It is with great pleasure to recommend Carissa Reed as a Doula. Carissa was an integral part of my pregnancy, birth and postpartum experience with my son.
Throughout my pregnancy Carissa was in consistent contact. She was always checking up on me and was always there to chat when I needed her. When I experienced any sort of challenge she was quick to provide support. If she was unfamiliar with something she would research and share her findings with me. Aside from the physical challenges that pregnancy sometimes presents, Carissa was also diligent about checking in on how I felt mentally.
The birth of my son was Carissa's first birth experience as a Doula. I woke up around 12:30am knowing it was time to head to the hospital. We got to the hospital around 12:50am and my son, Leo entered the world within an hour. The birthing experience was incredibly fast and somewhat intense but Carissa remained calm and helpful the entire way through. After birth, Carissa praised my strength and was immediately planning how to help me next.
When we were released from the hospital, Carissa stayed with us another week to help with the baby, my daughter, the house chores, shopping and meals.
Carissa's approach to being a Doula comes from a place of genuine passion to help and stand up for women of all backgrounds, and an eagerness to educate herself and others while also motivating women to realize their personal strengths and capabilities. She listens, she cares, she takes initiative and she brings light to anyone's path she crosses. She is an outstanding person who has so much to offer. I feel like I'll never be able to thank her enough for what she did for my family and I. However, I take peace in knowing that she did it because she truly cares.
Any woman considering getting a Doula should highly consider selecting Carissa Reed, you will never be disappointed.
