Becky Leonard, CLEC, CD(DONA)
Becky Leonard discovered her passion for pregnancy, labor & delivery, and postpartum support after delivering her two amazing babies-Charlee Marie in 2008 and Samuel Cash in 2010—and providing guidance to family and friends who were also on the “baby train.” She noticed that the more time she spent with these incredible and inspiring women and babies, the more she felt called to support women through their own extraordinary journeys.
Becky achieved her Certified Lactation Education Counselor (CLEC) certificate through UCSD and is a Certified Doula through DONA. She is also a trained childbirth educator through the International Childbirth Educator Association(ICEA). Based in Southern California, she teaches pre-natal breastfeeding classes, provides doula support during labor & delivery, and coaches women through postpartum breastfeeding. Becky also graduated from the prestigious Doula Internship Program through South Coast Midwifery. Something near and dear to Becky is being a part of the Operation Special Delivery team who serve as doulas for military mamas whose partners are either serving abroad or who have lost their lives during the pregnancy. Another incredible outreach opportunity for Becky is volunteering at Harvest Home, a residential program that supports homeless pregnant women and their babies. At Harvest Home, Becky has the opportunity to teach the mama’s prenatal breastfeeding and offer them post partum support and guidance.
