Laurie attended both of my births. She was absolutely essential to a positive outcome. Had she not been present, I believe both of my births could have ended in c-sections. She supported me and my husband equally, educated us in not only birth, but nutrition and breastfeeding as well, among many other things. She is so kind heartedand truly cares for her clients. Laurie is very knowledgeable and skilled as a Doula. She goes above and beyond what most Doulas might. I cannot say enough positive things about Laurie.

I absolutely loved having Laurie Price as my Doula, knowing that she had a a ton of experience in birth/delivery and breastfeeding was so reassuring to me. She is very attentive to your needs in labor, and very respectful of your wishes. She followed me to Drs. Appointments as requested and followed up after my son was born as well. She answered all my calls and texts and many questions!  Looking forward to using her again for my daughter's birth in 2018!
