About Clarissa

I’m a Midwest born girl, from Kansas City, Missouri. I’m a wife, dog mom, and a mother of two children, and grandmother. I’m also a foster mommy. I was a teen mother, having my son at age 17. I’m a herbal tea lover, bookworm, and enjoy fun road trips! I have over two decades of experience as a birth worker. I mentor future Doulas for HMHBGA, and facilitate virtual postpartum classes; and peer support for teen expectant and postpartum families through Pickles & Ice Cream Georgia. I’m a graduate of the 2018-2019 Certified Childbirth Educator Cohort through HMHBGA, ICEA. Furthermore, I participate in community education and outreach; volunteering as a birth worker. Lastly, I recently hosted my first diaper drive and donated to 50 pregnant and postpartum families from marginalized communities.

Favorite quote about motherhood:

“The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.”
