Leslie was the backup for my doula who was sick the day of my daughter’s birth. I was a little anxious because I had never spoke to her or met her before but it turned out that Leslie was just amazing. I had a rough delivery (40+ hours of labor ending up in c-section) and Leslie was supportive all the way. Husband and I could not be more thankful to have her with us. She was extremely helpful in pain management and encouraging me as well. She made me feel strong and empowered which is, in my opinion, essential. She even offered to come back to help with breastfeeding issues (which are sorted out!)

Leslie, you’re a gem. We love you for all what you did during all these hours. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and we will recommend you to all our friends who are looking for a great support. 

Elvis and Charlene.

Leslie is an amazing doula & coach! Both my husband and I can attest to Leslie’s ability and knowledge. Her presence during the birth of our daughter was a tremendous help! Leslie created such a calming presence in the midst of such a high stress and anxious situation that we naturally create as first time mothers. This was our first pregnancy and we both wanted to have an encouraging coach before, during, and after delivery. Leslie was helpful in educating us in what to expect in the weeks leading up to the birth as well as with coaching and training provided to help ease the anxiety that we both were having when it came to childbirth itself. Leslie was educated and very encouraging with the childbirth process, and what to expect postpartum as well. Our daughter, Carlyn was born at Elliot Hospital in Manchester, NH and she drove all the way from Bridgeport CT to come assist us. Leslie was very professional, calming, and nurturing throughout both the labor and delivery. I found her coaching, education, and training to be superior to my specific goals for labor. Leslie was quick to suggest various laboring positions, made suggestions for improved labor pain, and even suggested recommendations for the nurses to help assist me. In addition to her active coaching, Leslie also provided music, aromatherapy, soft lighting and massage to help assist with stress reduction. Leslie helped us in the labor process up until my emergency c-section and I would absolutely recommend her for a doula. My husband felt more comfortable with the birthing process once we started working with Leslie, which also helped reduce his stress level when it was game time. Even though Carly ended up being a c-section delivery, Leslie was a great support system and coach during the many hours leading up to surgery. I could not have done as much laboring as I could have without her. She is awesome and we recommend her highly. Thank you so much Leslie!
