Lindsay H I am incredibly thankful that we found Lauren. She is warm, friendly, and knowledgeable without being overbearing. When we met a few weeks before my due date we talked about my hopes and expectations, and Lauren gave great suggestions to tweak my birth plan. Leading up to the delivery, we’d have email or text conversations after every doctor’s appointment—Lauren wanted to be kept in the loop, which made it seem like she really cared. Once I went into labor, Lauren texted me throughout the day while I was at home, suggesting things I could do to distract myself and positions I could try to alleviate the back labor I was having. Once we got to the hospital, Lauren immediately set to work helping me feel comfortable. She went to get a birth ball, kept my water filled, and suggested numerous positions to help alleviate the back labor. Lauren was a great presence, never overshadowing my husband, but providing a calm voice if it seemed like I was stuck in one position too long or getting overwhelmed. Lauren stuck with us through the delivery and stayed almost two hours afterwards to make sure I was comfortable before she left. I credit my successful unmedicated birth in large part to having Lauren with us. If you’re looking for a warm, sisterly doula, I highly recommend Lauren!
Samantha D Lauren was an amazing support for me throughout my pregnancy and labor/delivery. She also was a guide to my fiancé and mother who were present during labor and delivery. Any questions I had she either answered or found the answer. When I was just about to lose it she would suggest something new and it would be just what I needed. Lauren takes the time to get to know her clients and their support team. By doing this her presence is calm and helpful but not intrusive or pushy. My VBAC was made smooth and fear free thanks to her guidance
