Lauren is amazing! I did not have a doula for the birth of my first child and it was a traumatic experience, so I thought I would try a doula for the birth of our second child. It was the best decision I made. Lauren is so easy to get along with and is so knowledgeable and professional! She was aware of my goals and supported them so beautifully! She said and did all the right things at the right times throughout my labor and delivery. She is a wonderful advocate and an encouraging presence. Because of Lauren’s knowledge, skills, and calming presence, I was able to achieve an unmedicated birth! Lauren always made herself available before, during, and after labor & delivery. If we are blessed with another child, we will definitely work with her again! Thank you, Lauren!

I can’t say enough about how amazing Lauren is. As first time parents she helped us navigate all the choices and decisions we could possibly have to make throughout pregnancy and labor and delivery. She is a wealth of knowledge and provides you with current research and data to make an informed decision. She 100% respects the decisions you and your partner make regarding your birth plan. We had our baby in the middle of a January snow storm and she was such a calm presence admist the chaos. She was available via phone from the start of my labor and answered all our questions as things progressed. When it came to labor and delivery, Lauren was amazing. It was such a calm environment during delivery. She worked beautifully with the nurse during labor and delivery and it was such a positive experience. Even the nurse commented later in the day how great it was working with Lauren! The two of them worked so well together and it was an experience that I look back at with such appreciation. She took great videos and photos during delivery and it was so precious to have! We will absolutely be asking Lauren to support us with our next baby. Highly highly recommend working with Lauren!

Lauren was such a gift to our family. From our first meeting, to the natural birth of our daughter, she made the experience so amazing. She eased so many worries, and was an integral part of our birth team. We cannot imagine what our experience during the birth would have been like without her there. If anyone is trying to determine if hiring Lauren is worth it, the answer is yes. As a father in this experience, she was unbelievably helpful during our 24 hour labor, allowing me opportunity to update family, eat, and take short, much needed breaks. Having the extra pair of hands and support was so important.

Lauren was so incredibly helpful to have on my birth team! My husband and I are first time parents and had so much to learn when it came to pregnancy and the birthing process. She gave us confidence through knowledge going into this life changing process, and we simply could not do it without her. My labor was a quick one, so much so that my own doctor did not make it to the birth. Lauren was the one who helped the young nurse deliver our baby and we could not have done it without her! She was truly the biggest blessing, and I would hire her all over again! Highly recommend.

Adding Lauren to my birth team was the best decision I could have made… I was taking classes for the Bradley Method, and while they helped me understand the process my body was about to go through, Lauren was instrumental in ensuring the labor and delivery process went as smoothly as possible. My hospital had a horrific administrative mix-up and had 3 charts open for me at once, and an L&D nurse who was sweet but could not readily identify my stages of labor (e.g., contractions, pushing) - Lauren took the reins with ease. I have very little memories of my L&D nurse’s involvement, but am well aware of the impact Lauren had - from coaching my husband to be involved in my unmedicated pain management, helping me get into different positions, and working with my husband to communicate with the nurses and doctors, to making the room more festive with peppermint scents and lights just so I could feel a bit more at ease (December baby). I’m so grateful for Lauren and highly recommend making her a part of your birth team!

Lauren was the BEST decision I made in my birth plan! I was hoping and planning for a VBAC and she was so instrumental in my success. She communicated so well with the rest of the care team at the hospital, took such great care of me, and was so knowledgeable. She came to me at the hospital directly after birthing with another mom in another hospital. And despite not having any sleep, she showed up and gave us 110%. We are forever grateful for her and I will recommend her a millions times over.

Lauren was the doula that aided in my redemptive, unmedicated VBAC. Her knowledge, compassion, and endurance are unmatched. From the moment I spoke with her on the phone, I knew I wanted her support at my birth! I’m so glad that I followed up and was able to rely on her in those testing moments. Lauren is a beautiful soul, incredible worker, and has a genuine connection to The Lord. If that’s something you’re looking for— call her. She was irreplaceable in my birth story and I’m grateful to call her a friend even afterwards.

My husband and I had the privilege of having Lauren support us during the birth of our son, and I couldn't be more grateful for her. Throughout the entire experience, she was so supportive and knowledgeable. Having her on our team gave me the ability to trust my instincts and be confident in my decisions. Her dedication and genuine care for her clients was so apparent throughout the whole process; I always looked forward to our conversations and was excited to have her with us on such a special day. Lauren was such a blessing to us, I can’t recommend her enough!

Lauren was such an asset to have on our birth team. She was a wealth of information while I walked through my first pregnancy and she was literally a godsend during labor and delivery. She was there every step of the way for every moment and for every question I needed answered. If you are trying to decide if Lauren is the doula for you let me just say, SHE IS! She is so sweet, kind and compassionate. She’s extremely knowledgeable and just and amazing woman all around. It also says speaks volumes that my husband (who originally was hesitant about hiring a doula) insists on having Lauren on our birth team for any future pregnancies because she was so helpful to him as well. She is absolutely wonderful and you will not regret it if you choose Lauren as your doula.

Lauren was absolutely wonderful to work with. My husband and I decided pretty last minute, about 36 weeks that we wanted to hire a doula to support me during labor. Lauren quickly met with us in our home to discuss my birth preferences. She was so friendly and calm, and I quickly knew I wanted her to assist us with the birth of our son. She was supportive and helpful during our experience at the hospital. I absolutely recommend hiring a doula of it’s something you are considering. I highly recommend Lauren, as she was so helpful and encouraging thought the whole experience.

My husband and I selected Lauren as our doula for the birth of our first child -- we are so happy that we did! Lauren was incredibly helpful in the months leading up to pregnancy. She provided recommendations and resources for us to determine our birth preferences and was a valuable sounding board when I was diagnosed with a high-risk pregnancy condition that required an induction -- and, consequently, a complete re-think of those preferences. 

During my actual induction and labor, Lauren was an invaluable support person for both me and my husband. From bringing string lights to make the delivery room cozy, to guiding us through exercises during the unmedicated portion of my labor, to fetching water, to helping us determine the "next right step" when my labor stalled, we cannot imagine not having had Lauren as part of our pregnancy and birth journey.
