Hi, and welcome to Accomplished Birth! My name is Lauren and I am a qualified Childbirth Doula based on the southside of Brisbane, QLD. I am passionate about birth and understand how beautiful and special the birth of your baby should be for you. When a woman gives birth surrounded by loving, supportive people and remains aware and in control of her experience, her birth becomes an achievable, enjoyable, miraculous occurrence that she really will be able to say was "the best day of my life!"
As a birth Doula, my role is to provide you with continual physical and emotional support throughout your labour, and to provide you with information and facilitate communication between you and your medical care provider (if you choose to have one). If you are seeking support but do not want me to attend your birth, you can engage me for childbirth education and/or birth preparation only. I have completed Childbirth Education and Breastfeeding Counseling training. I also offer a comprehensive range of placenta services.
So why hire a Doula? Doctors, midwives, partners and Doulas can help you, support you and keep you safe, but ultimately you are the one that does the work of giving birth to your baby, so why not give yourself the best chance possible? Doulas are a tool, along with education, information and learning physical skills, that can help you achieve the birth you dream of and deserve.
I work very hard on this website and am constantly updating it and adding new things, so please check back often!
