The research from the NIH (National Institute for Health) shows that having a skilled Doula not simply the desire for vaginal birth, "empowers a laboring mother to communicate her needs and perceptions and actualize her dream of a healthy, positive birth experience"

Why risk this day to an unskilled Doula when you can be assured of high-quality services designed to promote the best outcomes for mother and baby from a skilled experienced Doula?

"Only an experienced knowledgeable Doula and Educator will bring you beyond any research you can do that you spend hours and hours and months doing on your own.   I can explain the pitfalls. I have seen it. The reality is that I’ve seen many things over the last 10 years. I’ve seen women pushed into procedures because it’s policy and the politics of the hospital system rather than what the evidence provides. This is beyond the checklist of a birthplan. I’m going to teach you to advocate for yourselves and navigate the hospital and challenging system as it is now."- Doula Lauren

Whether or not you are a first-time mother, second-time mother or going for a VBAC, Lauren has the expertise and experience you need for this special day. In this current climate where the c-section rate is nearing 60% you only get one chance to get it right.

Doula Lauren has been attending births for more than 10 years and has attended over 130 births in almost every hospital in NYC. You can feel confident working with her for this very reason. Over the course of more than 10 years, her C-section rate has been under 5% with her clients.

"I provide comprehensive services to my clients.  I strongly believe in educating my clients as I work with them to achieve the best birth possible. This combination of experience and fees are unparalleled."

​Call today! 917-617-7905 to discuss your individual needs. I accept payment plans, credit cards and help you afford the service you deserve.

Alexa Drew Photography is a Manhattan based photographer specializing in newborns and families.  Alexa is known for her gentle approach and ability to capture both those subtle details of your baby's lips and skin, as well as that indescribable energy pulsating throughout a family when a new baby is welcomed home.

Alexa Drew's sessions occur in her client's homes between 3 and 10 days after birth so Mom, Dad, Baby, and Siblings all feel comfortable and at ease throughout the entirety of the shoot.  At the end of her sessions, most clients will say "Wow, I didn't expect that to actually be fun" and big brothers or sisters will ask why the play date is over so soon.  Alexa makes sure to always create a relaxed and enjoyable environment during her sessions to ensure the most real and emotional moments can be captured.
