Birth Doula (DONA)
Postpartum Doula (DONA)
My name is Kassy. I am a wife, a mother of two, a photographer, and a doula.
I have lived all of my life in the Fresno/Clovis area. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Eric for 10 years and we have been blessed with two children.
I knew that I always wanted to support families as they welcome their babies. I became a CMA (certified Medical Assistant) and Phlebotomist in 2011. I gave birth to my daughter when I was 22. Pregnancy and birth were not at ALL what I expected! I had a high-risk pregnancy and delivery that left me with some emotional scars. Postpartum was also a difficult adjustment and I felt the pressure to “be ok”. For the birth of my son I had a doula, and what a world of difference it made! I still had a high-risk pregnancy, but I was educated, supported, empowered, and could better advocate for myself and my baby. My births were very similar, but how I feel about them is very different. I experienced the value of having unwavering support, and knew that I had found my second calling (after motherhood).
Since completing my DONA training in 2016, I have supported so many wonderful families. It is my passion to come alongside families so they may have birth experiences in which they feel supported, educated and empowered; no matter how their babies are born. I believe that having the knowledge to make informed choices in birth shapes who you will be as a parent. I believe that bringing a new baby into your family and becoming a parent is a tender, transformative time and I aim to provide the support needed to ease that transition.
You will always remember the way you feel about your birth.
My goal is not just for a healthy baby; but for healthy parents. You were never meant to do this alone.
