Kate Langlois

Lauren is a joy to work with. We were very touched by the highly individualized attention we received from her. She was thoroughly attentive to me while simultaneously to the needs of my husband and toddler son, and to our daughter before and after the birth. She has an impressive attention to detail and remembered all our large and small requests before, during and after the big day. I went through some bizarre things during my second pregnancy (especially a day of very real but "false-alarm" labor 15 days before the birth!) that I had never heard of before or knew were possible, but Lauren guided me through them confidently and with grace. When the actual birthday arrived she really shined as a supportive presence: by my side every step of the way but also very keenly knew the right moments to give my husband and I space to experience our sweet miracle. We truly felt lucky to have found her. Plus she took some amazing birth photos at my request! Thank you Lauren!
