The space for women who are ready to step forward in strength, becoming whom they need to be to have the birth they desire.
TEACHING YOU HOW TO CREATE AN EMPOWERED PREGNANCY AND BIRTH EXPERIENCE
MEET YOUR MENTOR:
Laurelen is a trained childbirth educator, birth doula, breastfeeding coach, perinatal personal trainer, and birth photographer. She is the founder and CEO of Nourish Birth + Wellness and Be to Birth. She has personally attended over 50 births in a variety of settings, including hospitals, birth centers, and home births. She specializes in helping clients feel empowered in their birthing choices, whatever their preferences may be. She has personally given birth in three very different ways (an epidural birth in a hospital with an OB/GYN, an unmedicated hospital birth with midwives, and an emergency cesarean birth due to placental abruption), and is planning her first HBAC (Home Birth after Cesarean) for November 2022. Whatever kind of birth you want, Laurelen can support you to achieve it.

BE TO BIRTH
"Laurelen helped me with my second pregnancy so much. I suffered from trauma from my first pregnancy and birth that created uncontrollable fears. She guided me to find my way to a calm place. She empowered me to express what I needed. Laurelen helped me advocate for myself and to find clarity when I became stuck in the dark places that past trauma had created. I am so thankful she helped me see the difference between the traumatic experience and the new experiences I was living. The birth of my second son was a healing and joyful experience that I so desperately needed. I was able to see the positivity and joy in the individual moments. I know I would not have had this experience without working with Laurelen."
"My husband and I enjoyed this birth class so much! The small class size allowed us to get to know the other couples well and gave us plenty of space to ask questions. We loved the fact that Laurelen mixes different types of labor and birthing "methods", taking the best from each! From practicing breathing techniques to help connect our body and mind during labor, to learning the different stages of labor and how to work with our bodies to help birth our baby, we feel so prepared going into our birth. We also learned a TON of comfort measures to use to hopefully achieve a natural birth! She also brought in local experts such as a lactation consultant, a pelvic floor physical therapist, and a chiropractor to educate us on different support we can look to during and after our pregnancies. This was so helpful because I know exactly who to reach out to if I need support! Couldn't recommend this class enough. The value you receive for the price is too good to pass up!"
We were on the fence about adding a birth class to our overall preparation but we are both SO GLAD we took advantage of the opportunity. We both learned practical knowledge that went way beyond any material we read on our own. Being able to connect, learn, and laugh with other expecting parents was a solid bonus. We cannot recommend Laurelen & the class enough!
The initial modules cover everything you need to know to prepare for birth, including mindset prep, physical prep, and general knowledge about the birthing process and your choices in it. We give you all the tools you need to have a peaceful, powerful, empowered birth experience.
