Desiree was the best birth coach I could have asked for! She made me feel completely okay even when there were potential complications with my pregnancy. She did research about things I wasn't sure about, attended medical appointments when I needed extra support, and was exactly what I needed through the entire birth process. She also managed to take some killer photos and compiled a vid for me after baby was born. I definitely recommend!

Desiree has been the most amazing support through the hardest experience of my life. I lost my son in April, and Desiree helped so much I'm not even sure how to put it into words. She planned his funeral and did an amazing job being the director. She took all the stress off of me, all I had to do was survive. Desiree was able to access information that authorities wouldnt tell me, and was the only support that was there when they said they'd be there, she was and still is my voice when I feel like I'm being brushed off pr ignored by authorities. She is all around a beautiful human and a fantastic doula.

Desirée is absolutely amazing at what she does. She is an extremely friendly goal orientated doula. My first pregnancy and birth were traumatic, I did not feel heard what so ever by the doctors, and ended up with a c-section, which i was not happy about. When I got pregnant with my youngest there was no second thought about it, I needed a doula and who better than Desirée. She became my voice when dealing with doctors and throughout the whole birthing process. I wanted a v-bac and natural birth. She made all those very clear and was the most supportive person I had on my team. Her friendly demeanor and caring attitude made a world of a difference in the whole process. I highly recommend Lean On Me Doula Services to anyone looking for a Doula. If ever I have another child, Desirée would be my first call.

About Me

My name is Desirée (she/her) I am a Cree-Métis Birth and Postpartum Aunty/Doula and the founder and lead Doula at Lean On Me Doula Services.

As a mother myself, I know it takes a village to raise families and I believe that supporting lifegivers to have their births, their way, gives the birthing person back the confidence and dignity that is so often taken away when they aren't heard and encouraged, this is what fuels my life long love of all things baby.  Supporting families during pregnancy, birth and the 'fourth trimester' is my calling and I am blessed to do be able to do this . 

When I am not supporting other lifegivers and their families I Spend my time having big and small adventures of all sorts with my son William, my partner JP and our three fur babies.

 I have been providing labour, postpartum and breastfeeding support for over 10 years. In 2018 I did my Birth Doula training with DONA International. I am currently training with H.E.R.B.A.L as a Peer Lactation Counselor. I plan on learning all I can in this life and hope to still be doing what I love till I am old and wrinkly. I am honoured to be a part of your most intimate days.
