My name is Lesley, I am a Registered Early childhood Educator and Certified Labour Doula. 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 new career as a Birth Worker, supporting Moms,
babies and families, in the journey of life, now in pregnancy, birth and early
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 7th 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, CLD
