Hi, I'm Lauren!
I am a Colorado native and have planted my roots in beautiful Steamboat Springs over six years ago. This community is magic for many reasons-we share a love for adventure, live a healthy lifestyle, find joy in the natural beauty, and value the close-knit family in this town. My goal as a doula is to serve locals here in Northwest Colorado by helping make their birth experience one for the books and ensure that the new family feels supported to set off on a strong start.
I opened my heart and established Mountain Born Doula Care in 2014. I became internationally recognized as a Certified Birth Doula with DONA in April of 2016 and then went through recertification in 2019.  I believe that I have found my life's purpose serving childbearing women and their families. I had my first experience as a birth doula while interning in Peru in 2011 which led me to begin my path in birth work. Maternal care is important throughout all communities of the world. My goal of this company is to strive to help women and their families in our little mountain town as well as across the globe.
In my personal life, I cherish time with my husband, exploring the beauty of the West, international travel, peaceful time on the river, camping, hiking with our puppy, and family time.
