LeNay was such an incredible addition to our birth team. Both my husband and myself felt loved and supported through the entire experience. LeNay educated us in our prenatal visits and so graciously answered our every question. She cared for us so lovingly through the birth of our son. As a new mom, post partum was a challenge filled with big emotions and many questions. LeNay ALWAYS made me feel safe and supported, answering all of my questions and always expressing an encouraging word. We would hire LeNay a million times over again!!
We absolutely loved having LeNay as our birth doula for our second baby. We were looking for someone to support my husband in the labor process as well as to provide encouragement and guidance in our pregnancy. LeNay was exactly the perfect fit. She provided excellent, personal prenatal doula care with teaching us the spinning babies exercises, offering her listening ear and words of encouragement, and always made herself available to us regardless of time of day. In the labor process she was an incredible asset to our team. She made us feel so at home and at ease with her tender words of affirmation, assertiveness to keep us well energized and hydrated, and provided such a sense of calm to the birthing environment. After our birth, she was present and fully engaged with us to make sure we were confident in nursing and had adequate nourishment before she left us to enjoy our new baby for the night. She was diligent to keep checking in with us in the days and weeks to follow with the same grace and kindness that she was exhibited the entirety of our pregnancy and labor. The bonus gift for us was a personal letter written to our baby accounting their birth story from her eyes. We couldn’t have asked for a better doula for our family and 10/10 we would have her all over again!
This was my first pregnancy, and I decided to hire Lenay after searching for Christian doulas near us. From the first time we met, we immediately had a great rapport. Lenay was non-judge mental, supportive, warm and professional. We met a total of three times before our labor for our initial meeting and two prenatal appointments. It was great to talk to her, vent, and ask questions throughout the whole process. She gave us exercises to prepare for labor, and some great tips and recipes on peri-labor snacks! The morning I went into labor, I was at ease speaking to Lenay. Her calm voice and reassurance always made me feel prepared and in charge to take on this race. Lenay was at the hospital waiting for us by the door before we even pulled up. She was a strong advocate for us with the healthcare team, while at the same time very gentle in her delivery of suggestions. At one point during the transition period, I felt that I couldn’t go on naturally, but I really wanted to . Least knew that, and encouraged me on. “Char you are so close. You CAN do this. By the time anesthesia comes, you probably will have already had your baby.” That was everything I needed to hear. When I was about to push and very scared, Lenay said a prayer, and I immediately gained the strength and courage from the Lord. After we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Lenay gave me a dark chocolate bar to help stimulate contractions of my uterus, and hand delivered our placenta to our encapsulation specialist. She always went above and beyond for our family. We received 12 hours of postpartum care with Lenay. It was great to have her as a helper and someone to lean on. She came to the doctor with me and my daughter, helped with meal prep, baby care, and light household chores. I’m so glad she recommended the Haaka, and creating a diaper changing station downstairs. I will definitely be using Lenay for subsequent pregnancies. She is a joy and has a peaceful presence that she carries with her.
LeNay has been such a blessing! From the moment I initially called her to see if she was the right fit, I felt a connection with her and I knew she was going to be just what I needed. This was my first pregnancy and there were some complications, not to mention it being during covid. Although we only hired LeNay for postpartum support, she still checked in on me during my pregnancy and offered such great advice!!! LeNay is such a kind, sweet, genuine person that WANTS to support you and has a servant heart. She provided practical new mom and baby advice, a wonderful listening ear, and she was a great help with meal prep and light household chores. Having LeNay in our home was a blessing to us, and I feel like I gained a wonderful friend in the process. I truly feel every mom should have a postpartum doula. LeNay took so much stress off of us during such a huge life transition, and always provided words of encouragement. If we have any more children, I would love to have LeNay for labor and delivery as well. You will not regret the investment in yourself and your family by hiring LeNay – she is a treasure!
It was truly a blessing to work with LeNay! I knew she would be a great resource for me during my pregnancy, but I couldn’t even begin to fathom what an amazing support she would be during labor/delivery for myself and more importantly my husband. Any anxiety that either of us had was instantly put at ease with her constant encouragement. We could not and would not have wanted to have welcomed our son without her!
LeNay is an amazing doula! She is very kind and caring. She provided so much support before, during, and after my sons birth. At first I didn’t think I needed a doula, but after thinking about it, I decided I wanted someone, in addition to my husband, by my side to help me through the birth of our first child. I am so glad we made the decision to hire her, I know for a fact that if she wasn’t there, my birth would have been way more stressful. Her calm nature kept me calm. The nurses are in and out, but having LeNay by my side the entire time made me feel less stressed as well. When I first got there, I requested pain management drugs, but after a bit, I realized I didn’t need them. I truely believe that your mindset has a lot to do with how you interpret pain. I believe staying as calm as I could be during the birth made all the difference in the world! I will definitely hire LeNay again for any future births!
“LeNay was a wonderful addition to our family’s birth experience. She holds a remarkable balance of competency and warmth, so often difficult to find. Because I was already having a midwife deliver our baby at a birth center, I wasn’t certain I needed to hire a doula; I am SO GLAD we did. She brought the calm and direction needed, especially during a difficult transition. LeNay has a special ability to make you feel you are the only person in the world.
Thank you for blessing our family in ways you’ll never know! XO”
How do I even begin to explain LeNay, This woman is incredible! she is supportive, patient, extremely knowledgeable, respectful, and just as sweet as can be! She is very intentive to what you desire for you birth and is determined to make those requests a reality anyway she can. The love and support I received from her was beyond words. She empowers women and is always reasurring that you know what’s best for you and your baby and to trust your morherly instinct. Every birth is beautiful no matter how a baby is brought into this world! I can’t recommend her enough! She has been such a blessing to me and my family. LeNay is more than a doula, she is a friend and will now and forever hold a very special place in my heart.
“When I found out I was pregnant, I didn’t know where to start. My midwife recommended a few Doula’s and LeNay was one of them. After looking at LeNay’s website first, I didn’t even bother looking at any other Doula as an option. I knew she was the one I wanted to work with. The one thing that stood out was her faith. I knew I needed a Doula that would have God as the center of the experience and LeNay provided that from start to finish. She constantly filled me up with positive, godly affirmations that truly prepared me for a beautiful birth. I was never scared. I knew and believed that my birth was going to be amazing because she was helping me believe it to be true. And it WAS! I couldn’t imagine anyone else present during my labor / birth. I am so grateful God brought her into my life. I would strongly recommend LeNay to EVERY mom!”
“The first word that come to mind when I think about LeNay is love. She has so much love that just pours out of every part of her body. Having LeNay be apart of the birth of our daughter is an experience I will never forget. She was so supportive and my husband and I never had to ask for anything, she just knew what we both needed! She had such a positive energy and compassion when I needed it the most. I had a natural child birth at a birth center and when I hit my wall and thought I could no longer go through it, I remember hearing her calming voice encouraging me and husband. She always had suggestions of what to try for comfort and reminded me to breath and relax when my contractions were the hardest and she had water with a straw for me between contractions! I felt like a queen with LeNay at my side. She massaged me to help me relax and held a bucket when I was sick. She took over when my husband needed to rest from being exhausted so he could be there refreshed the moment our little blessing was born. She stayed after our daughter was born and made sure I had something to eat and drink and also made me a delicious smoothie! She followed up with me the very next day and set a date to come see how we were doing as a new family of 4 and how my recovery was. LeNay was worth her weight in gold before, during and after our labor. She was also easy to get a hold of and always there when I needed support. She made sure that my husband was always involved with everything. She was amazing with our eldest daughter as well. She is still there as a fellow mama that I can reach out to…and our daughter is now 3 months old! Thank you, LeNay for being you and for helping my husband and I bring our beautiful daughter, into this world. We love you!”
“I was so happy with LeNay as my doula and would absolutely recommend her to anybody and everybody! I LOVED how she was so sensitive to me getting the birth that I wanted; no judgment; just support and encouragement. I was massively impressed by how detailed she was, and how much she was willing and able to do for my husband and me before, during, and after the birth! It meant the world to me that she was able to capture the moments (both through journaling and photography) that I missed during birth; and I knew I would miss (this was my 3rd birth). My husband was wonderfully supportive too, but with LeNay also being a mom, she had more “tools in her tool belt” than he did on how to help me through the birthing process; after all, not every birth is the same! Our nurses were also wonderful, but we weren’t their only patients. LeNay was able to stay with us the entire time, and there is immeasurable comfort in that. Then, reliving it all with her later (minus the struggle) was such a joy to me! I’ve honestly never met anybody as sweet and encouraging as her, but what sets her apart from the rest is her steadfast faith in Jesus and knowing what a true miracle these babies are to us; gifts from the Lord!”
“Having LeNay as my doula changed the way I looked at birth. Instead of being scared I felt confident. It was because of LeNay that i had the strength to move through a powerful birth. From feeding me spoonfuls of honey to checking in and supporting my husband- she did it all. We were incredibly blessed to have had her as our doula ❤”
“Lenay is an incredible doula. She is very thorough and supportive and was present throughout my entire pregancy — her texts and check-ins with resources and encouragement always came at a time when I needed it most. When I met Lenay I was immediately impressed by her breadth of knowledge, her character and her genuine caring nature. I knew that with her support I could achieve my goal of having an unmedicated labor, and I did! During my labor she was always ready with ideas to cope with the pain and provided incredible support for me and my husband in my over 24+ hr labor! She went above and beyond and stayed with me when my new daughter was whisked away to the NICU and my husband had to leave as well. I felt so safe, supported and confident about labor and delivery with her by my side. It is clear that Lenay pours her heart and soul into her work as a doula. I am so grateful to have met her. I love that we share our Christian faith and I was able to connect with her on a spiritual level as well. I have no doubt that I will have her as my doula for all my future births. I highly recommend her to any mom-to-be. Lenay is strong, caring and a true advocate for her clients. She is one of the most genuine and kind people I know! Not only was she my doula for my first birth but I now consider her a dear friend. If you are looking for a great doula, one who will care for your heart, body, and soul – look no further!!”
