She visited with me afterward and comforted me when I needed it. We were planning a VBAC, and even though we did not have the birth we wanted, she was essential in making the situation the best that it could be.
I wish she could have been in the OR with me, but hospital policy wouldn't allow it.
She came into the recovery room and helped us establish breastfeeding (something that I hadn't been able to do in my previous birth).

Languages spoken: English I cannot say enough about Leslee Boldman - She is absolutely one of the most incredible people I have ever met.
So knowledgable and informative but also very caring and supportive.
She met with my husband and I several times while we made our decision about which Doula to choose.
Leslee, at the birth, provided physical and emotional support to me throughout labor.Leslee was both emotionally and physically supportive throughout the birthing process.Leslee exceeded our expectations and provided additional guidance after Elijah was born.Meeting with her just "clicked" for me from the beginning and having her as my doula was the smartest decision I made concerning my birth journey.She completely goes above and beyond what you would ever expect someone to do for you, your partner and your family - before, during and after the birth.She encouraged me to rest and stay hydrated, things that were far from my mind at the time but very important.
