Bringing a baby into your family is often a joyful occasion! Whether you’re a first-time parent or already experienced, it can also 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 you with the most up-to-date clinical care, equip you with information and strategies for this transition, establish a deep connection with your baby, and reveal your innate skills.
I continue to monitor our community health situation, and the spread of Coronavirus/COVID-19. At this time, masks are still required for all office visits and classes. As always, I am working to provide the most current information and research.
Please see more about my policies and protocols here, and don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions!
The health of our families – both yours and mine – is my priority.
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 center your experience.
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.
