About me

I am a Denver area Certified Professional Doula, specializing in prenatal education, labor and delivery support and comfort measures. My journey to becoming a Doula began 8 years ago when I was blessed with my own amazing daughter, and ever since I’ve been fueled by passion to help other birthing people feel empowered by their own experience, access evidence based resources, and make best decisions for their own unique process. I also have a background in psychology (BA Metro State 2012), and as a family law paralegal (Certification 2017). My education and professional background have equipped me with a broad range of experience to serve a wide variety of family dynamics. The journey to becoming a parent, no matter the process, whether it’s your first or fifth, is fascinating and so powerful, and deserves the utmost care and understanding. If you, or someone you love is seeking Doula support through the pregnancy, labor, and delivery journey, my most heartfelt congratulations, and I would love to meet you!

Leah was amazing. She was really wonderful at hearing our concerns and making sure she was on the same page with what we wanted and needed. When our plan went sideways 6 or 7 times, she rolled with it and, more importantly, helped us roll with it. When I ended up having to go in for a c section, she helped advocate to make sure she was able to be in the OR to support me while my husband was able to focus on the baby, which meant so much to both of us.

As a pregnant person, I had heard of doulas but didn't really understand how they fit into labor and delivery care. My husband and I got to talk with Leah about how a doula could help and she was informative, kind and thoughtful in what she shared with us and how she answered our questions. One of my main concerns was handling the pain of labor and Leah took the time to explain in a way that I could understand and process, making things feel much less scary. She made me feel capable and competent. I had a positive birth experience overall, I was mentally able to manage the pain and not panic because of the help I received from Leah in remembering that contractions come in waves (like a Hiit workout ☺).
