Meet the doula who you on your choices, you to make them and helps you the ahead!!
I'm beyond honored to do this work as a Doula; to educate families, empower them and help them embrace the journey ahead.
After the birth of my 5 children, I was interested in finding a way to help other families on their journey to parenthood. I attended a 4-day birth doula and breastfeeding basics workshop and a 3-day Postpartum Doula workshop, both presented by DONA International. As part of my training, I shadowed 3 doulas as they helped families and my passion grew! I have helped families in hospital, home births, and a birth centers.
As a Postpartum Doula, I am there to help each new family in those first days and weeks after bringing home the new addition.
We are first time parents, and we were looking for a knowledgeable, supportive, easy-going coach for labor/delivery. Leona was patient and attentive throughout my long labor. She was invaluable to both me and my husband who has said more than once "I can't imagine what it would have been like without her". Her relaxation techniques and support helped both my husband and I get through the labor process. I can never thank Leona enough for making my at home birth such a good experience!!

I wanted to thank you for all your hard work and dedication to my birth process and plan. Your work did not go unnoticed. Thank your for everything, including your love and support. I have your number saved so I'll know who to call with our next baby!

As National Doula Week comes to a close, I cannot forget to recognize my amazing doula @thebirthstudio . She never left my side (literally), supported me in ways I didn’t know I would need support, made sure I ate, stayed hydrated, became our birth photographer, pulled all sorts of tricks out of her bag and so much more! She did all of this for me just hours after supporting another momma, getting very little sleep, and being attentive to me and my needs for almost 24 hours. I could never thank you enough! Thanks for being such a great doula Leona!!!
