LeNay was such an incredible addition to our birth team. Both my husband and myself felt loved and supported through the entire experience. LeNay educated us in our prenatal visits and so graciously answered our every question. She cared for us so lovingly through the birth of our son. As a new mom, post partum was a challenge filled with big emotions and many questions. LeNay ALWAYS made me feel safe and supported, answering all of my questions and always expressing an encouraging word. We would hire LeNay a million times over again!!
There are so many words that I could use to describe LeNay and her character not only as a doula, but also as a fellow mama and now friend. She is truly passionate about what she does and is full of so much love. My expereince with LeNay during the birth of our second daughter was one I will never forget. She knew every thing my husband and I wanted when we were planning on going with a natural child birth at a birth center. She met with us while I was still pregnant and gave us numerous educational material and hands on practice with different pain relieving techniques and birthing techniques. She was always available via texting or calling, no matter the time or day. She listened to my concerns leading up to the birth of my daughter and helped couch my husband and I through the hardest parts of labor. She was there when my husband needed a break to get some rest while I was laboring. She was reassuring that I was doing the best job I could do. She stayed with my husband and I after our daughter was born and even made me a smoothie at the birth center before leaving. She followed up with us immediatley. I cannot wait to have another baby and have LeNay be apart of our birth. She is worth her weight in gold. She was my doula, but now I consider her a friend. We still stay in contact and my daughter is now 10 months old. Thank you, LeNay, for being someone I could lean on before, during, and after the birth of our daughter!
It was truly a blessing to work with LeNay! I knew she would be a great resource for me during my pregnancy, but I couldn't even begin to fathom what an amazing support she would be during labor/delivery for myself and more importantly my husband. Any anxiety that either of us had was instantly put at ease with her constant encouragement. We could not and would not have wanted to have welcomed our son without her!
LeNay is an amazing doula! She is very kind and caring. She provided so much support before, during, and after my sons birth. At first I didn't think I needed a doula, but after thinking about it, I decided I wanted someone, in addition to my husband, by my side to help me through the birth of our first child. I am so glad we made the decision to hire her, I know for a fact that if she wasn't there, my birth would have been way more stressful. Her calm nature kept me calm. The nurses are in and out, but having LeNay by my side the entire time made me feel less stressed as well. When I first got there, I requested pain management drugs, but after a bit, I realized I didn't need them. I truely believe that your mindset has a lot to do with how you interpret pain. I believe staying as calm as I could be during the birth made all the difference in the world! I will definitely hire LeNay again for any future births!
LeNay was an amazing support during my pregnancy and 19 hours of labor. She was by my side and gently encouraged me to relax throughout every contraction. She is a true servant of women. I can't express enough that LeNay was an amazing support system for me. She always made sure I was hydrated and had enough nutrition throughout my labor. She also worked well along side the rest of the staff. LeNay's training in spinning babies was extremely beneficial during my pregnancy and labor as well. She taught me a lot of exercises that I could do during the third trimester and throughout labor that was really helpful in getting baby in the right position for labor. I highly recommend LeNay to anyone expecting a baby. I plan to use her again if I we ever were to expect another baby in the future.
How do I even begin to explain LeNay,
This woman is incredible!
she is supportive, patient, extremely knowledgeable, respectful, and just as sweet as can be! She is very intentive to what you desire for you birth and is determined to make those requests a reality anyway she can. The love and support I received from her was beyond words. She empowers women and is always reasurring that you know what's best for you and your baby and to trust your morherly instinct. Every birth is beautiful no matter how a baby is brought into this world! I can't recommend her enough! She has been such a blessing to me and my family. LeNay is more than a doula, she is a friend and will now and forever hold a very special place in my heart.
I was so happy with LeNay as my doula and would absolutely recommend her to anybody and everybody! I LOVED how she was so sensitive to me getting the birth that I wanted; no judgment; just support and encouragement. I was massively impressed by how detailed she was, and how much she was willing and able to do for my husband and me before, during, and after the birth! It meant the world to me that she was able to capture the moments (both through journaling and photography) that I missed during birth; and I knew I would miss (this was my 3rd birth). My husband was wonderfully supportive too, but with LeNay also being a mom, she had more “tools in her tool belt” than he did on how to help me through the birthing process; after all, not every birth is the same! Our nurses were also wonderful, but we weren’t their only patients. LeNay was able to stay with us the entire time, and there is immeasurable comfort in that. Then, reliving it all with her later (minus the struggle) was such a joy to me! I’ve honestly never met anybody as sweet and encouraging as her, but what sets her apart from the rest is her steadfast faith in Jesus and knowing what a true miracle these babies are to us; gifts from the Lord!
I had thought that I did everything right during my pregnancy & that my labor would be picture perfect. I ended up having a c-section because little miss was stubborn. Through my entire birth experience LeNay never left my side. She was there coaching me through every brutal contraction, feeding me honey & making sure that I was hydrated. She took me, swept me up and made me feel safe & empowered. My husband has never been through anything like that before and she wasn't just there supporting me she helped my husband when he was lost and didn't know how much more he could take. He's never seen me in that amount of pain and exhaustion before. ANYONE would be extremely blessed to have her support. She is everything that kept me together when all i wanted was to break. We love & cherish LeNay. We know you will to??
