“I had my perfect birth which I did not even know that I wanted before I met Lauren. I would not have achieved that if not for her helping me open my eyes to what giving birth is actually about. Neither would I have learned to listen to and trust my body as much as I do now. Lessons I learnt from Lauren will stay with me forever.”

Pregnancy and Birth Blogs & Positive Birth Stories
“My birth isn’t a typical positive birth story. It certainly wasn’t drug or intervention free and it ended up being completely different to my initial plan. However, for me, it was still a positive experience and I wanted to share it because prior to giving birth I read so few positive stories where there was […]
Aghhhh I’m raging!! I’ve just read (and read, and read again) this article from The Independent; ‘Hypnobirthing, placenta eating and the worrying fads that strike fear into pregnant women’ And I feel I HAVE to respond to this (IMO) utter horse shit! These words are my own and when I talk about birth preparation I’m talking […]
Bonding – It’s a word you’ll hear throughout your whole pregnancy, a word that describes something exclusive and expected. After the birth it’s often used as a barometer to how well you’ve settled into your new role as mummy and you yourself may use it to gage whether you actually love your new baby or […]
Picture the scene, it’s a warm spring day, a ewe is gently birthing her lamb, unassisted and un-medicated. There is a farmer waiting in the shadows, he knows how to lend a helping hand should he need to, but, he knows that this would be a very last port of call. The ewe is allowed […]
Testimonials For Gifts and Birth Support
"I absolutely love The Whole 9 Months concept and it was a delight to get this box in the post. I remember looking for a Ewan the Sheep for my 1st and ending up with with white noise from the hoover and hair dryer because I couldn't find one anywhere. But the main thing I loved was receiving a box in the post that was mainly just about me. I added a Harmony Ball or Bola necklace to my pack, so it was slightly more bespoke and loved having that option. All in all I would thoroughly recommend this boxes, but don't don't be stingy with yourself, treat yourself to the whole the series. They are amazing!" - Suzy Ashworth - Founder of The Calm Birth School
“I am so grateful for all of Lauren’s hard work, kindness, compassion in supporting me with my birth. From the first meeting I felt that Lauren understood me and what I needed; and this coupled with her obvious knowledge and experience of birth made me able to surrender and relax in a way I honestly don’t believe I would’ve been able to do with any other person. Thank you Lauren for the heart and passion that you put into your work. You are amazing!!” - L - Great Dunmow
"I fell in love with these boxes the minute I saw them! My husband & I have only just started trying so I couldn't buy for myself; the perfect excuse came when one of my lovely friends broke the news that she was expecting - I bought for her instead! FABULOUS service. Lauren, who runs this company couldn't be nicer or more responsive. The text I received from my friend on receipt of the 0-6 months box was as follows: 'What an amazing surprise, I'm just so speechless & emotional. Chris (her husband) just came in & said "F**k me! What an lovely gift"!' This idea is absolutely fabulous & Lauren is so nice I am even considering a doula when I eventually get pregnant & have to give birth - which is something I'd never thought would be for me! Wonderful, I will definitely be a return shopper! Thank you!" - Elise

"I bought this box along with the other boxes and have kept some stuff for myself and am giving some as presents to pregnant friends. The pregnancy and birth journal is beautiful and I only wish I had had this sooner I have been using it so much since my daughter was born 4 weeks ago, absolutley brilliant for keeping track of feeds and nappies etc. I also kept the bracelet and wore it through my last few weeks of pregancy and also now that baby is here, it is beautiful." - Christine
“As often happens during pregnancy, I was filled with lots of questions and worries. It was great to have Lauren on the other side of my email or the phone. I’d often post her questions or a short rant, and she’d listen, let me discuss the issue further and help me weigh up my values (especially when thinking about the ‘what ifs’). When we had our NCT antenatal course, lots of the other couples were envious of the level of support we had from Lauren and the extensiveness of our knowledge about the birthing process, which we credit to her and all the resources she shared with us.
The due date came and went and Lauren stayed on call. She had suggested a mood board to help me get in touch with the little one a few weeks prior and this helped me focus on our journey rather than just the event. On the day, Lauren came promptly and prepared. I was in the zone and she happily kept herself busy and out of the way as I laboured. She managed all the discussions with the midwives (including disputes over which ones would come to our house even though this was pre-arranged!) and helped keep the atmosphere calm. She even managed to film the entire birth for us.” - E & L - Sawbridgeworth
“My birth could not have gone better for me, but it wasn’t without potential interventions as the staff wanted to intervene on several occasions. This was my show, my big event, my moment and they were all guests. Lauren kept me focused reminding me of our conversations and aspirations for this birth. I was birthing my baby as nature intended. In a lovely warm birthing pool, darkened room with a few inspirations of entonox our beautiful little girl came into this world. I raised her gently from the water and holding her to my chest I felt so overwhelmed with the sense of achievement.
My family are indebted to Lauren. She turned my fears and concerns into hope and excitement. She was a wonderful advocate for both myself and my husband. Everyone is quick to tell you about their horrible birth story but I am proof that it does not have to be like that and have been sharing my wonderful experience with as many as possible. Hiring Lauren as our doula was one of the best decisions I have made in my life.” - D & B - Felsted
“If you look for a definition of Doula then this is what you will find: A woman who gives support, help, and advice to another woman during pregnancy and during and after the birth. That is what we thought we would get with Lauren, but the reality was we got so much more.
We got a friend, someone who completely understood the feelings of me and my husband, and made sure she helped us in every way possible. Our birth wasn’t straightforward, but with Lauren at our side, we dealt with everything that came out way. Before I met Lauren I was scared to give birth naturally, now I couldn’t imagine anything else.
She was simply the most incredible support unit for our family and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services. Look no further, you have found the perfect Doula and a friend for life.” - F & J - Chelmsford
