Debbie Perry, CPM

Debbie PerryI went to nursing school and worked in ICU, Labor and Delivery, taught Childbirth Classes, and volunteered at a Pregnancy Help Center for years. I then apprenticed for 3 years with a Certified Nurse Midwife, Joyce Daniel, who had been doing homebirth for 18 years. I began my homebirth practice in 1989 and since then have become a Certified Professional Midwife. I was licensed in Texas from 1993 until now and currently work in Missouri and Kansas where licensure is unavailable. I do, however, maintain all the requirements for my CPM, including Neonatal Resuscitation Certification, CPR, continuing education hours and quarterly peer review.

Philosophy

I believe that childbirth is a normal, natural event ordained by God which left to nature will proceed to an uncomplicated end in most cases. I believe the midwife's role is to assist the birthing couple in a journey through pregnancy, labor and birth by monitoring the process. I believe that childbirth is a family centered event and the midwife's role is to enhance, not usurp the family's unity or the father's authority. Except where there is an issue concerning the safety of the mother or child, I believe the parents should have the experience they desire and I encourage specific requests regarding the birth experience.
