Jacqulyn Nolan-Needham

Today was our last session with our incredible postpartum doula. It's hard to imagine what life would have looked like without her unconditional love, support, honesty and omelets. She has been my lifeline. Being a new mom, in a new town, away from friends and family has been hard. Miss Lauren has been there to hold my hand, let me cry, answer a bajillion questions, bring me Starbucks, cuddle Eli while I take a shower, make sure I eat, help with laundry, teach me how to wrap and wear Eli safely, fix our car seat, reassure my breastfeeding journey, inspire confidence in my new mom skills... and the list goes on and on. I am so grateful to call this beautiful woman full of unicorn magic, my friend, my sister, my tribe. Lauren... there are not enough words... thank you... with our entire hearts... for helping us on the greatest adventure we have known. We love you, like crazy!

Lauren made mine and my family's life so much easier and enjoyable coming home from the hospital. As a first time mom it was intimidating caring for my baby without a lot of experience with kids but she helped give me direction and confidence. Very down to earth, nurturing and assertive when needed. I would completely recommend her services to anyone!

Lauren was my doula with my first pregnancy. She did an amazing job answering any questions I had during my pregnancy and was with me through my entire labor. Unfortunately, I was restricted to the hospital bed during the last few hours of my labor, but Lauren did everything in her power to make sure I was comfortable through each contraction. After I gave birth, the doctors took almost an hour stitching me up and she never left my side. I couldn't have made it through the process without her. She is blessed with the ability to be there for her people. 

I so wish I could have her be with me this pregnancy, but I live in California now. She has been available to answer some questions I have had this time around too. I love her so much and I know any momma that gets to work with her will feel the same.

My husband was deployed when I had my baby girl and the only person who was there for me is Lauren griffin from the time I was pregnant till I gave birth . She make sure that the doctor and nurses respect my wishes not to mention keeping my husband updated on how I was doing. I'm so grateful she was there for me and can't ever repay her for kindness. She was born to be doula and to hear she answering her calling make so happy and proud of her. If Im pregnant again I'm flying her back here in Jacksonville. Thank you for all you did for me Lauren:)

Lauren has been a great help in the past 3 months.  She began working me before my son was born.  We discussed the benefits of baby wearing as well as some of the technique.  Her spirit is infectious.  She is so excited about baby wearing that I was excited to give birth to my child and strap him on.  

Once my son was born, Lauren came to my home to help me with front wrap cross carry - a great beginner carry for newborn and mom.  She also brought carriers for me to try out.  I was able to determine which carrier would be a good carrier in my price range and to my liking.  I felt encouraged to try the wraps and feel each one out.  

Each session with Lauren has been a learning experience.  I have learned about her journey as a mom and a doula.  It has been uplifting to hear someone encourage me as a mom.  Before my son was born she was cheering me on for the next stage.  After my son was born, she cheered me on for our great accomplishment.  She is also very loving and genuinely interested in her clients and their families.  

I am so glad that I met Lauren.  The opportunity to have met her has been priceless.  As someone who previously knew very little about doulas, I now understand the benefits that they provide to new moms and seasoned moms alike.
