Birth Doula | she/they
Hello, I’m Lauren! Although I was born in Orange County, my childhood memories are filled with the salty ocean air of Pismo Beach, where I was raised by health-conscious parents who instilled the value of an active lifestyle and nutritious eating. In high school and college, I was fully engaged in both academic and extracurricular activities, and maintained an above-average GPA. I cherish the memories of spending time with friends, taking long walks on the beach, and gathering around bonfires in the Oceano dunes.
My curiosity around psychology and wellness have been my muse since I was 16, cultivating a commitment to helping others live happier, healthier lives. With this mission as my motivation, I delved into the fascinating fields of psychology and business at the University of California, San Diego, where I met my partner. He is a beacon of inspiration in my life. With his unwavering kindness, and selfless generosity, he inspires me to live each day to its fullest and to spread joy and abundance wherever I go. I am truly grateful to have him by my side.
In my free time, I enjoy practicing yoga, aerial silks, weightlifting, crocheting, baking, cooking, and painting. I believe in embracing life and making opportunities for joy and connection. I find inspiration in nature, and I find solace in reminding myself of how small I am in the grand scheme of things. I find mindfulness to be incredibly helpful, and I use it to accept what is, move with the flow, and find peace by coming back to my breath and my body.
