HI! I am Lauren Steinke, born and raised in the KC Metro, married to my very best friend, and a momma to two little boys. Prior to becoming a mom, I worked in social work. What i loved most about that was gaining connections with families from all backgrounds and supporting them through the highest highs and lowest lows. When we found out we were expecting our first we had no idea the amount of information there was to obtain, and how many choices we could make regarding childbirth and postpartum care. After digging in a bit we knew it was vital to create a team of people who could help us learn what we needed and support our wishes, which ultimately helped us have a wonderful birthing experience. After this I started dreaming about work that would allow me to support other expectant families through pregnancy, childbirth, and the "fourth trimester" postpartum. When my second son was born I finally look the leap and began my journey into doula work. Getting to support families as they transition into parenthood, whether it is their 1st or 4th time, is truly an honor.
