What will empower you as a woman and your partner to make informed decisions in labor and birth? What will improve the outcomes of your birth enabling you to have the beautiful birth you so desire? A Doula will! 

As a Birth Doula, I support a mother emotionally, mentally, and physically. I am always encouraging and affirming her, every step of the way.

 

I help to narrate the labor using both imagery and positions and aid in reducing or eliminating any fear that a mother or her partner might have. I provide on hand, relevant information regarding any choices that are presented, enabling the parents to make their own confident decisions. I also provide lots of physical support.

 

I take on the responsibilities of making the birth environment as relaxing and conducive to labor and birth as possible; utilizing flameless candles, music, dim lights, and whatever else mother might desire.

 

 

 

I offer customizable service packages to fit your unique needs.

"Lauren was an integral part of our entire experience! We could not have been more thankful that she was there and feel that she was a big reason why our labor ended in a happy and healthy mom and baby."- Jen H.

 

 

Acountability

I adhere to the DONA International Standards of Practice which states  a doula does not perform clinical or medical tasks such as taking blood pressure or temperature, fetal heart tone checks, vaginal exams etc. Rather as a doula I provide physical support in the true sense of the word. I can be the one that the mother can lean on, literally.  I provide massage, counter pressure , fan you, and place a cool or warm wash cloth or rice sack but not medical care.

Single?

For women who are single and do not have a birth partner, a doula is that much more essential. During this vulnerable time every woman deserves the respect and loving support that is so needed.

Congratulations on your Pregnancy!

Your Partner

I never take the place of a mom’s partner or coach. Quite the opposite is true actually. It is my job to protect the all important role of the loving partner. I act as a go-for for the team. Being the one to handle all the little details during that time such as fetching/preparing food and drink, retrieving comfort items (pillows etc), taking pictures, updating friends and family, etc.. This enables the couple to remain face to face and to never be separated during this intimate and exciting time.

Family & Friends

Some women wish to have friends or family at their labor, birth, or immediatley postpartum. I am excellent at involving these important members of your birth team.
