Laura’s interest in pregnancy was stirred when she was only 16 years during her older sister’s pregnancy. She felt that it was truly awesome to grow another little person! When she became pregnant with her own children she truly appreciated how amazing it really is. It was during her labor and birth with her first child that she found her calling to assist families during pregnancy, labor and postpartum. She was supported during her labor by a very encouraging nurse. This support was vital to her positive birth experience and she wanted to pass this positive support on to other families.
Laura’s passion for birth is demonstrated in the way she supports each individual family. Her goal is that the family feels empowered and has a positive experience, whatever that means for them. She feels that it is an honor to participate in such a special time in a family’s life.
Laura feels very strongly that families should be well educated in their pregnancy, labor and postpartum life. She stays on top of the most current literature and research to make sure she is always offering the most recent information.
