Client Testimonials for Leah Thomas

Post a testimonial for Leah Thomas

Elizabeth Hogan


Leah is an outstanding doula, combining patience, reliability, and calm with a wealth of knowledge in childbirth care. Her kindness, empathy, and intelligence make her not only admirable but truly inspiring, fostering a sense of confidence and ease. Choosing Leah as a doula guarantees a supportive and empowering childbirth experience.

Sarah Martin


Leah has been my close friend our entire lives. She is the type of person who finds joy in caring for others. She has an espcially keen and intuitive sense of a new mother's needs, often providing care that they didn't even realize they needed until it is right in front of them. We had our second babies just 12 days apart! Even very pregnant, she came to to my side with food and care when I had my son. Leah has a calm and reassuring presence about her that can help put a new mom at ease. Anyone would be blessed to have Leah be a part of such a special and important event: the birth and aftercare of mama and baby. 



Leah Thomas has an exceptional understanding of birth and postpartum care. Her professionalism, kindness, support, and encouragement made a significant impact at my first birth. Her consistently positive attitude and wonderful personality created an incredibly positive experience for both my birth and postpartum care. I highly recommend her services; her schedule tends to fill up quickly, so early booking is a good idea. If we decide to expand our family in the future, I wouldn't hesitate to work with her again.

Leah is a real gem. Her level of knowledge about childbirth and  caring for mothers exceeds excellence. Our family adores her and we feel so grateful to have had her introduced to us through my midwife. I have a toddler and I would bring her along to all my prenatal visits. Leah was there for many of the appointments and would capture the attention of my toddler and play with her while I was present for my group prenatal. She bonded with her so easily. Leah is intuitive, loving, kind, gentle, and extremely helpful in all areas of mother and child care. I highly recommend her services to good family's who are looking for an amazing doula! 

Zol Rose


Leah is an amazing doula and friend. Her wisdom, learned through study and lived through her own personal experiences, is comforting and encouraging.  She walked with me during my pregnancy, listening to the fears, feelings, joys and discoveries of my own process. She also connected me with great resources including a lactation support group that is near me. The caring support that she offers is a great and empowering gift!
