BIRTH AND POSTPARTUM DOULA, + YONI STEAM FACILITATOR
Born and raised in Los Angeles, I grew up in the Conejo Valley and went on to attend UCLA and receive my Bachelors in Women Studies. I am additionally certified by the Peristeam Hydrotherapy Institute as a Vaginal Steam Facilitator and work with women who are trying to achieve a healthier period, or trying to conceive, as well as with women who are looking for postpartum recovery through steaming. I have attended nearly a dozen trainings ranging from Introduction to Child Birth, Breastfeeding Basics, Newborn Basics, Comfort Measures with L&D Nurses, and more. Over the last seven years, I have developed a deep passion for birth, postpartum care, herbal holistic practices, aromatherapy, crystal healing, and women's health. As a Birth Doula, I am privileged to help women and their partners make their pregnancy and birth as positive and healthy as possible. I have experience with unmedicated births, medicated births, VBAC births, and cesarean section births. I have volunteered with non-profit organizations, as well as worked with high-profile clients. My expertise is diverse and dependable. I've attended both homebirths and hospital births, ranging from Ventura County to Los Angeles. I offer support to every family, regardless of what their birth plan looks like. I believe in informed consent for all families and provide families with the appropriate resources to feel confident going into labor.

YONI STEAMING + POSTPARTUM RECOVERY
Holistic Healing for the Source
Mothering the Mother
After a very traumatic first birth, I knew I wanted to do things differently with my second baby. Lauren was my Doula and coached me throughout the birth, offering support with a tender hand-squeeze, or words of reassurance. With the help of Lauren and my family, I was able to finally have the birth I desired.
Lauren is so knowledgeable on women's health and holistic practices, she has helped me tremendously! I started to see results after just 2 steam sessions! Not only that, but her space is so calming and nice. I would highly recommend yoni steaming for any women thinking about giving it a try.
Lauren offers invaluable attention and kindness as a Doula. She is thoughtful, sweet natured, and intelligent. I appreciated the holistic approach she offered during postpartum healing. I felt I healed significantly quicker than expected because I had her help during this pregnancy and postpartum period.
