Debra has a background in nursing and graduated from the London College of Acupuncture in 1989. Returning to New Zealand she established a private practice specialising in pregnancy and women’s health care.

She began specifically developing and teaching acupuncture courses to midwives in 1997. This led to the publication of articles on the use of acupuncture and acupressure in obstetric practice in 1999 and her book “The Essential Guide to Acupuncture in Pregnancy & Childbirth” in 2006, with subsequent translations into German and French. Debra completed her PhD on the use of acupuncture in threatened miscarriage in 2014 through the University of Western Sydney and is currently the Director of Postgraduate Programmes for an online Masters course through New Zealand School Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. She is also a clinical supervisor at a hospital antenatal acupuncture clinic in Wellington, New Zealand, and lectures internationally on the use of acupuncture in obstetric care.
