About Me

I have been married to my husband since July 7th, 2007. (7.7.7) 

We have 2 beautiful daughters and our sweet rainbow son who completes our family of 5.

My passion for Doula work came quickly after my first child was born in 2010. The continuous emotional and physical support I received during my labour was personally empowering and so needed! I didn't know the value of a doula's role until I had one myself.   I provide that same passion and support to the families I serve. I share my heart and soul to help you achieve your goals. 

I enjoy playing cards, getting together with friends, playing softball, watching my children play ball, and reading a good book by a campfire or sitting by a river.

How can a Doula help me?

As your Doula I will help you determine your goals for your birth. I will respect, inform and nurture your hopes and goals. We will work through any fears together. I can be your sounding board and your coach. Once labour starts I will be by your side from start to finish and beyond.

If I have a Midwife, why do I need a Doula?

Doula's are trained for emotional support and to provide comfort measures for you and your partner during labour all stages of labour. Midwives are incredible and medically trained and are the experts in labour. Their priority is to maintain the well being of you and your baby during labour and delivery.  Midwives provide labour support, typically when your labour has progressed to 3-1-1. Doula's come a lot sooner. 
Midwives and Doula's work wonderfully together!  Lets build the best Birth Team to support you!

What if I want an Epidural?

Many clients who want an epidural in their birth plan still hire a Doula! Epidurals are a great tool to have available. I will share evidence based information regarding the benefits and risks of an epidural. Being informed is important to me. I will come to your home to support you during early labour if needed and will guide you along to the hospital. It's good to keep in mind that sometimes labour progresses quickly, so knowing other comfort measures is very important. As your Doula I will help you breathe and relax with the intensity of labour if your epidural is delayed or unavailable.

It's a Big Investment

It’s true, my support is an investment. If you consider the peace of mind and support during the time of unknowns and uncertainty, my physical/emotional and psychological support will make it worth the investment. I promise!

I would encourage you to read my reviews to understand the value of my services.

Some insurance providers cover some or all of the costs of Doula support.

I believe in body autonomy and medical freedom. It is very important to me that you feel comfortable with everything that happens

 No matter your medical choices you deserve to be supported no matter what.

I will be forever grateful to Leanne as my doula. She checked in with me leading up to my birth and sent me lots of great resources and was available to answer my questions. During my home birth she stayed by my side and seemed to intuitively know when to help with a hip squeeze and talk me through contractions. She also used rollers on my back, suggested alternate positions, reminded me to restart my hypnobirth tracks and to drink water. Together with my midwives, it was such a blessing to be surrounded and supported by such strong and caring women as I brought my daughter into the world. She took photos and videos as my daughter was born and captured some truly precious and emotional moments that I otherwise would never have to review. Leanne also came for 3 postpartum visits and helped with holding the baby so I could shower and eat, bathing baby, doing laundry, vacuuming and other light chores, playing with my toddler. Not only was her support wonderful through these actions, but also her advice and guidance (and adult conversation) were a light in those hectic days. I was so sad to say goodbye to her on her last visit. Leanne has a positive, calm, and loving demeanour that made her so easy to get along with, it felt as though I'd known her a long time.

There is too much to say about how much we loved having Leanne as our doula but here is some key things as to why we loved Leanne as our families doula♥?. Not only is she super awesome at advocating for her families but she is a fountain of knowledge!. When looking for a doula I not only wanted someone to support myself as the mother but my spouse and daughter as well since our first child was not as I had wanted due to being high risk and caused a lot of anxiety in not only myself but greatly within my partner for fear of what kept being spoken over me within the hospital. As I laboured Leanne knew exactly where I needed pressure and comfort without me even needing to speak and for that I'm forever grateful for her as in the moments without her felt like an eternity and when she was with me time went quickly with her words leading me through each wave peacefully. Our eldest followed her around and Leanne was so kind and had endless grace with her and involved her in all going ons and emersyn still speaks of moms baby helper often ??. I spoke often that we would have two children and be done but my 2nd labour was as I always wanted and so peaceful I'm now considering a 3rd and if it happens Leanne will be by our sides again. 

When we began our journey with Leanne we never expected to have received such a tremendous impact on our journey through our pregnancy, and our lives really.

The guidance and support Leanne provided from day one was truly amazing. We had a few hiccups along the way, Leanne was there through every step.

There is no way our delivery would have been as manageable without Leanne. We feel she kept the room together, ensuring our message was kept clear to the hospital staff and that we were emotionally and physically supported.

Having Leanne available to ask questions was a huge asset as there are so many pros and cons to everything. Leanne knew our intended path and was able to provide support based on that path.

Never will we forget the support Leanne provided us. And never would we been able to get through our pregnancy and delivery as well as we did without her.

*This was a surrogacy pregnancy*

When I contacted Leanne, I had recently broken up with my partner and had planned on having him their for the birth. I too am a doula and also had the thought that it might be nice to have the experience of having a doula myself! 

At the meet and greet, I knew Leanne was the one for me! She just had this overall sense of positivity, lightness and passion about birth which drew me in. When I gave birth to this baby, it was during the Covid-19 pandemic (definitely a weird time to be born!), during this time Leanne's support did not falter. We had our second prenatal visit via phone call and she took all the necessary precautions on her end so she could be their at the birth with me. 

When the birth took place and we met up, she immediately jumped right in and was hands on. She knew what I needed before I did! She spoke words of encouragement to me and helped me achieve the natural birth I wanted in the first place. 

Throughout the pregnancy, she provided me with resources about labor and delivery, tips for "drying up" and made sure I had lots of support in the postpartum period. I am so so happy I had Leanne at my birth, and am so grateful to have just met her in general! When I have another baby, I will definitely be hiring her again!!

Leanne was a life saver for the birth of my daughter. My husband and I hadn't organized having a birth doula, but after 12 hours of labour, we were so lucky to have Leanne available to support us. She was kind, knowledgeable and helped us through one of the most challenging days we've ever experienced. She guided me through contractions, rest and supported us at the hospital. In retrospect, I would have organized Leanne to be with us from the very beginning. We were so glad she was with us and we highly recommend her service to anyone expecting a baby! 

~Breton B~

Leanne helped me through my labour and is so knowledgeable. 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-section 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. 

~Jessica A~

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 pregnancy 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 absolutely 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!

~Kyle McCaffrey and JJ~

Leanne is not only my cousin in law, but was my guiding light during my son's water birth. I wanted to give up and die many times, but her words of encouragement and bubbly positivity got me and my hubby through this incredible 7hr adventure. She was a godsend to us! 

If you are looking or thinking of having a doula for extra support during your pregnancy/birth journey, then I would highly recommend her services. I'm so happy she became a doula and that i got to have her by my side during this amazing time. 

~Melina Vallee~

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 wouldn't 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 wouldn't 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.
