Meet our Practitioner
I’m Marissa. I have had the honor of supporting parents for the past 10 years as a Birth Doula, Postpartum Doula, Childbirth Educator and Prenatal/Postnatal Yoga Instructor in the Truckee/Tahoe area. My Doula style is loving, compassionate, understanding, grounding, calming and dynamic. I help people prepare for the birth of their dreams by providing education, information, practices and resources. I believe with the proper care, support, love and time that parents can have happier experiences of pregnancy, birth and postpartum. I strive to help parents understand their options, how to make decisions and how to find solutions in the moment to achieve a positive empowered birth.
I like to help partners and fathers be the hero by helping them understand how to best support the birthing person. The Mother and the partner deserve the best caregiving possible so they can focus on the work of birth and becoming a parent. To me, being a Doula is intuitive and having a special talent for reading the scene and doing what’s best and most helpful in the moment to positively influence their experience.
