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:
Should not be managed or controlled (unless there's an emergency)
Is a primal/instinctual process
Is a transformative experience and requires wholistic preparation beforehand
trust, safety and surrender are imperative.
Should be mother led
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.
