Leah- Tier 3

Leah Morrison is a birth doula, a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist, a Licensed Massage Therapist, and a dancer. Through her work in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy she became fascinated by birth and the profound impact it can have on both mother and baby. This ignited a spark in her to become a doula and provide the compassionate support needed for birth to live up to its potential to be an empowering, life-affirming event. She trained with Birth Arts International and DONA International and has been honored to offer her doula support to families all over NYC since then. As a doula, Leah helps you to sort through your options, develop a clear vision of your wishes for birth, build confidence and recognize your innate power to give birth. During labor, she provides a calm and constant reassuring presence, skillful hands-on support, and ensures that your voice is being heard. In the postpartum period, Leah includes an optional Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) session for baby and family. During this time, you are adjusting to a new sleep pattern and let’s face it - a whole new way of life! A BCST session offers an opportunity to slow down, calm your nervous system, resolve any stress that arose during or after the birth and go forward with a newfound sense of calm and clarity. Birth can be unpredictable. Leah’s goal is to nurture positivity within whatever transpires. She strives to bring mindfulness, calm and care to each moment, so that even if things don’t go as planned, you feel safe, supported, and empowered at all times.
