Marisa is so excited to help parents achieve the birth they want and feels the way to do that is through education. She has a strong passion for natural birth, breastfeeding, baby-wearing and homeschooling. After a less than desirable 27-hour hospital birth with her first child, she realizes how important preparation is to the birthing process. Thinking that she was prepared, she arrived at the hospital too early, eventually gave into the interventions and was stuck in the bed. Two epidurals later, she gave birth with forceps assistance. This led her to more education and the decision to have a homebirth with child number two. Her second birth was 6 hours and amazing! With vastly differing experiences at her two births she feels she has a unique take on birth and how education can really empower a couple to have an AMAZING birth!
