Postpartum Services

Welcoming a new baby is an amazing time in a family’s life. It can also pose some challenges. Our support is available to you 24 hours a day. The Postpartum period is a precious time and you deserve exceptional care.

We chose to work with a doula for our twin pregnancy so we could have the best chance of the birth we envisioned. Upon meeting Lauren, we knew we wanted her as part of our birthing team. Lauren met with us to discuss labor, interventions, and postpartum care. We felt empowered during what could be a difficult process. 

I was admitted early due to preeclampsia, and Lauren helped me breathe and move through labor, and gave my husband support breaks as necessary. When I developed post-birth complications, Lauren stayed with me until I had stabilized so my husband could be with our premature babies in the special care nursery. 

After Lauren left she continued to check in with us both in the hospital and upon our return home.  We never felt alone during this entire process. Thank-you, you Lauren, for making our pregnancy, birth and after birth such an empowering experience!
