My husband and I are so thankful we had LeAnn by our side throughout pregnancy, labor, delivery, and beyond! LeAnn was a wealth of information, reassurance, and positivity that really boosted our confidence as first-time parents. She was really in tune with our desires and helped us explore our options to achieve the birth we wanted, while also calming our anxieties. LeAnn was a tremendous source of peace during labor and delivery; she provided wonderful pain-relieving support and helped my husband participate (and rest) during labor. I can’t imagine our birth experience without LeAnn’s calm, comforting presence! Even postpartum, she continues to be a great source of encouragement for us.
LeAnn was absolutely phenomenal. Right from the beginning she was there providing tons and tons of really insightful articles and documents that answered so many questions for me. LeAnn has experienced two births herself, so she knew the exact suggestions to make that we’re perfectly aligned with the birth experience I wanted. I was very comfortable with LeAnn; I never once felt any judgement about my choices, just encouragement and acceptance. She is very calm and has a peaceful energy around her that I needed during my recent birth. I cannot thank her enough for her time and excellent care during one of the most incredible moments of my life. She still blesses me with messages or calls to check in on me postpartum. She’ll be a part of a memory I’ll share with my family forever.
LeAnn was an amazing doula. I wasn’t sure I needed a doula, since it was my third birth and I had had two previous uncomplicated labors. But her calm, nurturing personality is so encouraging that I thought it would be a good idea. I am so glad I did! even though it was my third birth, it was my longest and most difficult active labor. LeAnn was by my side the whole time.
Her gentle, unintrusive presence gave me the support I needed, and allowed me to focus inward. She seemed to know what I needed without me even asking; she brought me water, applied counter pressure, and suggested position changes without being pushy.
After my son was born, my husband said, “I don’t know what we would have done without LeAnn!” She was so supportive and caring when we were both exhausted, and her calm energy really kept us both going. She has a gift for this, and I would recommend her to anyone.
