Since childhood Leah possessed a passion and fascination for Newborn, Child, and Women’s health. During college she worked by educating and supporting multiple families with newborn care and lactation support and continues to provide this same support today. She pursued her dream of helping mothers, infants, and children by obtaining a degree as a Registered Nurse specializing in maternal/child health as well as a certification in Lactation Counseling. She previously worked at Ochsner Medical Center on their Mother/Baby Unit, at St. David’s Medical Center in the Newborn Nursery and at OBGYN North – Natural Beginning Birth Center. Leah has been trained by DONA international as a labor doula to further her knowledge and experience to support expectant and new mothers with compassion and trust.
Throughout her professional career Leah found a strong need for additional support, assistance, and evidence based education from patients and friends regarding pregnancy, labor, breastfeeding support and care of the newborn. She desired to spend more time with her patients by providing in-home support through professional consulting. Leah also has two wonderful children of her own, Amelia and Ellis.
Leah keeps up-to-date on current research and prepares new and expectant mothers and fathers for their journey into parenthood through her warmth and genuine nature. She provides families just what they need to feel at ease with the changes a new baby brings. She has built an amazing team to help support, guide, educate, and empower families during pregnancy and beyond.
