My goal is to assist parents as you enter a new phase in your family’s life.   I will provide you with support and insight in both the physical and emotional changes of your postpartum period as well as practical hands-on support with self-care, infant care and adjusting to your new normal. I PROUDLY support families in the LGBTQ community and families that are born through surrogacy and adoption.

About Lauren Bernazza:

​Lauren Bernazza is a mother of two sets of precocious twins and two rescue mutts. She shares this life with her husband Tim in a wonderful 1960s ranch house in Historic Roswell, GA.    

 

Lauren holds a BFA in Fine Art from UGA and spent 8 years working in art administration for Fulton County Arts Council and various non-profits. The birth of her first set of twins brought with it an unplanned calling to stay home and raise her family. That choice was the first step on her path to birth work as it allowed her to fully immerse herself  in the world of pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting. The surprise of a second set of twins completed her family and encouraged even more research and self-education on childbirth.  

 

​Lauren has trained with both Carriage House Birth and DONA International and currently serves on the Board of Directors for The Georgia Birth Network.

 

When not busy doula-ing and enjoying life with her wild brood, Lauren spends time out in nature, completing yoga teacher training, fighting the patriarchy, and spending time with her amazing friends.
