with delivery time, reduced rates of c-section, increased likelihood of carrying the pregnancy full term, proper baby positioning, as well as many other benefits! Dr. Siebenaller also enjoys working with kids in order to help prevent them from developing health problems as they grow up.
