I'm Lauren and I am a mentored birth and postnatal doula and babywearing peer supporter living in Manchester with my almost Husband, two sons and one crazy cat. I love cooking and baking, having adventures with my boys and of course all things to do with pregnancy, birth and motherhood. Both my children were born at home and whilst I had two beautiful natural home births, what I am really passionate about is not natural birth but positive birth! I care that women are respected enough to make informed choices about their pregnancy and birth and are truly supported in their decisions so they can feel empowered by a positive birth experience. I’m new to this writing thing but I am so inspired by the families and birth workers I am meeting on my doula journey I thought I would have a go at writing down my thoughts. Happy reading!
