DONA and toLabor trained birth and labor doula and certified Birth Boot Camp Doula. Her doula path began as a volunteer with UCSD’s Hearts and Hands program after her son asked her to be his doula. This experience profoundly changed her life’s journey. She soon realized that she had a deep passion for supporting women and their partners on their birthing journey. She became a Certified Lactation Educator and Counselor (CLEC), HypnoBirthing Educator, Evidence Based Birth Instructor, Rebozo Instructor and recently took the CAPPA New Parent Educator training in her pursuit of providing the best possible support for her birthing couples. In addition, Debbe has vast experience with VBAC births and specializes in supporting these mothers and their partners.
Debbe has a passion for serving expecting families and her knowledge of both birth and lactation makes her an asset to every family she serves. When Debbe is not helping couples have amazing births or teaching classes, she loves hanging out with her husband, five cats, and three grandbaby boys…preferably at the beach!
Debbe is honored to be a part of the Birth Education Center’s teaching core. The Center’s mission to empower parents through education resonates with Debbe’s own passion to inform and support pregnant couples in having the most amazing birthing year experience possible. Her mission is to replace fear with knowledge, confidence, and calm. She looks forward to supporting each couple on their journey to parenthood.

Why I have Debbe on my team –
Oh Debbie! The doula with more certifications than any single birth worker in town! She is fueled with skill gathering and that translates into more gifts to the women we work with. Her life experience has given her a lot of stories to share and she can relate to absolutely everyone. Her sense of humor keeps a sense of lightness in her classes and it can deescalate any intense situation during a birth. She has a heart of gold and can be trusted with anything, especially in keeping a confidence.
