Dear Parents-to-be

My name is Lesley, and I am a Registered Early Childhood Educator.  In my academia time, I learned at large amount of transferable and applicable skills: child development, diversity, developmental norms, confidentiality, family dynamics, partnerships with parents, active listening, advocacy, working collectively with multiple people for a common goal, curriculum planning and more.  This learning lead me to some women who inspired me to become a birth worker.

I am very excited to be starting a new career as a Birth Worker, supporting Moms, babies and families, in the journey of life, now in pregnancy, birth and early postpartum.  I have taken my Labour Doula Training & Mentor Program and Postpartum Doula Training where, I have successfully completed my in class part of training.  Now I am working towards my certification as a Doula.

Personally, I have experience in hospital settings births, as well as having the gift of witnessing and honoring one little life in a stillbirth.  Most importantly, I am willing and able to put my own views aside to assist you in having the experience in the birth process in your own way; knowing that sometimes it becomes a plan "B".

I would love to experience working with mothers who engage in home births and spiritual/religious.  I am open-minded to everyone individuals right to be blessed with the addition of a new family member.  At this present time, I am working with a family who is holding a naming ceremony on the seventh day after birth.  This is a first time experience for me, and I am truly honoured to be able to share the experience.

May all your sacred dreams come become a reality,
– Lesley Cressman, RECE
