D.O.N.A. Certified Birth Doula, Certified Bradley Method® Natural Childbirth Educator
Deb's knowledge and passion for all things birth-related began with the natural childbirth of her firstborn, Rebecca, in 1990. Becca's birth inspired her to become a certified Bradley Method® Natural Childbirth Educator and spread the word about birth's amazing possibilities and power. Deb had a son, Willem, in 1997 and soon thereafter became a D.O.N.A.-certified Birth Doula. She's guided and encouraged many a mom/couple on their own unique birthing adventure both in the classroom and in the birthing room. Deb is also a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance, teacher of Calm Birth Meditation, Birth Photographer and professional Actress. She takes great pride in the way she can communicate and meet couples precisely where they are, then intelligently, sensitively and with good humor, guide them where they want to be.
"From the moment I took the plunge into the worlds of childbirthing and yoga, my life has been enlivened, empowered and enhanced. I am more aware, stronger, calmer, happier. And I love nothing more than sharing my knowing and my passion with my yoga students, preschool to senior, and my lovely birthing moms and dads. I inspire them as they inspire me. And so it goes...
