Testimonials

“Leah was such a blessing and we are so glad that we chose her to be our doula. I cant say enough about her calming energy and dedication to see your labor through. I had a particularly long and difficult labor with a sunny side up baby. She was by my side every minute while I labored at home and while I labored at the birth center. Her energy is so incredibly calming. After 22 hours, it was clear that I needed a hospital transfer. She stayed overnight and by my side during an uncertain birth for an additional 12 hours. She advocated for me at the hospital when I may have been too exhausted to advocate for myself. Leah went above and beyond for my labor and I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a doula.”

“Leah is an incredible asset to have on your birth team. She is calm, gentle and knowledgeable. She has so many tricks to help you through each stage of your birthing time. My husband and I both agreed she was invaluable and we would pay twice as much to have her there. She is worth every penny!”

“Leah was an absolute God send during my pregnancy. She was encouraging and always had such a calming presence about her. She would respond to my questions and was always reassuring. My birth plan quickly changed and she encouraged me the whole time. She brought some peace of mind to my situation. Not only was she an encouragement to me but also my mom. We could not have endured my labor without Leah! Her knowledge and expertise built confidence in me. Her massage and intuition helped me endure a very  difficult labor. I genuinely cannot express enough how much Leah meant during this time! She was a crucial part and I’m so blessed to have had her as part of my team! Highly recommend Leah!”

“We knew Leah was the right doula for us when we first met her. Her presence is calm and reassuring. She helped us talk through what we wanted during our prenatal meetings. My labor was long and drawn out, but once Leah came, she helped us get things going. Her knowledge and massage skills were an incredible thing to have during labor. It was really incredible to have her cheer me on, give me water to drink, rub my back, and just be with me when I was in labor and even postpartum. I was so thankful to have her and I really don’t think I could’ve done it without her. If we have more babies, you better believe we are going to call Leah.”

“Our first natural birth exceeded any expectations we had thanks to our wonderful doula. We knew Leah was “the one” at our first meeting. Her demeanor and presence was so calming. She has such a gentle and passionate soul. At first, we were a little nervous about what was in store for us. Yet, Leah ensured we were prepared. She showed us exercises, props, and other techniques to make laboring more comfortable and effective. She was always reassuring and positive about our capabilities. During the actual labor process her confidence in us, as well as herself, never waivered. She allowed my body to labor as it saw fit. All the while offering many amazing positions during active labor and during our stalling point. The honey straws and massages she provided gave me life !! Leah was literally there every step of the way. She even accompanied us in the car to the birth center. The words of encouragement she gave, as our baby was entering earth side, was exactly what I needed in that moment. We feel so blessed to have had her by our side through this process. God himself couldn’t have hand picked a better doula for us!”

“My experience using a doula was amazing! Leah was amazing, from massage to helping me remember to breathe. She was a great partner beside me and my husband, she was such a supportive person! Thank you so much, this experience will never be forgotten! It was also amazing that she is a Hypnobabies hypno-doula, which I used to birth our baby!”

“Although we weren’t able to have Leah attend the actual birth of our daughter due to the pandemic we are facing, we really appreciated the few prenatal visits we had with her and all the knowledgeable advice she was able to give us through the last few weeks of our pregnancy. She gave us helpful tips and resources on how to turn our breech baby, how to encourage the baby to drop lower, and of course most importantly how to manage the pain during contractions and labor. All this and more! We really felt supported by her and appreciated being able to contact her anytime with questions and concerns leading up to the birth. Overall we were so happy to have had Leah there for us through our journey to parenthood, we would definitely recommend her services to anyone!”

“I chose Leah to be my doula for the delivery of my fourth baby because she is an amazing massage therapist, and just being around her is relaxing and calming!  She met with me many times before that day, and talked about what she could offer and what I would want, and we came up with a good plan.  Leah is so kind, and she made the whole thing about me and what I wanted.  When we got to the hospital, my water had broken and my contractions had stopped. They wanted to induce me after a few hours.  Leah helped me get up and moving around and my contractions started again and I didn’t have to be induced.  My desire for a natural birth was achieved with Leah’s help! During labor, she was a calm steady presence in the room that I really needed.  She had specific pressure point therapy techniques that reduced the intensity of contractions significantly!  She worked well with my husband and let him just be close to me and encourage me while she massaged and helped make sure I had everything I needed..  She made the whole experience more relaxing and easy.  She coached and encouraged me in just the right times.  During transition, she put pressure on my lower back and it made those sharp frequent sensations about half as intense!  When my energy was low right before the pushing stage began, she got close to my face and told me not to give up and that I could do it.  I was encouraged and strengthened to get through the last little bit and meet my baby boy!  My only regret was that I didn’t have Leah at my other three births!  She’s amazing!”

“So far, Leah has been the doula for the births of two of my grandchildren.  She was amazing.  All of her focus was completely on my daughters and making them comfortable during their labors.  Her skill as both a doula and massage therapist proved invaluable.  We are looking forward to having her help in the labor and delivery of our next grandbaby who is due in July.”

“Leah was an incredible help during my pregnancy and labor! The nurses strongly recommended a Pitocin induction, but we had previously had a bad experience with Pitocin. Leah helped us communicate our wishes with the hospital staff, and was able to help move labor along more quickly than the nurses expected. She was very respectful of me and my husband’s wishes – when we wanted her help and when we wanted privacy. She was helpful in answering all of our questions and giving us helpful information throughout my pregnancy and early labor; but she was most helpful during active labor! Whenever I felt like I couldn’t continue, she was there to encourage me, recommend changing positions, massage pressure points, and help me stay focused. She took a lot of pressure off of my husband, so that he could focus more on encouraging me and being my emotional support. I would never want to go through labor again without her!”

Robyn- Colorado Springs, 2019

“I am so thankful to have had Leah on my support team and as a part of my son’s birth. She was truly a blessing to my husband and I throughout my entire birth, from when I called her in the middle of the night with a question about whether or not I was really starting my birthing time to the hour after my son was born. She was encouraging, calm, and kind every step of the way, and was able to share great ideas for moving things along, as well as ways my husband could participate and encourage me, too. Her gentle voice and hand on my shoulder were exactly the support I needed through so much of my birth. So grateful you were there, Leah!”

Anne- Colorado Springs, 2020

“We knew Leah was a great fit from our very first meeting! Her calm, reassuring presence was exactly what we needed, especially considering how my labor and delivery ended up going. After about 60 hours over 4 days and 3 separate stalls, Leah was with us nearly the whole time. She had a lot of good ideas to help get labor gong again once it stalled, and knew when to sit tight and when to call the midwives. She was unable to come to the hospital with us (thanks to Covid19 restrictions) but was available by phone if we had questions and was available to us postpartum. I highly recommend Leah!”
