My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Marisa. She was there for us the whole time and made sure to check in with me often to make sure I was doing ok, that the things going on were what I wanted. She always made sure I was comfortabel and made sure that I knew what was going on and explained to me why things were happening. It was nice to have the extra support so that my husband could run out and grab something to eat and go to the waiting room and to tell my parents their grandson arrived! I would recommend Marisa to anyone looking for a doula.

Marisa was a wonderful addition to our natural VBAC as planned! I couldn't be more happy with our experience and her support was worth far more than our agreed terms!!!

Marisa was such a huge help to me and my partner for the birth of our second child.  She helped me address some trauma left over from my first birth experience, guided me in creating a birth plan with lots of flexibility built around the complications of this pregnancy, and was a calming, supportive, loving, wise presence during the birth.  She has lots of techniques to aid in tolerating the pain of natural childbirth but she also was super supportive of whatever type of birth I wanted to have.  She is wonderfully professional and we would highly recommend her.
