Leigh has been a doula for 8 years and has loved seeing herself and others change through  birth.  She has been involved in 30+ births, but who's counting.  She has done twins, epidurals, shoulder dystocia, c-sections, inductions, vacuum assisted, medicated, unmedicated, water birth, hospital, birth centers, home, and transports from home to hospital.  She has helped women through loss, over coming past abuse, surrogate deliveries, adoptions, and in vitro pregnancies.

 

She has been married for 10 years, and has four kids.  All of her children were delivered at home.   

 

Birth Philosophy

 

People are never more vulnerable than in birth.  They cry, sweat, expose their bodies, fear, and anticipate.  During this time they must be supported through physical, informational, and emotional support.  Their desired environment must also be guarded and protected.   This is a sacred time for them to grow individually and as a couple.  Their relationships and ability to parent strengthens.  When the experience is compromised through misunderstanding, disrespect, and unnecessary procedures they are scarred forever.
