My name is Laurel Smith. I have been married for sixteen years to my husband Jonathan. God has blessed us with eight children, ages 21 months to 15 years, all of whom have been born naturally, in a mix of locations... our home, a birth center, and one in the hospital.
Over the years, my appreciation for the support I have received and my desire to support other women in pregnancy and childbirth has grown into a dream of becoming a midwife “when I grow up.” I am currently apprenticing with two lovely local midwives and prayerfully pursuing that dream.
My work as a doula is an opportunity to support a more diverse group of women than I might serve as a home birth midwife. Whether a woman chooses to birth at home, in a hospital, or at a birth center, having continual support is extremely important, and I value the chance to offer that support.
I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I am delighted to serve women of varying beliefs, cultures, and backgrounds. I look forward to visiting with you and getting to know you and your desires for your birth.
