    Leigh is a fantastic instructor! I absolutely loved her. Our classes were supposed to be in-person but due to covid, we moved online (Zoom). Leigh handled that transition extremely well, and I felt supported every step of the way. My husband and I took the five-week course with a handful of other couples. Each class had a theme – ex stages of labor, being at the hospital, etc. Leigh is extremely knowledgeable! She guided us through slideshows and talked us through every aspect of childbirth. With each class, my understanding of how I wanted my labor to go became clearer. My husband and I were able to articulate a birth plan that made sense for us, which we later shared with our midwives. Leigh also provided a ton of resources after every class, including pain coping strategies, positions for labor, breastfeeding tutorials, etc, which I used for reference again and again. I felt so much more ready for labor after taking her 5-week class. I would highly, highly recommend!

    We took Leigh’s Cooperative Childbirth Education Series and it was an amazing experience. Leigh is extremely knowledgeable about all of the stages of birth, including the “fourth trimester”. The class was very organized and had an excellent cadence. Leigh’s great personality and sense of humor make what could be a boring series of classes fun. She is very open to helping students and was very helpful in answering many of our basic questions. We would recommend this class to anyone preparing for childbirth!

    Leigh’s childbirth class is a must. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to approach their birth consciously. Leigh was extremely invested getting as much across about the birthing scenario as possible. She has so much experience in assisting in births as a doula, and this comes across in her enthusiasm and humble confidence in taking us through this material. One of my take-aways from this class was that no matter how prepared you think you are, that the unexpected can/will probably happen (and it certainly did for us!)– but in expecting the unexpected, we weren’t completely blindsided by these experiences.

    On the contrary. Leigh did such an amazing job of taking us through so many aspects of the birth experience, from the types of changes occur hormonally (breaking down and de-mystifying how contractions happen and how childbirth even progresses at all), to the types of scenarios that may likely happen within the hospital (or other) settings– Leigh was fundamentally invested in equipping us with the tools to be prepared and advocate for ourselves within systems may not necessarily have our priorities 100% in mind.

    We would have loved to have hired Leigh as a doula but she was already booked– So her class was a total must. Ultimately Leigh offered her support virtually (due to this crazy Covid scenario). She was so amazingly helpful! Particularly as she had already gained our confidence in class in her approach and objectivity. I can’t express enough how much her presence and feedback did for us during the birth!

    Another great aspect of this class experience was the connections we made with other soon-to-be parents experiencing uncannily similar pregnancy phenomena. It was reassuring to meet weekly with other rapidly expanding mothers/parents. We would have felt much more isolated (and somewhat freaked out) through the birth process and beyond without this class! Totally worth it.

    Leigh is such an amazing resource. We took the five-week class during the COVID quarantine and Leigh put a lot of focus into ensuring we all felt supported and connected in spite of our online-class situation.

    The course material is thorough, yet digestible. We’re glad we took the longer route, as I’m not sure I’d have been able to learn and retain as much information as I did in one of the one-day courses. This was the perfect balance of information and time.

    Another benefit of this class is the zero judgement brought to every step of the pregnancy, birth, and postpartum education. All options were discussed and explored equally, with a strong focus on evidence-based knowledge, paired with Leigh’s extensive experience as a doula.

    Leigh is hilarious and keeps it all light and entertaining throughout.

    100% recommend and if we’d decided to go the doula, we’d feel very confident in her hands. Thank you, Leigh!
