Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work: I've been a doula for over a decade. In addition to nurturing families, I'm a ProDoula trainer who teaches others how to nurture families with compassion and excellence.
What led you to become a Doula?: After supporting the births of my nieces I knew that the birth room was a space I was comfortable in, that I understood and felt purposeful in.
What are some positive comments made about you by other people?:
“Leanne taught me key skills around feeding, soothing and babywearing. She gave me tonnes of reassurance regarding normal baby development and boosted my confidence. I can’t say enough good things. We were immediately comfortable with Leanne in our home. It felt like having an old friend helping me care for the baby and myself. She far exceeded my expectations and was a tremendous source of reassurance, wisdom, understanding and support. Leanne has been a ray of light during a tough time of transition. She is straightforward, down to earth and generous with her time and knowledge.”
