Birth Doula & Postpartum Doula
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.
“It takes a village” is one of her favorite quotes.
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”.
The Birth Foundation will create a more positive & nurturing physical, emotional and spiritual environment for expecting families by providing safe alternatives for childbirth. We will promote a more natural and holistic environment for childbirth and postpartum experiences.
The Birth Foundation
Birthing with Integrity, Respect, Trust and Honor
Creating this foundation is a dream come true. Offering support to families whether it be as a Midwife,Doula,Childbirth Educator or as a friend fills my soul. Every mother and family deserves to feel love, integrity, respect, trust and honor during her pregnancy, childbirth and beyond. This purpose has become a life-long journey filled with joy and determination to seek change. I'm so fortunate to be able to impact the lives of others, all while partnering with some of the most passionate, like minded driven women in our community.

Together we can make a change within our community!
In December 2015, Tiffany Gallo will be offering her services to a home birthing family that did not have the financial means to hire a midwife. Parental care, birth and postpartum services are donated free of cost for this family.
Birth Doula, Childbirth Educator, Essential Oil Specialist
Samantha is a proud mother to her son Russell, and a hardworking entrepreneur. She has dedicated the last five years to helping women anyway she can. Her journey to support pregnant women began like many doulas, with the birth of her son. After realizing the lack of information given to new and growing families, she felt she had to help others. She has since grown an amazing network of wonderful local business owners. Samantha know's that together we can move mountains.
Our organization is always welcoming volunteer Midwives, Doulas, Postpartum Doulas, Childbirth and Breastfeeding Educators.
