This review comes from a fathers side of the birth process.

Admittedly, I was unsure about us hiring a Doula at first, but, after going through the birth process with Tayler my wife and I couldn't be happier.

The aid, assistance, kind supporting words for my wife and I, along with some instruction for me on how to help during/and along the birth process was invaluable.

I know my wife enjoyed and valued the aid, expertise and knowledge as well, but seriously from the guys side, this is a no brainer.

Tayler is great, she will tell you how to help, she is a neutral party, she can jump in and give you a break, she teaches you things you didn't know you could do (both at the hospital and birthing center), she actively finds way to provide comfort for both the mother and father, and (I think most importantly) provided a calming presence until we needed the pump up that she also provided during birth. Having a person that could truly empathize with my wife during the birth process was phenomenal.

If we have another child, we would for sure be calling on Baby Bean Doula again. Thanks Tayler (and Lauren)!

We are so grateful we had Lauren’s support before, during, and after the birth of our son. It was my first birth, and having Lauren there to guide me through the process relieved a lot of stress and anxiety. Her knowledge of the process and the amenities available to us during the labor were extremely helpful. I was impressed by how well Lauren could read the room and knew when we needed more help, but also when it was a good time to give us space. Time is so bizarre during labor and without her documentation I wouldn’t remember half of it. I’m thankful to be able to look back on the experience to remember things that would’ve been lost otherwise. I would absolutely bring Lauren on board again if I have another pregnancy.

Lauren's motto "everyone deserves a doula" is absolutely true. I highly recommend Lauren for her professionalism, compassion, and growing bank of knowledge for pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum. Full of positive energy, it is easy to see that Lauren has a genuine passion for her doula work. My birth experience was greatly enriched by Lauren's support to both my partner and I pre and post birth. She was highly communicative, very fast, and gentle in all interactions. She helped me to prepare for the life changing event of birth and to also process it during the delicate first two weeks of new parenthood. Not uncommon, the birth went not quite as planned. All the better to have Lauren on our team to be present during a time of need when plans quickly changed. I think she is an incredible person who is great at what she does. My highest recommendation to have a doula support your birth experience and to choose Lauren.

We are so grateful to have had Lauren in our corner before, during and after the birth of our sweet new human!  My partner and I are brand new to the area, and getting to have Lauren by our side was like having a family member/friend in the room with us. Lauren was extremely comforting in times of uncertainty, and most importantly, always made sure our voices were heard. Being able to guide me through my contractions is reason alone why I’d hire her again! If you’re looking for a magical being to help assist you during one of the wildest rides of your life, look no further! We loved her calming demeanor, sense of humor(oh so needed), photographer skills(!), and the scared space she held for us. Lauren, thank you for being the friend I needed in a whole new world xoxo

Lauren is so attentive, non judgemental, communicative, funny, smart and extremely supportive. Everyone having a baby deserves a doula. I highly recommend Lauren! She was a vital person on our birth team.

Lauren is AWESOME! We hired her as our postpartum doula and my only regret is that we didnt book her for our birth as well. She made herself available to us for all types of support (from babies first bath to cesarean after care) and updated us with great information and encouraging words along the way!

Asking Lauren to be a part of our birthing experience was one of the few decisions during pregnancy that we never second-guessed. She was able to adapt to our perspective and help us before, during and after the birth as well as document the events during a highly emotional time. We would love to recommend her to anyone looking for a doula in Juneau.

We can't recommend Lauren enough! She provided birth and post-partum doula support for our family during the birth of our first babe. Throughout the entire process, Lauren was super receptive to our shifting needs. She fit in seamlessly with our hospital care team and advocated for our birth wishes, while playing a super active role in providing emotional and physical support during labor. Her outgoing nature and positivity made it easy to welcome her into our family and to quickly build trust as we worked with her to prep for the birth. She's also a wealth of information about growing kids, milestones, etc. If you're considering a doula, I highly recommend meeting with her!
