Hi, I’m Jen LeClair!

  My pronouns are she/her 
I’m vaccinated. Fighting Covid-19 together

I’m a mama and I reside in the west end of Toronto with my daughter. It was during my own postpartum period I realised I want to support others during their pregnancy and transition into becoming families. I trained with DONA to become a birth doula in Vancouver, and became a certified doula with Bebo Mia after we re-located to Toronto. It is so important to me that you feel safe, comfortable and respected while in labour.

Your birth experience can be amazing!

It is just as important that you feel supported and validated during postpartum: the Fourth Trimester. I know firsthand how important the presence of a Doula can be. I love to see you feeling empowered and making the best decisions for yourself during labour and after the baby is born. I want to help to connect you with your village.

 I am certified and I am a member of the Association of Ontario Doulas. I’ve taken extensive training in full spectrum services including Fertility Specialist and Abortion Support. I am trained in High Risk and Complicated Birth Support.

* When I’m not doing birthy things, I enjoy exploring Toronto and finding hidden gems with my daughter. We love biking together and making up stories during walks in High Park.

* It was after the birth of my daughter, along with the support of my doula, midwife and one of my dear friends (she is also a nurse) I fell in love with the idea of supporting women in birth. I felt so cared for and so well supported during her birth, that I often used my birth memory to help me fall asleep. 

* I believe that you deserve to be heard and have bodily autonomy during birth. I am devoted to learning more about your legal birth rights.

* I have assisted births at the birth center, many hospitals in Toronto and home births. 

* I will never turn down an americano or flat white. 

* When I was pregnant I took an amazing empowering yoga class. I joked that I could leave her studio and give birth on the street! Now as a doula, I teach my clients some of the exercises I learned from her, so you can also find your own intuitive coping movements for labour.

My goal is that you feel validated, respected and comfort. My commitment is to support your choices and teach you how to make them with evidence based information. My desire is that you feel loved.
