"The experience I had with Debra made the entire birth an amazing and unforgettable experience." Carrie Ann Lawshe
I am often asked about my philosophy or approach to labor, birth and parenting. I know that our bodies are exquisitely designed to grow, nurture and birth babies. I know that, given enough information, you will make decisions that are best for you, your partner and your baby. It is my wish that through our work together you will come to trust your heart and instincts and make choices based on your inner "knowing". It is not my place or intention to tell you how to birth or parent. My goal is to provide you with well-rounded and research based information so you understand the pros and cons of any choices you make. I will support your decisions 100%.

The fee for my services is $1500. I am happy to work with payment plans. Click here to read about how doulas set their fees.
"At first I was so-so on the idea (of a doula) because it seemed kind of expensive but from the first visit I felt *way* better about the birth and was totally sold on doulas. Debra really helped K with her worries before the birth. She helped a ton during the birth-having an extra helper was really nice and it gave me a chance to rest before the final few hours. Since the birth she's come over to see how we're doing and help with breastfeeding troubles. Overall, it's probably the best money we've ever spent." J & K
