Bringing a baby into your family can be an enormously joyful occasion! Whether you’re a first-time parent or already experienced, it tends to be a time of intense – and often unanticipated – emotions and events as life with a new little person shifts routines, relationships, and expectations. Even if you felt prepared before baby’s arrival, you may still feel unsure, stressed, isolated, and/or anxious – this is common.
Navigating these complex new experiences can feel difficult, and surrounding yourself with support is essential. As International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), TummyTime!™ Method Professional, Holistic Sleep Coach, and Trained Babywearing Consultant with more than a decade of experience helping families, it’s my mission to provide the most up-to-date clinical care, and equip parents with information and strategies for this transition to reveal their innate skills. I look forward to meeting you!
As we are experiencing an unprecedented health situation with the spread of Coronavirus/COVID-19, supporting families with feeding difficulties has become even more important than ever. I am open for business, and accepting new clients. As always, I am working to provide the most current information and research.
The health of our families – both yours and mine – is my top priority!
To align with current health precautions, I have updated my practice model to exclusively offer video telehealth visits for all consults, classes, and groups.
I provide outstanding clinical care without a typical clinical setting.
Easy to locate and with quick access to freeways and major streets, my office has calm and cozy spaces that are designed to minimize distractions and center your experience.
I look forward to your visit when in-person appointments resume!
I highly recommend Marissa to all first time moms who want to breastfeed— even if you don’t *think* you have a problem, I guarantee you she has dozens of “life hacks” make your breastfeeding journey easier.
My partner completely dreaded the idea of going to this visit because of a previous experience, but left feeling so involved and connected. We are so grateful for your support of our whole family, Marissa!
Fast forward 6 months.....he used to be in the 11% and now he's in the 52%. BF is going well. I just wanted to say thank you for being so kind, patient, gentle, and understanding.
