Intuition, patience, knowledge, and an open mind are the foundation of my support for you. It is an honor to hold the space for families to have a positive birth experience. Being invited into a families’ world to share in the birthing process is such a privilege and should not be taken lightly.
Childbirth Education at Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital
This series was created to give you the tools needed to birth your baby your way, with a focus on providing your labor support partner the confidence needed to be a great guardian of the birth-space and a provider of calm, loving support.
Private Childbirth Classes
Debbie offers private classes for childbirth education, breastfeeding, and postpartum newborn care. They can be offered in your own home or in a private office in Nevada City.
Doulas provide continuous physical and emotional support with assistance in gathering information for women and their partners during the birth process.
As a doula, I accompany women in labor to help ensure a safe and satisfying birth experience. I am a non-clinical provider who will draw upon my knowledge and experience to provide you with the support needed to help you have the birth you choose.
A postpartum doula is a trained professional who understands the individualized needs of today’s families during the postpartum period. In many cultures the new mother is cared for throughout the postpartum period which can be up to 8 weeks. As a postpartum doula, I assess the needs that are most important to the mom on that specific day. It may include newborn and postpartum education, a warm meal, holding baby so mom can take a shower, a morning shift, an evening shift, or night shift.
