Ask Mama Amy Episode 16: How to Have a Positive Birthing Experience with Dr. Deb Davies

“It’s my life’s work to help people have better births,” says Dr. Deb Davies, DACM, L.Ac. After losing her first daughter at 40 weeks, Deb understands the trauma that can occur in the birthing process. Through her experience, Deb brings a remarkable degree of empathy to her practice and teaching. Known as the birth geek, Deb has proudly helped thousands of families through their pregnancy and childbirth journeys. 

According to Deb, the best thing any pregnant woman can do is get educated. The United States is one of the few countries where medical doctors are preferred over midwives. Birthing in a hospital can be a good option, but it is important to know how each hospital operates before choosing where you want to deliver. If you spend the time learning about all of your options, you are more likely to have a positive experience.

Tune into this week’s episode of AskMamaAmy to learn more about the misconceptions regarding birth, the role of a doula, and the difference between a midwife and an OB, so you can make informed decisions and have a safe and happy birthing experience.


  • “I turned around the worst thing in my life and made it the best thing in my life. My career’s 100% focused around birth now.” (02:35-02:42)
  • “When women experience loss or difficulty conceiving, it’s really nice to help, share hope, and give them some more options.” (03:39-03:48)
  • “At this point, the United States average C section rate is 34%. So, one in three women are having major abdominal surgeries.” (10:14-10:24)
  • “In my experience, the women coming out of birth the happiest have midwives.” (10:54-10:58)
  • “The one thing that you need to do when you’re in labor is relax.” (14:14-14:18)
  • “It’s my life’s work to help people have better births and have better experiences.” (20:22-20:27)
  • “A strong mom is somebody who is empowered, educated, determined, and willing to go the extra mile for their child.” (20:55-21:05)
