Dr. Deb Davies, DACM, L.Ac. is passionately following her calling to support families in a natural way throughout their fertility, pregnancy, birth, and postpartum journeys. Deb is a Doctor of Chinese Medicine, licensed acupuncturist, birth doula, an online educator & faculty at a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) University called Eastern School of Acupuncture & Traditional Medicine in New Jersey, and a best-selling author. She has spent over 20 years passionately following her mission of supporting women through fertility, pregnancy, birth, and postpartum care. She also empowers other licensed practitioners by teaching CEU classes online and in person. Over the course of her career, Deb has helped thousands of families in their childbirth journey at her clinic, PUSH San Diego. She has renowned expertise in helping families overcome fertility obstacles, support high-risk pregnancies, maintain healthy full-term pregnancies, prepare for optimal birth experiences, and recover optimally. Deb’s birth doula service provides support prenatally, during labor and birth with acupuncture, acupressure, and massage therapy, and is highly skilled in postpartum recovery care and optimizing C-section recovery time. She’s had the honor and privilege to share hundreds of births with families over the years supporting them with the TCM and birth doula knowledge. Deb brings a remarkable degree of empathy to her practice and teaching. Her first daughter, Mia Belle, was stillborn at term from an umbilical cord accident in March of 2001. Her second daughter, Lauryn, was born a year later. Both girls instill Deb’s work with an unparalleled degree of inspiration and passion. Even outside of Deb's work teaching & clinically at PUSH San Diego, Deb continues to follow her passion for integrative medicine. In 2006, she founded the Integrative Medical Discussion Group to bring together Eastern and Western medical students. She also served as the director of Alumni Services and Community Education at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego and as the Community Partnership Committee co-director of the Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of California, San Diego. She’s a former event coordinator and continuing education provider for licensed acupuncturists and was recognized as an Alumni Leader in the field of Chinese Medicine and Integrative Medicine from Pacific College of Health & Sciences in 2009 and again in 2019.
