Deb Woolley, CNM,, PhD, MPH, LCCE, FACCE has been working in the health care of childbearing women since 1975. She began as an RN on nights in L&D in Austin, TX -- Hook 'em, Horns! During graduate school in Austin she completed her certification as a Lamaze instructor. After graduation as a Clinical Specialist in OB, she moved to Chicago where she taught OB nursing. During that time, she completed a course of study at the University of Illinois that brought her both certification as a nurse-midwife and a PhD with a special interest in the second stage of labor. Since that time she has both practiced as a nurse-midwife and offered childbirth education. She was privileged to serve as the Director of the Nurse-Midwifery Programs at both the University of Colorado at Denver and the University of Illinois at Chicago. She has worked in hospitals, and in both in-hospital and out-of-hospital birth centers across the US. She has experience with water births at several facilities. Personally, she shares a home in California with her 90 year old Mom. She also has two amazing grown daughters, the first of whom assisted at the home birth of the second. Beloved daughter #1 is a wife, genius insurance adjuster, awe-inspiring student of psychology and mother of an antisocial, green-eyed cat. Beloved daughter #2 is a wife and marvelous Mom who has made Deb a grandmother of two amazing women-to-be, the first a 5 year old ballerina and the second a 3 year old mermaid in training. A feminist since before she knew the word, Deb continues her lifelong pursuit of education and activism that will improve the health of childbearing women and their families.
