Speaker Sheet


Thank you for your interest in Lesly Federici RN, BA

If you are looking for a professional to speak to your organization or program about childbirth, Lesly Federici can provide inspiration and a vibrant presentation on preparing for childbirth to your participants. Ms. Federici’s mission is to decrease fear circulating childbirth and replace it with normalcy and confidence with a strong focus on self-calming  methods involving the mind/body relationship for “labor pain” management. . Ms. Federici believes childbirth education should be routinely available to women outside hospital environments to ensure learning about birth as a non-medical, normal, natural, manageable physiological event.

Ms. Federici believes mind/body techniques should be the first methods used for labor “pain” management before using medications. They are effective and have the ability to enhance the quality of birth experiences for mothers emotionally and physically. Lesly also believes when women are reminded of their innate birthing skills and encouraged to use them, women birth with intuitive knowledge and instinctual know-how.  Ms. Federici is available for:

  • Lectures
  • On site employee education
