PUAH…What’s It All About?
PUAH was a Hebrew midwife during the time of Moses. God was with her as she courageously served the women of her time. It is our prayer that He will be with us as we serve the women of our time.
PUAH stands for Parents United at Home. Yes, this is YOUR birth, and it is our goal to help you, as a couple, to have the kind of birth you desire…whether it be a water birth, an occasion for all your friends and family to be present, a completely private affair, or other desires…in the comfort of your own home.
PUAH is a birthing service for low-risk women. We want you to be in a safe enviroment for your birth. Feel free to contact us if you have questions concerning this.
PUAH team members use the Midwifery Model of Care. You are much more than another expectant mom on an appointment list. You are a person about whom we truly care! We want you to be able to experience the birth process with confidence, respect, and dignity with the least amount of interventions possible.
Who is Debbie?
Hello, I am Debbie Fulmer. I have been a CPM (Certified Professional Midwife) under NARM (North American Registry of Midwives) since 1999. I am located in Covington,GA, and provide midwifery services to women in the surrounding areas.
My first experience with birth was as a student nurse in 1974, when “twilight” analgesia was being used. The lack of dignity, bonding, awareness, and respect caused by the medications led me to the conclusion that ….there was a better way to birth! Thus, I began my life study of the birth process.
I first became a childbirth instructor and enjoyed teaching parents for 5 years. Labor and delivery was my next training spot for the next 10 years. (I also became certified in inpatient obstetrics during that time.) Twenty-eight years ago the Lord opened the way to become a homebirth midwife. The journey has not ended. I continue to research and take courses to enhance my knowledge and experience.
Family has always been extremely important to me. I describe myself as a wife, a mama, and a mamsie (grandma), and ALSO a midwife.I hope your experience in birth,wherever you birth, promotes togetherness and is a positive experience for you and your family.
