Karen B.

I hired my doula, Carrissa, so that I could be more prepared to not have an epidural. I have a low pain tolerance, so I needed help in other ways besides drugs. My doula was so supportive and I had an awesome experience during labor and delivery. My husband and I became closer as a couple because we worked together and our doula was there to help both of us together. Carrissa was very professional and easy to get along with. My doctor was happy and the experience was the best. I wish I had done all my labors this way after this very special experience. At least we got one great experience this way. I highly recommend a doula to everyone!

Carrissa is an amazing doula, she was there when I needed her throughout my entire pregnancy, her prenatal visits were informative and helpful.  She listened to all my wishes for my birth and gave me all the information I wanted or needed to make the best choice for me and my baby.   She was so supportive of all my decisions in every aspect of my birth and pregnancy. 

Durning Labor she was wonderful right there with me when I needed her Carrissa gave me such wonderful support and encouragement throughout the labor process.  Having Carrissa as my doula was exactly what I needed for the birth of my 3rd baby.  I would definitely choose Carrissa again if I were to do the same birth over again.
