Hi, my name is Leah Jackson and I am the Founder of Birth Is Beautiful.
Caring for others is a natural calling of mine that began when I was a child. I was only ten years old when I had my first official childcare job, looking after an infant, toddler, and two preschoolers on my own. Since then, I have supported over 300 families privately in roles including: Birth Doula, Postpartum Doula, Personal Assistant, Yoga Teacher, Music Healer, Early Childhood Educator, Au Pair, Mother’s Helper, Babysitter, Nanny, and more.
Every family I work with has different needs, so the support I offer is very personalized. I adapt my services to each individual in order to offer the highest level of care.
The doula service I offer is unique in Toronto in that I offer extended care beyond the first few months postpartum — extending well into childhood. Additionally, I have experience supporting a diverse array of clients including people of all nationalities, those who are in Toronto as “birth tourists”, and VIP clients who require top-notch, confidential care.
My core interests that make me who I am and my services unique include: singing, playing piano and violin, writing poetry, practicing yoga, meditation, Buddhism, gardening, swimming, travelling. I am an artist at heart with a love for life and especially nature. These are things I love to share with my families.
It is my honour to support families in the intimate way that I do. My goal is to live and breathe compassion so I can be the best doula I can be! It would be my pleasure to meet with you to discuss how I can bring peace and ease to your family life at home in the GTA or abroad internationally.
