Birth & Postpartum Doula,
Letitia Gordon was born and raised in Texas. Her father is a United Methodist bishop, and her mother is a licensed Social Worker. Service to others is an ingrained attribute of hers.
She is a registered nurse working in Labor in Delivery at Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas with a previous background working as a clinical practice manager and researcher in a private psychiatrist’s office. Letitia has dual bachelor’s degrees in psychology and nursing and a master’s in psychological sciences with an emphasis in development from birth to 3 years and health psychology. Letitia’s call to nursing happened shortly after finishing her master’s degree with a trip to the Congo where she had the opportunity to do mission work in a maternity home and pediatric nutrition clinic. She always says she thought she was there to bless others with medicine, food, water, and an additional set of hands but ended up blessed, reigniting a goal to work with women and children as a nurse.
Letitia is married to her hero, a Dallas Police Officer and is a mother to two active little boys. Both of her pregnancies and deliveries were opposite experiences. Her first born was the typical hospital birth while her second flipped her world upside down with preterm delivery at 30 weeks. Letitia attributes her growth as a healthcare provider and a mother to her experience as a NICU mom. As a working mom and former professional student, Letitia feels this is her niche. Supporting families through their initial postpartum experience while considering the future needs for returning to work outside the home or school is a focus of her practice.
In addition to being a Labor and delivery RN, Letitia is trained by CAPPA as a postpartum doula and holds an additional certification as a lactation counselor.
