Meet the Doulas
JASMINE SASSACK is a badass birth doula who will help you achieve the kick-ass, badass birth of your dreams! She is credentialed through ProDoula, and is also a certified childbirth educator through HypnoBirthing International. Jasmine believes birth should be a simple and beautiful process that every birthing person actually looks forward to! She is 41 years old and married to her husband of 12 years (who also happens to be an acupuncturist). Together they have two "homemade" children (one hospital birth with an epi, one home waterbirth). They also were foster parents for eight years and fostered 20 children and adopted four. If you've lost count: that's six kids in their family now. Plus several former foster kiddos who still come around quite often. How does she do it all? She's a badass woman who gets shit done. Just like you.

KARISSA McCALLUM, in addition to being a doula, is an acupuncturist, herbalist and essential oil educator. She uses all of this knowledge to support families prenatally, during labor and in the postpartum period. For as long as Karissa can remember, she has always been interested in pregnancy, birth and babies. While obtaining her Masters in Traditional Oriental Medicine, Karissa knew that she wanted to focus on women’s health and pediatrics. After having a beautiful, empowering home birth with her first daughter, Ilyanna, Karissa loved hearing about other women’s birthing experiences. Sadly, a good number of women described their births in disappointing ways, commenting that they didn’t feel like they had a voice, or that they had no understanding of what was happening during the process. Maybe they felt they were not given sufficient education or choices. This, among many other reasons, led to Karissa seeking out a DONA (Doulas of North America) doula training. Karissa is experienced with supporting families in both hospital and home births, and she's passionate about helping clients achieve whatever kind of birth they desire.
