Meet our Doula, Lauren Aardema Borrego

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 am additionally a Postpartum Doula, and offer support to every family, with trainings in breast/chest feeding, swaddling, postpartum recovery, and more.  I believe in informed consent for all families and provide families with the appropriate resources to feel confident going into labor and transitioning into parenthood.
