Doula is an ancient Greek word meaning“woman who serves”. In modern language, it is used to define someone who assists a mother and her partner in the birthing process by providing non-medical emotional and physical support before, during and after childbirth.
The term “Acupuncture Doula” was coined by Deborah Warsahuer to describe precisely the services that she provides.
As an acupuncture doula, Deborah uses her skills and experience as a practitioner of Chinese medicine and birth worker to assist couples in all aspects of reproduction and includes fertility, pregnancy, birthing preparation, labor and delivery and post-partum. This is achieved through all modalities of the acupuncturist and may include traditional doula services as well.

I can't thank Deborah enough for helping me with chronic migraines. I had suffered for many years and they completely cleared up within 8 visits!
Acupuncture saved me when I was expecting my first baby. I was nauseous and had back pain for most of the pregnancy and Deborah kept it at bay with her magic needles! I am forever grateful for her caring touch.
Whether seeking acupuncture for pain relief, fertility, pregnancy or post partum issues, or just to balance energy and feel great, finding the perfect match in a practitioner is essential. Complimenting a pregnancy and birth experience with the services of a doula has become a popular and much appreciated adjunct to either hospital, birthing center or home deliveries. Combining acupuncture and doula services creates a life long memorable experience!
Acupuncture is the ancient art of treating the whole body in order to achieve balance for optimal health. Many symptoms, diseases and syndromes are treated using acupuncture. Oriental medicine comprises acupuncture, herbal medicines, massage (called Tui Na), nutrition and lifestyle counseling. Many acupuncturists also practice some form of functional medicine using nutritional supplements. Every aspect of a patient’s medical history is examined and many symptoms or complaints are taken into consideration even when it does not make sense to the lay person! Treating the whole body and ALL symptoms leads to an overall healthier body and can stop the disease process from starting.
Some patients may experience dramatic results after their first acupuncture treatment with immediate total or partial relief of their ailments. At the same time, other patients might not experience any relief until later on into their treatments. This is a normal part of the process to healing.
