Hi! I'm Leah, the face behind Sacred Moon Healing & your doula! Pregnancy and birth have always fascinated me. I remember YouTubing natural childbirth, alternative healing and overall questioning our modern standards of women's physical & mental healthcare in my early college years. Along my own personal journey to healing, I crossed paths with Ayurveda, which immediately resonated with me and so I began to dive deeper into studying and practicing these ancient traditions. I also began to notice an astonishing rise in the lack of postpartum care offered and its correlation to depression. So when I found out my sisters were pregnant (at the same time), I knew I wanted to support them in the best way possible! I spent time nourishing them in their early postpartum period, not quite knowing exactly what to do, just following my intuition. This was such a beautiful experience that I realized I wanted to become a certified postpartum doula and redirect my path. And that's when the two worlds of Ayurveda and postpartum care merged, bringing me to where I am today! I have had the honor of studying and receiving mentorship from one of the world’s leading natural mama & baby care specialists and advocate for women’s postpartum health, Sarva Blackwell of Inner Sun & Moon. It is such an honor to sit with new mamas as they recover from the incredible transformation of pregnancy and birth!
After practicing as an Ayurvedic postpartum doula for nearly three years, I became a mama myself. My daughter, Rue, passed unexpectedly in my womb and was born Earth side at 33 weeks. This experience has transformed me in every way possible. I was initiated into motherhood through the death of my daughter, but in turn it also made me feel more alive and inspired than ever. This experience is what sparked a passion for me to become a holistic birth doula and support women on their journey to birthing their babies, even if their babies are not meant to be earth side. Birth can still be a beautiful experience, one that should be honored and held sacred no matter what the pregnancy outcome may be. It is truly my honor to walk beside you throughout your pregnancy, birth and postpartum time no matter what comes up along the way. I will be there with every step you take guiding you with love, knowledge, nourishment and holding sacred space.
It is my passion to empower and educate women of all ages to step into their divinity through womb wisdom, subtle therapies & spiritual resilience. My offerings combine ancient & innate wisdom, while utilizing my credentials in the following areas: BS in Exercise Science & Kinesiology, certified Holistic Nutritionist, certified Ayurvedic Postpartum Doula, Yoni Steam Specialist, & RYT 200. I am also pursuing trainings in Craniosacral Therapy to further benefit the mamas I work with through helping restore musculoskeletal reintegration, emotional balance and pelvic health and also help alleviate the discomforts of newborn care and mothering.
I look forward to connecting with you on your journey to matrescence!
