I'm Leanna Mae. I've been passionate about health care since I was young. Drawn to midwifery in my teen years, I knew without a doubt I wanted to go into women's health care. My degree is in health sciences. Patient education is my niche. I love to teach. I love to watch people progress in their journey of knowledge and abilities. I'm here to partner with you and guide you in the learning process from fertility to weaning. I offer guidance and support as you practice your birth preparation. I enjoy teaching the span of reproductive health from fertility (understanding cycles and gyn health), family planning, prenatal wellness, birth preparation, postpartum care, and lactation.

One Day Workshops
Workshops are available in home to families in my service area (as pictured above).
Coping with contractions -- This comprehensive workshop teaches all of your pain management options from medicinal to natural to mindset. Whether you're planning a natural birth, definitely want that epidural, or even planning a scheduled c-section, you need information on this topic. You're going to have contractions no matter how you birth. Even with planning an epidural, you're going to have a good amount of contractions before you are to the point of being able to get that pain relief. The more coping techniques you know, the easier labor will be. $150 per class ~ This can be taught as a private class in home. If you have a group of friends, you can divide this $150 between up to 10 couples. If you get 10 couples together, that's only $15 per couple. You can also host a workshop and raise the full cost of the class divided between your guests giving the host a free class!
Birth Plans 101 -- If you want a birth plan but aren't sure where to start or how to make it sound legitimate, take a class with a doula! This one-day workshop will walk you through the different decisions you need to make before your birth, what your options are, and guide you in choosing which options are best for your family. $150 per class ~ This can be taught one-on-one or divided between up to 15 students/couples. This class can transform your birthing experience. It teaches you your options, what decisions you need to make, how to advocate for yourself, and how to form a birth team that is best for the birth you want. You'll leave with a printed birth plan packet to customize. Come together, bring some snacks, and learn your options along with science-backed evidence based practice.
Any other one-day topics? If you have a certain topic you'd like a workshop on, email me and we'll see about adding that to the options list.
I look forward to adding series of classes as well as teaching classes online :)
