About Me

Hi!  I’m Laura.

Credentials: Certified Childbirth Educator (ICEA), Certified Lactation Educator Counselor (UC San Diego)

Additional Training: Birth Doula Training (DONA International), Birth Doula Finishing Series and VBAC For Doulas (Birth Education Center of San Diego)

Following the birth of my first child, I was inspired to follow the path of those who helped me through that unforgettable, challenging, and beautiful experience.  This is what led me to become a childbirth educator and birth doula.

I have a passion for supporting women throughout the process of pregnancy, birth, and settling in to their role as new mothers.  As an educator and doula, my goal is to help new mothers feel empowered to make the best possible choices for themselves and their family, and feel more confident and prepared for the birth experience.  I view the birth of a child a transformative experience for every individual, and feel that the process of preparing for a baby’s arrival is an opportunity for a woman and her partner or support person to strengthen their bond.

It is an honor to do this work, and look forward to working with you during this special time in your life.
