Leah, a Full-spectrum trained doula. As a doula and social worker, I am passionate about intentionally caring for women by walking alongside them to facilitate the sweetest experiences possible. Growing up, I heard too many stories of adults and teens feeling frustrated as they tried to understand their bodies, advocate for their health needs, and navigate avenues of motherhood. Everyone has questions, but they may not know where to direct them. My mission is to provide a listening ear, vital information and guidance for clarity so those I can support can make informed decisions. Contact
