I am Lauren, born and raised in the Kansas City Metro, married to my best friend, and mom to two busy little boys. Prior to becoming a mother, I spent my time in the world of social work and loved getting to make connections and support families through both challenging and happy experiences. When I was pregnant with my first baby, we made our doctor appointments as I knew I needed to do, but after just a bit a research we realized there was so much more we could learn and make decisions about regarding birth and postpartum care. We found individuals who supported, informed and empowered us to have an incredible birthing experience, on our terms. This was when I first started dreaming of helping to educate and support families through their life changing season of pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum. After the birth of my second son I decided to take the leap and begin this new, exciting journey of doula work. I am currently pursuing certification through DONA International.
