cassie ray | doula in training
Congratulations on your pregnancy and such an important time in your life. A time where you will experience such a whirlwind of emotions. Where what you want, and how you want to experience birth should be valued, honored and supported.
My name is Cassie a birth doula through DONA International. Constantly evolving and learning, currently adding rebozo training and other specialty trainings through Gena Kirby and Cornerstone Doula Trainings. In addition, I offer placenta encapsulation & Postpartum doula and meal services. I am an essential oil educator and love offering up my knowledge to my clients who are open to using essential oils as an alternative during pregnancy, birth and the fourth trimester.
After the birth of my first daughter Scarlet, I realized how much of a gap there is between the expecting family and the providers and between that and my general passion for birth and serving others I dove into birth work. Hazel, my second daughter taught me how being educated and supported you can have the birth you desire. I want to help other families to prepare, educate and get what they want on this powerful journey to parenthood. There is a need for birth support in our community, and I want to be there to support families of all backgrounds, beliefs and walks of life.
I am very passionate about helping others and am the volunteer doula for Sacramento Kindness Campaigns refugee program. I help the families who have come here as refugees, to have memorable birth experiences and become familiar with the American birth culture. It is an honor to help these families and welcome first generations.
As a doula, my wish is for mothers and their partners to have a beautiful, memorable and powerful birth and postpartum experience. I want to support you in awareness and education, encourage you in confidence and surround you with care, respect and doula love.
I am currently working with a team of doulas at Lovin Heart Birth which allows us to best serve our families with a variety of skills, knowledge and experience.
I look forward to meeting and connecting with you.
