Doula Services

My Story

My name is Marisa Faas and I live in Upper Bucks County with my husband and two daughters. I have completed training and am now working towards certification through DONA International.  Becoming a doula is something I had been giving serious thought to for several years after spending a great deal of time reading and listening to the birth experiences of other women.  It wasn't until the birth of my second daughter that I really began to revisit and question my first birth experience.  My only concern at that time was the health of my baby and having made it through what I had envisioned would be a wonderful labor and birth, but which in reality had been the opposite.  Through doing birth work as a doula, it is my goal to inform, empower and support you.  I am honored to be invited along on this transformative journey.
