Hi, I’m Leah, a professional Birth & Postpartum Doula based in Bloor West Village, Toronto.

I am offering prenatal yoga classes, childbirth education, labour & delivery support, postpartum doula care, kids yoa and 'mindful sessions, ' and in-home childcare/support.

"I consider Leah to be a 'bringer of light'. My daughter thinks she is a Woodland Fairy.. Leah has cared for my daughter on a weekly basis for almost 2 years. Leah provides a respectful, stimulating, affectionate, and safe play and learning experience for Sophie, who is now 3. What touches me most, is the degree to which Leah is invested in my daughter’s wellbeing, education, and development as a person. I wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to recommend Leah as a doula.

Leah was a fantastic support in helping us to successfully achieve the natural birth that we wanted. Leah was a huge help from the moment that she arrived at the hospital. I was very nauseous and she immediately helped me with peppermint oil and soft massages. Leah helped to create the birth environment that we wanted by dimming the lights and playing soothing rainwater music, this all helped to keep me centered and focused. Leah was present for over 12 hours and never stopped working. She had great pain management techniques and was incredibly responsive to me as the labour progressed. We so appreciated Leah’s calm and nurturing personality, she was the perfect support and we would highly recommend her to anyone.

Leah provided sole care for my newborn baby and my toddler, last-minute, after I found her online. My husband was away during my birth and for the first few months of my baby’s life, so it was so reassuring to have Leah’s help whenever I needed her. She was able to easily change newborn diapers, bottle feed my baby, and assist with the household in general. She also gave me effective suggestions for soothing my collicy baby! Leah has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to babies and toddlers and cares for them in a gentle and magical way. I trust her fully with my children.
