About Laura

Hi love! My name is Laura, I’m a birth doula and prenatal/postnatal yoga teacher based in Durham, NC and am currently accepting new clients. I began my birth work journey after working in maternal mental health research for 4 years. After hearing from countless women about their birth trauma and the anxiety, depression and trauma that followed, I decided it was time to be on the front lines and dove headfirst into birthwork.


As a birth doula I fully support you emotionally, physically and mentally during your pregnancy, labor and delivery, and postpartum. I do not replace your birthing partner or medical provider and instead work as part of your birth team to help give you the birth experience that YOU desire.


I believe that birth can be a sacred, transformative, and empowering journey unique to each individual. As a yoga teacher I believe in the power of movement, breath, mantra, visualization and sound to tune into the natural rhythm and sensation of the body. I'm so excited to walk alongside you in this journey.
