Let’s Get Acquainted
My name is Karen and I am the owner of CaliSis Doulas. I offer Childbirth Education Classes, Professional Labor Doula Support and Postpartum & Infant Care Doula Services in Southern California. I currently operate in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties.
My focus is on holistic wellness with a Christian perspective. I believe our bodies are capable of doing what they were designed to do and my job is to be your champion through the beautiful pregnancy and birthing process.
In addition to assisting during the birth, one of my greatest joys is witnessing that new life take its first breath and have their first look at the one who has carried and nourished them. To see the transition from birthing to receiving is truly a miracle and fills the soul with greater purpose.
As a woman, wife, mother and grandmother, I understand the needs of women desiring to become mothers. The dynamics surrounding motherhood can be scary, complicated and frustrating. At the same time, motherhood is also filled with joy and a sense of accomplishment at the miracle of birth. As life bearers and givers, it is important to understand (grasp) not only the physical, mental and emotional needs, but also a connection to the spiritual. My role is to fuse all aspects of those needs to help expectant and adoptive mothers thrive in this new part of their journey.
Recognizing that the spouse/partner are also important in the process, I assist and provide essential tools to help them thrive in their new or expanding role as father/support person.
