Hello everyone, my name is Terrah Whitehair. My clans are Yucca Fruit Strung Out In A Line born for Bitter Water, my maternal grandfather's clan is Manygoats and my paternal grandfather's clan is Red Streak. This is what makes me a Navajo Woman. I grew up on the Navajo Reservation in Leupp, Arizona. I have been a longtime resident of Flagstaff and proud alumni of Coconino High School. Proud mom of two girls and one boy, all who were born here in Flagstaff. I have been a Medical Assistant for 15 years, currently attending Coconino Community College and will receive my Associates in PreHealth. I would love to work on continuing my education to pursue a nursing degree with a focus in women's health, labor and delivery. My children's birth is what has drawn me in to this career path, it is a beautiful experience. When not at work or school I keep busy spending time with my children, traveling after them and cheering them on at all their sporting events. I also enjoy trail running, hiking, being outdoors and traveling.
Dr. Elizabeth "Betsy" Decker, DC, CACCP
Acupuncturist and Massage Therapist
Tally Thomas, L.Ac, M.Ac.O.M, LMT
Betsy is a chiropractor with specialized training in prenatal, postpartum and pediatrics. She joins Flagstaff Birth and Women’s Center after having spent 13 years practicing in Boulder, CO and 5 years in Sitka, AK.
Betsy’s path to becoming a prenatal/pediatric chiropractor began when her sister experienced benefits from chiropractic care during her first pregnancy. Betsy attended all 3 of her sister’s births both as a sister and as a doula. After completing her undergraduate degree in Biology from SUNY Geneseo, she attended New York Chiropractic College and graduated with honors in 2000.
While practicing in Boulder, CO she received specialized post-graduate training and certification in prenatal, postpartum and pediatric care (CACCP) from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. This extensive training included specialized care and safe, gentle techniques for treating children, from newborns to teenagers. The prenatal training included techniques to help prepare the pelvis for labor and delivery, the Webster Technique, and the care of specific conditions or discomforts that can occur during pregnancy and post-partum. She also contributed research data that was published on the topic of the safety and efficacy of prenatal chiropractic care. She became trained as a doula and donated her time with a shelter for pregnant women, providing chiropractic care and doula support.
In 2018, Betsy’s husband's career as a National Park Ranger, moved them from Sitka, Alaska to Flagstaff, Arizona. They love the outdoor lifestyle and have enjoyed exploring all the surrounding beautiful places.
Betsy is excited to join Flagstaff Birth and Women’s Center’s team to provide collaborative wellness care to support families as they welcome their new addition.
Betsy can be reached directly for an appointment at 928-380-9789
