“From the moment my husband and I met Lauren we knew we wanted her to be a part of the birth of our daughter Francesca.  She was the perfect addition to our birth team.  Lauren was a calming force that kept Adam and I connected throughout the entire process. I honestly don’t know what I would have done without her.  The support and encouragement I felt from Lauren from our meetings to the delivery enabled me to end up having the courage to deliver Francesca naturally just the way I wanted too. Her presence was constant but never invasive, and it enabled my husband and I to connect and share in the most beautiful experience of our lives.  I plan on having Lauren join us at all of our future births if she can, can’t imagine delivering our future children without her.”  – Tiffany Vartanyan
