Trained Birth and Certified Postpartum Doula

Clarissa

Michael

Hi! I am a Certified Postpartum Doula and Trained Birth Doula. As a doula, my role is to support and care for a family with or expecting a newborn(s) by teaching baby-related skills (bathing, feeding, breastfeeding, etc.) and emotionally supporting the parents and infant(s). Doula work includes overnight work too where I help care for baby(ies) so parents can rest and recover all while providing education as desired. I also run errands, cook, and do some light housework. Birth doula services consist of my providing prenatal visits, attending the labor/birth, and some postpartum visits, all while providing physical, emotional, and educational support to the birthing person.

We used Clarissa's services once our little miracle baby came home from the NICU. We were first time parents and I was recovering from horrible pregnancy complications. She was absolutely incredible. She answered every question with proficiency and knowledge and made me so so comfortable. Bonus: being able to sleep at night was CRUCIAL for my sanity. I didn't have to worry that my baby was safe because I knew she was in great hands. Doulas are incredible and I would highly recommend Clarissa's services! To this day, we use the tips and tricks she taught us to keep a very happy little household.

Work experience

I have been working with babies for the last 16 years, and was a live-in nanny for twin infants before I became a Doula. I am infant and adult CPR Certified and have previous experience as a Certified Nursing Assistant working at a hospital for a year. My role is non-medical but I do have a medical background. I also volunteered in the NICU as a nursing volunteer at UCLA Ronald Reagan Hospital where I worked with newborn and premature babies. I am trained in infant massage and am in the process of completing my Lactation Education Counselor training, which I hope will be a stepping stone to becoming an IBCLC in the future.
