Fee Details

I work with Birthways, and at Birthways, we have been staying up to date with best practices around caring for our clients while mitigating the spread of coronavirus in our community. We’ve implemented transmission specific precaution protocols and all of our doulas have taken a COVID-19 best practices course. But we do recognize that the pressure on health care systems may mean that a doula , as always, will be thinking of ways that we can be sure you get the support you need. We are offering many new services virtually. Reach out for options!

Mollie McDougall


I had a wonderful experience with Leah. She was warm, open minded, positive, enthusiastic, and passionate about her work. I had a positive birth experience and stayed positive postpartum because of her ever present support and enthusiasm for my baby and how we were doing. Leah helped me both physically and emotionally and I am so grateful she was such a meaningful part of my birth and post partum experience.



Having a doula is really helpful for first-time-mothers. All the time we spend with Leah was 100% efficient and helpful. I would say, the “preparation” for the delivery was the most important part for me. I was completely prepared for the labor and delivery thanks to our pre-partum meetings and discussions, and, as a result - I had a good delivery. It did not go according to how I had expected it but, Leah was a huge support that it made me forget how it happen and she helped me focus on the present.

Thank you, Leah !!
