Post eating the delicious made-with-love lactation cookie you brought over: I put baby down in the bassinet with your sleep tips. We couldn’t have done that without you!

Lauren Guarrasi is amazing! I love my birth story and everything went as I hoped it would and Lauren is to thank for a lot of it! She was an excellent support to not only myself but also to my husband and we felt more than equipped to handle anything the day threw at us knowing we had her on our team. She is so knowledgeable and made sure we were prepared ahead of time and even checked on us afterward- I’ve never felt so supported or prepared!

Lauren was such a sweet doula! She supported me when my plan changed dramatically, and I needed induced in the hospital instead of the birth center delivery I had planned. She is amazing!

Had an amazing experience working with Lauren as my birth doula! She is truly compassionate, empathetic, and advocates for her clients' best interests. Her presence is so warm and gentle and, at my birth, not only was she a comforting presence but she also helped ensure my doctors were checking in on me in a timely manner. Anyone would be lucky to have Lauren as their doula!

A visiting angel! Lauren was a wonderful support postpartum. Part of what makes postpartum a little overwhelming is the lack of time to keep up on everyday essential tasks. Lauren stepped in and cleaned my house, did our dishes, helped care for me and my children, and cooked us delicious, nutritious, organic meals. It made a world of difference in my postpartum experience! She is a lovely soul who is accepting and easy to be around - which is so important when you’re feeling emotional and vulnerable after giving birth. She held space for me to share my birth story and brought compassion and empathy to such an emotional experience. She’s an angel!
