Being employed as a nanny until the day before she gave birth to her first son, helped Debbie prepare for her “life-changing” career as a doula. When her second child was a toddler she knew the time was right and she jumped in with two feet. Debbie immediately earned her labor and postpartum doula certification and founded Northeast Doulas in 2002. As a certified doula for over 15 years, she has watched the desire to have a doula grow, and in turn, has also seen the desire to become a doula explode. Keeping the impeccable reputation of Northeast Doulas in mind, Debbie leads by example by maintaining certification and pursuing on-going educational opportunities within the birth world.
