Leslie attended a homebirth with me as a pregnancy massage...

"Leslie attended a homebirth with me as a pregnancy massage therapist in what turned out to be a surprise-twin delivery. Her strength, depth-of-knowledge, and skill throughout the entire long labor was a vital piece in a successful and smooth delivery. Her combined gifts of touch and encouragement led the mother through portals of transformation, as labor and birth will do to those willing to be transformed. Leslie is a rare gem!"
