Labor Support and breastfeeding has always been a part of Debra’s life. Going back 35+ years to when her own mother supported her best friend in labor and then, spanning to about 15 years ago when one of her sisters began her journey as a Labor Doula. The stories were always interesting to her, but it was when, with the 35+ hour homebirth of her son almost 7 years ago that she experienced firsthand the benefits of labor support. Both of her sisters were present for the duration of that time and because of the way that support felt, that is what gravitated her to this kind of work. They believed in her and she, without a doubt, felt it.

Debra is a CAPPA certified Labor Doula and will be a certified Postpartum Doula and Bereavement Doula by early 2016. Debra has been married for 8 years and has one son, Everett. Having a child is what she refers to as “the best thing I have ever done in my life”.

“It takes a village” is one of her favorite quotes.

I was lucky enough to have Tiffany’s support for the births of all three of my babies, and I can honestly say that I could not have had the amazing birth experiences that I did without her. All three of my births were birth center/home births with long labors, and she was with me every step of the way. Tiffany is incredibly intuitive to a laboring mother and always knows exactly what is needed, whether it is gentle guidance through contractions, back massage, or soothing essential oils. It was an amazing experience to be at home in such a relaxing environment, where we could bond and nurse with our new baby without any interruption. It was wonderful to have the older siblings come in shortly after the birth and enjoy those precious moments together as a family. I feel incredibly blessed to have had such an amazing experience with all three births, and so grateful for all of Tiffany’s support.
