Merry Meet To All My Visitors
Welcome To MoonDragon's Realm.

Please fix yourself a cup of herbal tea and relax. There is plenty to see, to learn, and to experience in MoonDragon's Realm.

Hello from Leather at
My name is Leather and am the sole owner of MoonDragon Birthing Services located in Salem, Massachusetts. I am a Direct-Entry (DEM) Homebirth Midwife (Retired), a Holistic Health Practitioner, a Reiki Therapist, an Ordained Minister, a Pagan Priestess and Matriarch of the Fam-Trad Clan of the MoonDragon. I am also a Notary Public for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. I am a mother, grandmother and a great-grandmother.

I have been a homebirth midwife since 1979 and working in the health field since 1975. I have an educational and experience background in the medical arts, science, biology and psychology. I am always a student and a teacher in life, always learning something new along the way from every person I meet and wanting to share what I have learned with others. Knowledge is a wonderful thing and it is never wasted, especially when it comes to your health and well-being. I have always enjoyed writing, art, and doing research on various subjects. This is how this website came to be. I celebrated my 19th Anniversary of being online with my website (1996-2015). The website has grown from a few pages to nearly 2,500 pages and is still growing. I always have several research projects I am working on. These will be added as they are completed or ready to share.

Please, feel free to wander and enjoy yourself. This site is constantly being worked on, edited, and added to. If you should happen to come across a link to a page that is not there yet or an inactive product link, please do not become frustrated. I am updating pages and links, a long process, to say the least. I am currently working on several pages that will be uploaded to the website in the near future. Links have already been put in place for several of these pages. I appreciate all the support I have received from my website visitors over the last several years. This has helped me to keep this website going.

Please visit and support the various affiliate programs found throughout this website. You will find many of them on this page as you scroll down. These advertisers offer a variety of wonderful products while they are helping us to financially support and maintain this website. I have been very selective about joining affiliate programs and only wish to bring my visitors quality products at reasonable prices. Many of these products I have used myself and have used in my MoonDragon Birthing Services homebirth midwifery practice. Please help me to support this website by offering donations through PayPal. I appreciate those who have financially donated to Please continue to help keep this information free to those that are searching for it. Every donation helps, no matter how big or how small.
