Postpartum Daytime Doula

Doulas provide education, nonjudgmental support and companionship, and assist with newborn care and family adjustment. Some Doulas may also help with meal preparation and light household tasks so mom and family can rest. Postpartum doulas offer evidence-based information on infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from birth, and infant soothing and coping skills.

In the middle of this process looking for a doula, thank God we found Lina, who with her professionalism, disposition and patience guided us from scratch to enter this wonderful world of parenthood, what to buy, how to prepare for childbirth, breastfeeding, newborn care and everything necessary for this new task of parenting.

Olivia is a professional with a personal touch and is truly amazing at creating a sacred space to share the intimate experience of birth. She provided support, information, and a whole lot of compassion during my journey of pregnancy and giving birth for the first time. As I experienced challenges of a high-risk birth defect, she was by our side reminding me how resilient and capable a baby + I are. When I was overwhelmed with the situation she would remain calm and help me to regain ground to advocate and seek answers. When it came time for my daughter to arrive, there was a shelter in place and extreme restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. She was flexible and found a way to support my birth virtually, including thoroughly creating a toolkit and preparing the father of my baby over video call before the hospital. An authentic and genuine doula, I sincerely recommend her services. ~Annabelle

We are so thankful for Justine and Olivia and had the honor of having them as our birth doulas. Going through pregnancy for the first time during a pandemic was a bit stressful at times. It was such a relief to know that we had Olivia and Justine there to support and advocate for us whether that was through text, home visits, or by our side at the hospital. Because of COVID-19, we were only able to have one doula at the hospital. I had a very long labor and I don’t know what we would have done without Justine there. She was able to give Shawn a break to sleep and she stayed up with me the whole night. She also made an amazing partner with the nurse as they worked together to find new positions to get my labor progressing. It was such an amazing and empowering experience and I’m so happy Justine was there to help us through it. We’re looking forward to hopefully having Justine and Olivia as our doulas again and we are grateful to have shared this journey with them

As soon-to-be first time parents, we did all we could to read about pregnancy and the birth process but nothing comes close to having a Doula like Brianna to ask questions and have discussions with. Her genuine humor coupled with knowledge and passion made her a perfect fit for what we were looking for. Ultimately, it’s hard to imagine the birth of our daughter without Brianna’s support. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for that support and guidance.

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.

Olivia is a professional with a personal touch and is truly amazing at creating a sacred space to share the intimate experience of birth. She provided support, information, and a whole lot of compassion during my journey of pregnancy and giving birth for the first time. As I experienced challenges of a high-risk birth defect, she was by our side reminding me how resilient and capable a baby + I are. When I was overwhelmed with the situation she would remain calm and help me to regain ground to advocate and seek answers. When it came time for my daughter to arrive, there was a shelter in place and extreme restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. She was flexible and found a way to support my birth virtually, including thoroughly creating a toolkit and preparing the father of my baby over video call before the hospital. An authentic and genuine doula, I sincerely recommend her services. ~Annabelle

We are so thankful for Justine and Olivia and had the honor of having them as our birth doulas. Going through pregnancy for the first time during a pandemic was a bit stressful at times. It was such a relief to know that we had Olivia and Justine there to support and advocate for us whether that was through text, home visits, or by our side at the hospital. Because of COVID-19, we were only able to have one doula at the hospital. I had a very long labor and I don’t know what we would have done without Justine there. She was able to give Shawn a break to sleep and she stayed up with me the whole night. She also made an amazing partner with the nurse as they worked together to find new positions to get my labor progressing. It was such an amazing and empowering experience and I’m so happy Justine was there to help us through it. We’re looking forward to hopefully having Justine and Olivia as our doulas again and we are grateful to have shared this journey with them

Olivia is a professional with a personal touch and is truly amazing at creating a sacred space to share the intimate experience of birth. She provided support, information, and a whole lot of compassion during my journey of pregnancy and giving birth for the first time. As I experienced challenges of a high-risk birth defect, she was by our side reminding me how resilient and capable a baby + I are. When I was overwhelmed with the situation she would remain calm and help me to regain ground to advocate and seek answers. When it came time for my daughter to arrive, there was a shelter in place and extreme restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. She was flexible and found a way to support my birth virtually, including thoroughly creating a toolkit and preparing the father of my baby over video call before the hospital. An authentic and genuine doula, I sincerely recommend her services. ~Annabelle

We are so thankful for Justine and Olivia and had the honor of having them as our birth doulas. Going through pregnancy for the first time during a pandemic was a bit stressful at times. It was such a relief to know that we had Olivia and Justine there to support and advocate for us whether that was through text, home visits, or by our side at the hospital. Because of COVID-19, we were only able to have one doula at the hospital. I had a very long labor and I don’t know what we would have done without Justine there. She was able to give Shawn a break to sleep and she stayed up with me the whole night. She also made an amazing partner with the nurse as they worked together to find new positions to get my labor progressing. It was such an amazing and empowering experience and I’m so happy Justine was there to help us through it. We’re looking forward to hopefully having Justine and Olivia as our doulas again and we are grateful to have shared this journey with them

Olivia is a professional with a personal touch and is truly amazing at creating a sacred space to share the intimate experience of birth. She provided support, information, and a whole lot of compassion during my journey of pregnancy and giving birth for the first time. As I experienced challenges of a high-risk birth defect, she was by our side reminding me how resilient and capable a baby + I are. When I was overwhelmed with the situation she would remain calm and help me to regain ground to advocate and seek answers. When it came time for my daughter to arrive, there was a shelter in place and extreme restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. She was flexible and found a way to support my birth virtually, including thoroughly creating a toolkit and preparing the father of my baby over video call before the hospital. An authentic and genuine doula, I sincerely recommend her services. ~Annabelle

We are so thankful for Justine and Olivia and had the honor of having them as our birth doulas. Going through pregnancy for the first time during a pandemic was a bit stressful at times. It was such a relief to know that we had Olivia and Justine there to support and advocate for us whether that was through text, home visits, or by our side at the hospital. Because of COVID-19, we were only able to have one doula at the hospital. I had a very long labor and I don’t know what we would have done without Justine there. She was able to give Shawn a break to sleep and she stayed up with me the whole night. She also made an amazing partner with the nurse as they worked together to find new positions to get my labor progressing. It was such an amazing and empowering experience and I’m so happy Justine was there to help us through it. We’re looking forward to hopefully having Justine and Olivia as our doulas again and we are grateful to have shared this journey with them

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.

Testimonial
Class was fantastic! It was a new sequence which I appreciated... Lacey has a very calming voice, and incorporated a nice mixture of cues, meditation, and assists. The last bit during savasana was awesome!" "I've never done yoga before this class, and Lacey set the bar extremely high for future teachers. I enjoyed the blend of spirituality + practice. Lacey guided beginners + experienced students really well, and I never felt lost through the entire class.

Testimonial
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.

Testimonial
Tatielle is warm and nurturing to babies, children, and parents. She is thoughtful and conscientious when it comes to the "little" things that actually make a big difference in family life. She interacts with babies with an unfussy reverence - a calm, capable attitude that forges a connection and trust almost immediately.

Testimonial
Natia is a very nurturing and compassionate doula. She is knowledgeable in her field and if she is unfamiliar with something she goes above and beyond to find out for you. I highly recommend Natia as a doula. She was there for my family and I when we needed it most. - Laura Zamora
