What past retreat attendees have said...

Debra’s retreat in Ocean Grove was truly a magical experience! The lessons taught were valuable and will surely influence both my doula practice and personal life. Debra was incredible!!! Her ability to share knowledge and love is just the best! She created such a fun and open atmosphere and her teaching skills are the best I’ve ever seen! I can’t say enough great things about the Debra, the Ocean Grove retreat and the training!! Thank you!

- Sami

I loved the retreat center! I felt comfortable and welcome there, the food provided was delicious and filling, and the location was beautiful. Fully enjoyed everything.

- Robin

The retreat was such a calm space that felt absolutely safe and welcoming. The location and space couldn't be more perfect.

- Melissa

Debra's retreat has been a defining moment in my life. Not only were the connections with the other women taking the course profound, but the way everyone was so supportive, maternal and open from the moment we met. The extensive amount of information Debra shared, the hands on guidance and and input from guests and participants [melded] together to form lasting knowledge for me. I am grateful for the experience.

Hands on Comfort Practices with Alejandra Lozano

For the first time in person, our very own social media maven, Alejandra Lozano, an autonomous midwife, will join us to teach advanced comfort techniques. 

Pulling from her years of training in traditional birth practices and teaching rebozo and comfort techniques to hundreds of doulas, Ale provides both practical and pleasurable comfort techniques for birth practitioners to learn and understand. 

"I absolutely enjoyed every single minute of it. Every skill and new knowledge I learnt will be super useful for my childbirth classes and as a doula I believe they can achieve a richer
and more enjoyable/orgasmic experience in their birth. Thank you for being such a great teacher!"

- Sasha

I’m Ale!, mother of 12-year-old Mariano, Midwife, Doula and Childbirth Educator.  My journey in Midwifery began during my pregnancy and continues to this day. I was born in Monterrey, México. I had an intense and beautiful water birth at home accompanied by midwives. I have traveled several states of Mexico with my son creating my own learning path in Midwifery, trying to find a balance between the practices of professional midwifery and the wisdom of traditional medicine.

I started my apprenticeship next to my Midwife who became my Mentor and with whom I accompanied births in Monterrey, Nuevo León, later I moved to San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas where I studied a Diploma in Midwifery and also accompanied births in hospital and at home, at the same time doing volunteer work in the Movement of Traditional Midwives. Later I traveled to Tulum, Quintana Roo and Pachuca, Hidalgo and collaborated with other Midwives and birth centers.

I had the opportunity to learn during my travelings and from so many loved midwives and friends, from the use of medicinal plants, flowers, sobada maya, herbal baths and the use of the rebozo, elements that I consider very important and necessary to offer a loving and deep accompaniment. Always supporting women to find themselves and become their own guides on the path of transformation that motherhood brings.

I currently work as an independent autonomous Midwife and in collaboration with other colleagues and Birth Centers. I accompany women during their pregnancies, childbirth, postpartum and their processes of female sexuality.
