Labor Support and Birth Doula Services

Lauren's full Birthing Guidance package offers two prenatal appointments, the birth, and two postnatal / postpartum appointments. For the entirety of your pregnancy, she will draw on my knowledge and experience to provide emotional support, physical comfort, and communication. At your birth, she will remain in contact with the medical staff to make sure you have the information you need to make informed decisions during labor. She will provide reassurance and perspective to you, make suggestions to help labor progress, and help with relaxation, massage, positioning, and other techniques for comfort.

Postpartum Doula Services

Lauren will provide evidenced based information on things such as infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from birth, mother–baby bonding, infant soothing, and basic newborn care. She is there to help a new family in those first days and weeks after bringing home a new baby. For an additional fee, she can prepare and cook meals for your family as well. Please inquire for additional information regarding postpartum meal preparation.

Yoni Steaming and Fertility Awareness Mapping

Yoni Steaming, also known as Vaginal Steaming, is an ancient herbal treatment, respected by traditional healers across the globe. Yoni is Sanskrit for the word “womb” or “vagina.” The treatment is used for a variety of reasons: boosting fertility, easing PMS symptoms, increasing libido, balancing vagina PH, preventing dryness, soothing hemorrhoids, reducing ovulation cramps, PCOS, PID, PMDD, and so much more.

Testimonials

Being at Lauren's home studio, is like visiting your best friend. She herself is so welcoming and warm, offering you tea from the moment you walk in. I had heard of yoni steaming and had been interested in trying it. Lucky enough for me, she is right down the street from where I am! I was so excited to see the location and head over while my son was in school. The steam itself was so relaxing, I slept so well that night, and felt so mellow during the entire session. Lauren is very informative and has a wealth of knowledge regarding all of the herbs she used for my steam. I am now a regular and see Lauren 2-3x a month.

Melissa is a true skincare genius. I have been going to her for over a decade, and would not trust anyone else with my skin. She is so gentle, but thorough, she addresses every skin concern I have, and makes thoughtful product recommendations. When I leave her office, my skin is radiant! I get compliments on how "dewy" I look, and am often told my skin is "glowing!" I look forward to my monthly facial with Melissa and will be a loyal customer to her forever!

Jennifer Orsini

I could not have gone through my birth and first week postpartum without Lauren. I was so uncomfortable in my pregnancy and wanted to have the baby early so badly. Lauren came over 5 days before my due date to help me with some excercises to get the baby in position and literally one minute after we finished, my water broke! She was an incredible support during my labor and for the first week after the baby was born, helped immensely at home with the baby and my older boys.
