Services Offered: Birth Doula, Postpartum Doula, Childbirth Education
My name is Lesley Taylor and I am a mother to 2 and a grandmother of 6, I am a Certified Labor Doula (CAPPA) and a Certified Lactation Counsellor (ALPP) and have completed Level 1 & 2 Breastfeeding with the Quintessence Foundation.
My doula journey began when my daughter was expecting her first child. She had secured a midwife for her upcoming birth but had to transfer care to an OB at the last moment. The midwife stayed with us during her labor and birth and it was amazing to have someone in the room that could explain things as they happened. I realized that this was something I could do to support other families.
For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by pregnancy and birth and have taken every opportunity to learn as much as I can in this field.
My goal as your doula is to educate, empower, and support your family during your birth journey. I believe in the power of a positive birth experience that allows families to begin parenthood with happiness and confidence, knowing they had the best birth possible.
I feel honored to be able to support families at such a special time in their lives.
