Hi, I'm Lauren.
I’m an adopted Londoner, originally from south west Scotland, but now firmly rooted in south west London. Over the past 10 years, I’ve had three very different boys, and a girl, in four very different ways - and the more time has passed the more I have realised how important the birth experience is to what kind of parents and family you become.
I didn’t know what a doula was when I had my babies so my aim is to be the doula I wish I’d had: a practical doula, providing support and guidance for parents looking for straightforward tips and solutions throughout the pregnancy, birth, and postnatal period.
I have completed training in aromatherapy, acupressure and massage for birth - as well as a course to help expectant parents work through previous trauma ahead of the birth - and will support, and help the birth partner to support, the birthing person using these techniques before and during labour.
I firmly believe that the perfect birth is one that the parents feel informed about and involved in no matter how far it might deviate from their original plan. Your doula is there to help make that happen.
