|Hi! My name is Debi, and welcome to my web page! Please allow me to tell you a little bit about myself.
I am a 42-year-old mother of 5 and grandma of 2. I am happily married, and I live near San Diego, California, with my husband, second daughter, 2 cats, a ball python, and a bearded dragon.
I work as a security officer at the local hospital, and I am also a doula - a professional labor coach. I attend a local Christian church, and am a born-again Christian.
I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania, and I have lived in California for over 19 years (minus a 2-year break when I lived in Santa Cruz, CA).
I enjoy collecting teddy bears (especially Winnie the Pooh), reading, pets, church, pool, arts & crafts, and music. I would like to hear from any and all of you about any of these things.

I can direct you to various resources in your area that provide options for your birthing experience.
