"The Birth Place"

     Deb Schneider has been employed as a paramedic for 14 years by the Anchorage Fire Department and has instructed firefighters and medics alike in emergency childbirth and pediatric care. Her teaching has helped to ‘normalize’ the thinking of emergency responders in their anticipation of birth occurring outside of a hospital. She has taught numerous classes all over the state in all aspects of emergency medicine. Her vast knowledge and experience have made her invaluable to her colleagues and to the women she loves to serve.
