Lauren is a Doula and Midwifery Assistant who believes that pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding are natural and wondrous events in a woman's life. Lauren began her journey in birth work through doula training in March of 2012. After two years as a doula she felt called to grow and expand her knowledge and skill-set, in March of 2014 she began working to become a monitrice/midwife's assistant and completed her training and coursework in October of 2015.

Megan Jennings is a Certified Midwife Assistant, Certified Birth and Postpartum Doula and a Certified Breastfeeding Educator. Megan has served multiple families as a Birth Doula since March of 2013. Megan found her passion for birth after the birth of her first child. Megan's experience was empowering because she had a provider who respected her choices as the laboring mother. This inspired her to help other families achieve the birth they feel is right for them.
Megan believes that having the knowledge to make informed choices in birth shapes who you will be as a mother and that bringing a new person into your family and becoming a parent is a delicate, transformative time and she aims to provide the support needed to ease that transition.
Megan is happily married to a loving and supportive husband with a young son and daughter. She loves a good cup of coffee, late movie nights with her family, and never says no to a perfectly cooked steak usually made by her awesome husband.
Farah Antoine-Mayberry - Assistant-In-Training
Farah Antoine-Mayberry is an occupational therapist, a certified lactation counselor, a DONA trained birth doula and hopes to be a midwife someday! She owns a community business that supports families by providing a number of different birth services including but not limited to lactation and birth doula services.
Farah has been blessed with a supportive husband and 5 incredible children (including a set of twins). Besides working with mothers and babies, she enjoys spending time with family, dabbling in photography, and traveling.
You may be asked if it is okay if Farah shadows at your visits and may also choose to invite her into your birth space alongside your midwife and assistant. We understand your birthing is sacred and do not require that you select this as an option.
