Birth & Postpartum Doula, Evidence Based Birth Childbirth Educator, Babywearing Consultant, Mother
I'm a Birth and postpartum doula, Childbirth Educator, Babywearing Consultant, Evidence Based BirthTM Instructor... but also a mom to a first grader and we love to spend time with our adopted Shih Tzu and tabby kitten when I'm not working. Oh, and coffee. Always iced coffee!
I am also called to help birthworkers connect with families, and to that end I am the founder and owner of both Peridot Births and Qwikdew marketing solutions.
As an organization, Peridot Births, is passionate about birth justice, with a special personal interest in Black birthing families. Supporting Black and Brown birthing families, People of Color, and members of the LGBTQAI+ community is of the highest priority for Leslie, and no member of any of these identified communities will be turned away due to insufficient resources. Please contact Leslie at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss opportunities and payment arrangements.
If you are privileged financially and would like to support Leslie's work in the community, you may contact her directly at given email address or make donations to Venmo @lesliethelashlady and PayPal.me/lesliemg

Birth and Labor Doulas serve as personal birth consultants to the whole birthing family. Focused on emotional, physical and informational support, birth doulas are essential members of your birth team. Check out our favorite packages to get you the support you need to have the dope birth experience you've been wishing to make real.
The postpartum period is the single most important time in a birthing person's life; in modern times, it is also the single most neglected time in a birthing person's life. The postpartum doula can make this pivotal time an amazing time for healing and personal growth. Learn more about the role of the postpartum doula, and understand why we think you can't afford not to have one.
Families supported by a postpartum doula often report reduced instance postpartum mood disorders and improved breastfeeding success.
As a postpartum doula, I support cultural practices that can improve feelings around this crucial healing time. I incorporate universally traditional practices for postpartum recovery, such as belly binding, herbal baths, vaginal steaming, body rubs and nourishing foods.
