What’s the number one skill every birthworker

truly needs?

SELF REFLECTION

Self-reflection is essential for birthworkers. It deepens empathy, fuels continuous learning, fosters personal growth, drives professional evolution, establishes healthy boundaries, and empowers you to provide deeply aligned and compassionate care in service to women.

It’s the cornerstone of effective, empathetic, and transformative birthwork.

Self-reflection & self-care through guided journalling

You are your business. Your own well-being is the foundation upon which your ability to provide exceptional care rests. Nurturing yourself is not an option; it's a necessity to offer the support, compassion, and wisdom that women deserve. Your journey of self-care and reflection is an investment in your clients' experiences and in the very essence of your birthwork practice.

You are your business.

Taking care of yourself is a necessity.

Hey, I’m Lauren

As a former palliative care nurse, I’ve seamlessly transitioned into birthwork and somatic coaching and brought with me the reflective practice I honed in healthcare. I believe it’s our duty as providers of deeply interpersonal care to regularly reflect on our practice, to grow and evolve so we can offer birthing women the empathetic and soulful support they deserve, while caring and tending to our own well-being.

Let’s ALCHEMIZE

“Lauren’s Birthwork Alchemy is a masterpiece on paper. It costs less than therapy and dare I say, has a more profound impact on your mental health and inner peace. The prompts guide you back home to yourself easefully and help you integrate your experience as a witness in the sacred birth space. The professional growth chapter, if completed honestly, might take me out of a job. Every doula and birth keeper needs a copy of this to add to their soul care regime.”
