I had originally hired a different doula for the birth of my baby this past june. I also had booked a birthing suite here in calgary, but things did not go as planned! My midwife couldn't make it so she sent another midwife filling in for her, my doula couldn't make it due to unforeseen circumstances and I was progressing too fast to make it to the birthing center! My entire plan had gone out the window. Here I am at home pacing around my house riding out every contraction not knowing if anyone would make it on time for the birth, it was a tad stressful for sure but once Leanne arrived (sent by my original doula) I could finally relax and get into the zone. I can say with 100% certainty that I wouldnt have been able to stay as calm and confident in myself if Leanne had not been there. With things being so fast paced since I was 10cm when the midwives arrived, nothing about the situation was as calm as I wanted or imagined it to be. But with the reassurance and words of encouragement from Leanne, I felt relaxed and confident in myself. She was right there with me holding my hand, pushing on my back during every contraction, leaning over into the tub to support me (you're a trooper btw) getting me cold cloths and water, she was there for me every step of the way. Without her it wouldnt have been such a wonderful experience. I am forever grateful she arrived at my house that day. She is incredible and I would 100% recommend her again and again. Thank you.
I first contacted Leanne through her Instagram page, and from the get go, she was very easy to communicate with and was able to provide a wealth of knowledge with pre/post pregancy and what we should expect. My wife and I had some complications with our pregnancy at the start, and Leanne was nothing but supportive and walked us through the next steps. During our delivery, we were in the hospital for over 24hrs and Leanne spent the whole time with us at the hospital. She assisted with breathing techniques, massages, and best of all acted as a friend for my wife and I.
Leanne has always been available to contact either by phone/text/email and at all hours of the day. I would highly recommend Leanne for anyone going through a pregnancy. Being a Doula is something that she absoutley loves and its evident in the way she deals with families going through a pregnancy.
I can't say enough good things about Leanne and if we plan on having another child, she will be one of our first phone calls!
Leanne helped me through my labour and is so knowledgable. she gave me lots of emotional support and help through a difficult labour. She is great!Leanne not only supported myself through labour, before being induced but she supported my partner. As first time parents and full of anxiety and the unknown she helped us to navigate questions and be able to advocate for us to have the most positive birth experience. At the start of the labour induction, we were set on having a vaginal delivery, but things changed and we ended up having a c-sectuon for the birth of our son. She helped us ask the right questions so we would be able to make an informed decision. She is an absolute gem of a human and I would not hesitate to hire her again.
Leanne was amazing with the birth of our second child this WEEK! My husband and I are so grateful for the support Leanne has provided us before,durning and after birth.
She has really made this experience even more unique, she is very intuitive through out the whole process! Not to mention Knowledgeable, a wonderful personality and a great sense of humor. All things you want/need and more in your doula!
Leanne has changed the way we thought about doulas, we were unsure if we needed one(since this was our second round) after this experience we cannot imagine doing this again without a doula and specifically without Leanne!!
