Birth Assistant/Student Midwife
Carissa is a wife, mother and student midwife from McCall, Idaho. She loves to create. She loves nature. And she adores being the mama of her two precious girls.
As a birth doula and a childbirth educator she is no stranger to the birth world. She knows that birth brings its own experiences for each woman and it is her desire to walk alongside women with support, knowledge and encouragement as they and their families bring a new child into the world.
Her own pregnancies and births showed her the strength and healing that can come from this season of life as well the struggles that can arise. Her international travels burdened her for the physical needs around the world. The combination of the two led her down the path of midwifery and she has loved every step of the journey.
If she had any free time she would love to make things – music, wood chips, quilts, yummy food… But, for now she is excited to be immersed in her studies and her dream is to one day be a midwife for women both locally and internationally.
