Birth Doula Work


I have been a birth doula in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2007.  I was called to this work at a very young age, after reading the book “The Red Tent”. I have been working in the field for 13 years and I am still constantly inspired by women and families who feel empowered and educated during pregnancy and birth.  I not only bring my experience of over 500 births to your care, but also my training as a midwife, bodyworker, childbirth educator and photographer.  I currently offer my doula services in a partnership with two other very experienced doulas, Britt Fohrman and Vanessa Norton. We’re confident that in working with a team of doulas you will feel supported and well resourced during your pregnancy, birth and postpartum experience.

Meet your two expert doulas, Lauren and Britt!

MONTHLY MAMMA CIRCLES

Our monthly mammas circles are exclusively for the pregnant moms in our practice. We gather to practice relaxation, meditate, play, and connect with other mammas and our babies. It’s really nourishing and fun, and allows us to deepen our relationship with you while giving you the chance to build relationships with other women on the same path. Both doulas are present for this circle.

CHILDBIRTH PREPARATION CLASS

In addition to the work that we do prenatally, we strongly suggest taking Rachel Yellin’s Hypnosis Based Childbirth Preparation Classes and listening to her Pregnancy Birth and Beyond Audio Program. The program will help prepare you and your partner for the most natural, conscious and empowering birth possible, while helping you develop and deepen a relaxation practice that will be crucial in your birth and also in your life as a parent. If you’d like to download her audio program, make sure to use the code “brittf” to save 20%!

INITIAL CONSULTATION

We offer a 45-minute complimentary Initial Consultation with you (and your partner, if you have one) at Britt's space in Bernal Heights. In this meeting we would discuss what you are looking for in your labor support and go into greater detail about our practice, approach and philosophy.
Feel free to get in touch with me and I’ll send out some potential dates and times to meet for a free consultation. If you have further questions, I’m happy to chat with you first over the phone as well.  My number is (415)990-8708.  Thank you!
