My classes are $25 casual, $200 for a 10 class pass and $110 for a 5 class pass
I teach the popular birth education course, calmbirth each month. This is a wonderful way for couples to prepare for their upcoming birth. Calmbirth will help you to feel confident, empowered, fearless, and excited. It will deepen your connection with your inner wisdom, help you to let go of the fears and doubts you may be carrying, develop your understanding and equip you both with the skills necessary to birth your baby gently and joyfully.
I know from having birthed my son, and having supported many women as a doula that birth is something that we need to prepare for, its not a ‘see how I go on the day’, kind of thing.
I would love to work with you and support you through this experience.

Private Birth Support and calmbirth refreshers:
I offer private birth support sessions, exclusively designed around your personal needs and requests and held in the privacy and comfort of your own home or via skype.
I will take you through the main topics of preparation and teach you the vital skills that will help you both enormously to feel confident, relaxed and ready.
Areas of discussion may also range from the role of your partner to your birth plan, stages of labour to breathing techniques & active birth positions.
I whole heartedly believe in empowering couples with the right information and skills in order to create together a positive and relaxed birth experience. Bring back the celebration and joy in birthing a baby, move toward your babies birth feeling relaxed and ready.

I am honoured to work as a doula! It is where I feel most at home and is without a doubt my ultimate calling, to be with women during birth.
I offer women and their partners physical and emotional support and guidance throughout pregnancy and am with them from the the beginning of labour right through until after the first feed, or thereabouts. Included in my services is birth education, guidance on how to prepare, emotional and spiritual support and really anything that arises that needs to be addressed, healed and worked through.
I include 2 prenatal home visits and 1 postnatal home visit, plus being on call 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after babies due date. I help to navigate the many options that arise and am a close and trusted support throughout, bringing comfort and reassurance to the mother and her partner. I have worked as a doula for over 8 years and am passionate about creating this sacred continuity of care for mothers and their partners and their babies.
I trust in women’s ability to birth, and I believe that being supported and held in a sacred space creates wonderfully positive birth experiences.
Here is what a recent doula client had to say…
I met Lauren during my pregnancy when I found her prenatal classes at The Lifepod. My husband & I attended her ‘Prenatal Yoga couples class’ & both loved her approach. She offered many different ways that we could support each other during labour, as well as through pregnancy. From this we decided to ask if she would be our doula.
This pregnancy would be our second birth so we knew what was coming but didn’t know what to expect.
Lauren was a reassuring embrace for my husband & I during my labour; warm, nurturing & supportive. Like in an embrace she held us together & made us strong together. She was the support we both needed to make our labour an experience that was so special.
Lauren exceeded all my ideas of what what her role would be, as she does in each of her yoga classes & roles she undertakes at The Lifepod. Her personal touch to all she does is not only authentic & professional but heartfelt & like no other that I have experienced.
I cannot recommend enough pursuing the experience you hope to engage in with Lauren. You will not regret it & you will not have another opportunity like that which Lauren offers.
