Tammy Leeper - Birth DoulaMy belief is that all expectant parents be fully informed on the options and choices regarding the birth of their child. Being a doula and offering caring, continuous support as well as offering resources and information is what I am passionate about. I have always been intrigued by pregnancy and childbirth and consider it an honor to be present when a baby is born.
