Hi, I'm Marisa 

I have been a birth worker for over 15 years. My life's mission is to aide family in achieving transformative birth experiences. My birth experience has been in a variety of settings such as:  hospitals, birth centers and home settings.  


My years of experience have left me with a few beliefs surrounding birth.  I believe Birth:

  1.  Should not be managed or controlled (unless there's an emergency)


  2.  Is a primal/instinctual process


  3.  Is a transformative experience and requires wholistic preparation beforehand


  4.   trust, safety and surrender are imperative.

  5. Should be mother led

  6. The environment we choose to birth in affects the birthing process.


Currently I teach childbirth education classes at Tourmaline Wellness Collective and I take private doula clients.  I believe that education is the best way to combat the fear and anxiety that can precede birth. I firmly believe that the best way to address each client’s needs is meet them where they are at.  Birth  is not a "one size fits all" experience and every family deserves a doula that can provide individualized education, and care.

"My husband and I had been going back and forth in regards to whether or not we should have a doula. We met Marisa and her passion for supporting and empowering families through the birth process was so genuine and sincere that within moments of meeting her I KNEW we needed to have her at our birth.

As a first time mother I was scared of the unknown. Marisa shared resources, videos, love and support before our daughter’s birth.  She held my heart and strengthened my mind through labor. She gave my husband the strength and confidence to give me that same support. She empowered us as a couple which led to the most beautiful beginning of our family. We couldn’t have done it without her and I will be forever grateful. To this day she continues to check in with us and she will always be a part of our family!" -Elisa (for more review check out "Testimonials" section)
