Debbie Pettifor

Midwife/Sonographer

Hi I am Debbie I obtained a BSc honours degree in midwifery in 2004 from Coventry University where I practised as a midwife in all areas antenatal, postnatal and Labour ward at University Hospital Coventry.

In 2007 I completed a post graduate certificate in New Born Infant examination, I was part of the team that set up the examination clinic for newborns, I enjoyed this part of my role completing the babies examinations and supporting the new mums.

In 2009 I began my post graduation certificate in Obstetric Sonography at Birmingham University. I completed the course and am now qualified in all aspects of obstetric sonography that includes: Anomalies, Nuchals, all pregnancy and gynaecology scans.

In 2013 I joined tummy2mummy team and with this I undertook further training at Sheffield University to enhance my scanning skills.

In 2018 I completed an ultrasound course with The British Fertility Society in Follicle Tracking, Gynaecology and Early Pregnancy.
As a midwife I regularly keep updated with on going training in all aspects of midwifery and sonography, recently completing revalidation for my midwifery registration.

I love working with team Tummy2mummy supporting our mums, dads and babies. It is a pleasure sharing the journey with you all, especially seeing some of you with your next pregnancies. 

My family have always been supportive of my career, I have 4 children with my husband Dave – Siobhan, Phoebe, Rhianne and Joel. I am blessed with 2 beautiful grandchildren, Isla and Rafe.

I look forward to supporting you through your pregnancies.
