Hello! My name is Lauren and I'm a certified birth doula through Childbirth International as of May 2018. I decided to get into birth work because I've had 2 boys of my own (Maximus and Weston), am pregnant with my third, and I've found that I'm absolutely passionate about all things pregnancy and birth!
I fly easily and therefore can accept clients all over the world. I'm available to come teach or be your doula, just reach out to me and we can work something out!
Fall 2018, I'm going to be starting my nursing prerequisites so I can continue further down the path and become an RN and then a CNM. As soon as I supported my first client as a doula, I knew that I wanted to become a baby catcher and I'm looking forward to sharing my journey with everyone that I meet through BirthTube and the world of birth work. I have hopes of eventually being able to offer home births to my clients, as I'm passionate about letting the body do its own thing during birth and just being there to support mom and make sure everyone stays healthy!
In my "spare time," I really enjoy both reading and writing, as well as going camping with my husband and the kids. Living in Colorado means there are plenty of opportunities to get into the mountains and be outside! I also love swimming and being around the water, which is one of the reasons I chose to have a water birth with my 2nd son; I highly recommend it if you're a water sign like I am.
I believe in your ability to birth your baby! I'm here for support and love, but I know the body knows what its doing. Your labor team is there to support you and make sure you and baby stay happy and healthy through your labor. I'll work hard to make sure your needs are met!

Lauren wa great!
Lauren was my birth Doula for the birth if my 2nd child in June. She was very personable to work with, knowledgable on best practices and was so supportive of my natural birth plan the whole way. Lauren went out if her way to meet me according to my schedule and she was dedicated and so very supportive throughout the entire labor and birth process. So glad I had her on my team to bring my son into the world.
Support for me and husband!
Lauren was amazing and super supportive during my long labor! I knew I wanted an unmedicated delivery and I felt very supported by Lauren. My husband also was so appreciative of Lauren and made his job easier as well. I am so thankful that Lauren was there for all of us!
I can’t speak HIGHLY enough of my experience with Lauren. When I found out I was pregnant with baby #3 I knew I wanted a Vaginal birth more than anything. On the suggestion of my midwife I found myself last minute trying to find a Doula. From my first meeting with Lauren we clicked. She is amazing. When the big day happened I found myself so nervous, I’ve on experiences surgical births before. The hospital staff was full of negativity and judgement for attempting a Vaginal birth after 2 c sections. Lauren remained the calm I needed. She reminded me I can do this! She was there every step of the way. I’m positive she was one of the reasons my VBA2C was sucessful!
