About me

Jenn Leonard is one of Colorado's leading specialists in connecting new parents with the finest professional support and guidance through pregnancy, birth, and infant care. In 1996, Jenn's first son was born – and she had never as much as babysat a newborn, leading her to wonder how new parents were supposed to do it all on their own! After five years of dedicated research and education, other parents started to come to Jenn for pregnancy and infant advice, and her passion for family support was ignited. In 2011, Jenn became formally trained and certified in supporting new families through birth and postpartum. Shortly after, she founded Colorado Mountain Doulas, the first doula agency in Colorado Springs. Today, she heads up Colorado Newborn, a statewide agency connecting parents with pregnancy and birth support; placenta services; postpartum support; overnight newborn care; and other supportive family services. When not matching up tired new parents with their dream postpartum and infant specialist, Jenn can be found writing relatable blogs or enjoying the beautiful Colorado scenery or working their small homestead with her husband Adam, her sons Chris, Ash, and Aeden, and her three furred kids.
