Marissa Diebolt, INNATE postpartum Care PRovider
I see the postpartum window as a potent time of healing, truly honoring it as a Fourth Trimester. It is my goal to support you finding your own intuitive guidance, validate your feelings and be a humble witness to your process.
I am here to help create the village of support around you, tending to the needs of the body, mind, and spirit with presence and love. It is my honor to provide you with loving and compassionate care during this very precious moment in time. I fully believe that present and loving Postpartum Care can create a positive future for generations to come.
Outside of my postpartum work, my other great passion is music. As a singer/songwriter I love to weave music into my care. I am always happy to share songs and hold space for others to birth songs of their own, which can be potent medicine for the postpartum time.
INNATE Postpartum Care
I find deep fulfillment in playing a supportive role during the Fourth Trimester. Working as an INNATE Postpartum Care Provider, I am part of a greater movement of practitioners stepping in to fill the void in Postpartum Care. The INNATE Postpartum practices and methods are supported by generations of wisdom from traditional communities across the globe, and are informed by the physiological needs of the post-birth body. I feel incredibly honored to carry out these traditions, and allow space for you to discover your own deep well of knowledge within.

“Sisters, mothers, daughters ~ it is with a grateful heart that I share hints of the potent medicine offered to me through a closing of the bones ceremony with Ritual Postpartum Care. Marissa held me in absolute grace and divinity. I was reminded me of my sovereignty and felt the weight lift as I surrendered deeply into the ritual. Marissa was so attentive to my needs, making sure I was comfortable and at ease. I was asked if I felt safe before we began the journey within, and was encouraged to express what I needed and wanted throughout our time together. It was so nourishing to be granted permission to be exactly where I am, and invited me to see the beauty in every moment of this sacred journey of motherhood. The following day, I felt the fear that I had been tightly clinging to in my womb ~ dissolve and release. I let go of the energy of martyrdom and began taking steps to celebrate my resiliency. I am so grateful for this ceremony with Marissa, and it is my prayer that all mothers may be blessed with this beautiful ritual of the Closing of the Bones. “
-Ulalume, mother of Sevaya
"Marissa came into my house with such warmth and ease, and I was immediately comfortable in her presence. She was so intuitive in anticipating my needs, and her helpfulness allowed me to fully relax and focus on my baby. We were sad to see her go! -Danielle, mom of Avery
"Marissa was introduced to me via a mutual friend. Her help came at a great time! I needed another pair of hands while I took care of some postpartum medical issues, and I implicitly trusted her with my little one, and he loved her immediately! She was also able to answer some questions for me, like what is the best remedy for cradle cap, and techniques for Daddy to comfort the baby when Mama's not around. She was very professional and respectful, while being very warm and kind. I highly recommend her services!" -Deva, mom of Kuma
"Marissa has a kind and intuitive heart, she was a joy to work with! It was obvious that she loves babies and their families and she gave this new mama some much needed time to heal and organize." -Betsy, mom of Eloise
