Lauren Lieburn – Owner/Founder/Doula
As the oldest of six siblings, Lauren grew up in a family where pregnancy, childbirth, and babies were just a part of everyday life. Surrounded by nurturing, supportive women, Lauren learned the importance of “mothering the mother” and has unsurprisingly devoted much of her adult life to supporting women.
Lauren’s background includes 5 years as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, 15 years as an obstetric technician in a perinatal unit, and 5 years as an Emergency Medical Technician. As a mother of 5 children and a DONA-trained birth doula and ProDoula, and Pre-certified postpartum doula. She continues to strengthen her skills in supporting women and families through continuing professional development, including advanced Training for Doulas: Working with Multiples, VBAC, Birthing From Within, HypnoBirthing, and Spinning Babies workshops.
Over the years, Lauren has provided compassionate care to hundreds of mothers and families throughout pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period, providing attentive support that enables each woman to have the most fulfilling birth experience possible and feel confident and empowered as mothers.
When Lauren is not working, you can find her reading, painting, swimming, playing with her dogs, practicing yoga or pilates or enjoying a late morning weekend brunch with her family.
