Testimonial for Marissa Hathaway, MPH, CD(DONA), CBE

Our family feels so lucky to have connected with Marissa as our birth doula! We are incredibly grateful for her kindness and sincere care throughout the pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period. Marissa is easy to talk to and exudes warmth and empathy; she has a true talent to make you feel empowered and informed. 

Prior to the birth, her questions and recommendations helped our family feel more prepared for our second child. I am really grateful for her foresight and thoughtfulness as we navigated this change in family dynamics.

It was always a real comfort to talk to Marissa. My emotions sometimes felt more intense during the pregnancy, and Marissa was a real source of calm.

On the day of our daughter's birth, my husband was unexpectedly unable to join me in the hospital due to an acute illness. It was hard being apart, but seeing Marissa walk into the birthing room was a joy! She supported me when my other half could not physically be there. It’s hard to put into words how grateful both my husband and I felt to have her in the room. She helped me change positions and move in ways that made this labor easier than with my first child. She also was able to make my husband feel like he was an active participant via video chat. Marissa also captured photographs of our daughter’s birth, thereby making the memories feel really permanent to both of us--even if we weren’t physically in the same room together. She also took pictures of our family of four in the postpartum period. Her photos are incredibly beautiful, and we truly treasure them! 

Marissa is an amazing advocate, warm and kind listener, and expert doula. We would choose her again every time in a heartbeat! Thanks, Marissa, for all your care for our family! You made a real difference in our lives!
