Lennie Anderson CD(D0NA) Birth Doula
Hi. My name is Lennie Anderson. I am a DONA certified birth doula in Sundre, Alberta, Canada. My business name is Exceeding Expectations Birth Doula Services. I have trained both in Canada and New Zealand, and have attended a number of births in both countries. I am currently training to be a Childbirth Educator (prenatal class teacher) with CAPPA. I am the mother of 3 children and grandmother of 10. I enjoy gardening, meeting new people, and love quilting. I am passionate about labour and birth, as well as teaching comfort measures. I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching under the supervision of CBE’s at both Tui Ora and Parents Centre in New Plymouth, New Zealand. I can teach you some focus and relaxation techniques, show you how to work with your contractions, and offer you consistent support for as long and as much as you like. This is your baby, your birth experience, and I would be pleased to use my skills to help you have the birth you want, remembering that your safety and baby’s safety is paramount. I would be pleased to meet with you and show you what I do, and explain a little more in depth why hiring a doula is a good choice for you, your partner, and your child. I can show you and your coach coping skills to deal with labour contractions which can lead to smoother birthing. I would also be very interested in discussing your birth plans and help you to prioritize what is important to you. My passion and my dream is that every woman will have the birth that leaves her feeling empowered and in control.
