Doula Support

lf_work-with-me-images_doulaI am honoured to work as a doula! It is where I feel most at home and is without a doubt my ultimate calling, to be with women during birth.

I offer women and their partners physical, emotional & spiritual support and guidance throughout pregnancy.

I am with you from the beginning of labour right through until after your baby’s first feed, or thereabouts.

Included in my services is birth education, guidance on how to prepare, emotional and spiritual support and really anything that arises that needs to be addressed, healed and worked through.

I include 2 prenatal home visits and 1 postnatal home visit, plus being on call 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after baby’s due date. I help to navigate the many options that arise and I’m a close and trusted support throughout, bringing comfort and reassurance to both mother and her partner. I have worked as a doula for over 10 years and am passionate about creating this sacred continuity of care for mothers and their partners and their baby’s.

I trust in women’s ability to birth, and I believe that being supported and held in a sacred space creates wonderfully positive birth experiences.

My fees are currently $3000.00

Here is what some recent doula clients had to say…

lf_testimonial-images_monique “Lauren was a reassuring embrace for my husband & I during my labour; warm, nurturing & supportive. Like in an embrace she held us together & made us strong together. She was the support we both needed to make our labour an experience that was so special.Lauren exceeded all my ideas of what her role would be, as she does in each of her yoga classes & all she offers. Her personal touch to all she does is not only authentic & professional, but also heartfelt & like no other that I have experienced.

I cannot recommend enough pursuing the experience you hope to engage in with Lauren. You will not regret it & you will not have another opportunity like that which Lauren offers.”

– Monique Blackwell ‘Little Things Yoga’ 



“Lauren was my doula for my second pregnancy and it was such a rewarding and loving experience.  Throughout the entire pregnancy Lauren was available for me to offer support physically at yoga classes, and emotionally through regular meetings and chats on the phone.  Lauren was open with me and positive during discussions regarding our hopes for the birth and through regular visits at our home, my husband also developed a warm relationship with Lauren, which was so important to me.  Felix’s birth was such an incredible experience and Lauren was amazing every step of the way.  She was with me as soon as I felt that I wanted her there and stayed until my new baby boy had fed and was settled, even though it was well into the early hours of the morning.  She was consistent, thoughtful, loving and encouraging throughout the pregnancy, labour and birth.Lauren has a wonderful gift.  Her reassurance, understanding and sensitivity is priceless in aiding women to make the transition into motherhood.”

lf_testimonial-images_paloma “I was lucky enough to have Lauren as my Doula at my birth, and she was amazing! She just knew what I needed without me having to say a thing. It takes a lot of pressure of the dad’s too! What I loved most was her positive encouragement.  I really had the best experience and result. All in all I don’t think there is anything else I could have done more to prepare myself for pregnancy and childbirth, physically and mentally. I couldn’t speak higher of Lauren and my experience.

– Paloma Rose


“Our daughter was breech and the labour resulted in a c-section. By the time I was pregnant with our son I really wanted to try a VBAC delivery. Lauren was the first and only person I wanted by my side for this (other than my husband!), so I was thrilled when she was happy to be our doula. Our son’s birth was quite honestly one of the most amazing experiences of my life and I really put this all down to Lauren. I can’t even describe how supported I felt having her with me, both during pregnancy and labour. She knew exactly what I needed at different times and held the space for me so incredibly, and we were lucky enough to be able to deliver him as a VBAC.

Only three years earlier I had felt so terrified about labour and birth, and I credit that shift to Lauren’s gentle, empathetic, heartfelt and open guidance. She truly has been a blessing in my life. ”
