A Little About Laura

I am a certified birth and postpartum doula, as well as a pediatric sleep consultant and owner of Southern Doula Services. I am originally from RI where I spent 15 years teaching kindergarten and first grade until we relocated to TN.   Throughout my progression to becoming a doula and ultimately starting my own agency, I have been able to blend my heart for educating with my passion for newborns and their families. I truly feel called to do this work and support families in my community. As a mother of four, I know first hand how challenging it can be.  It is my mission to enhance the overall well-being of our families and the community through education, comfort, and support during pregnancy, childbirth and the early parenting years. When I am not snuggling babies, I enjoy traveling with my husband and four adult children (especially if a beach is involved) Southern Doula Services would not be possible without the amazing support of my family. So thank you to them from the bottom of my heart.

Why We Do What We Do.

“My experience with Laura and Southern Doula Services was great from beginning to end.  Laura is warm and trustworthy.  she’s a mother of 4, so she understands what it takes to bring a new baby into the world. She came into our home during a hectic time of adjusting to our 3rd baby.  We’re so grateful for the peaceful rest she gave us and the way she lovingly cared for our baby girl.” N. Cooper

“Laura helped us with our third child, and it was the best thing we did for our family! We had never used a night doula before, but now I recommend one to all moms. I recovered from my c-section much faster while knowing my newborn was in great hands. Laura quickly became a part of our family and always made me feel comfortable no matter what shape I was in when she was around. I knew right away she loved my baby just as much as I did, which made everything seem right. We love Laura and would trust her again and again.” K. McLees
