ProDoula Pre-CD Labor
Lauren Bullington is a DONA & ProDoula trained birth doula and placenta encapsulation specialist. She was trained at the Penny Simkin Center through Bastyr University in Seattle, WA. Lauren was inspired to become a doula when she began exploring labor and delivery nursing and certified nurse midwifery. She moved to Dallas to join the prestigious team at North Dallas Doula Associates where she found her calling as a professional birth doula.
Texas born, Lauren lived in College station until the age of 8 when she moved to the West Coast. She then began her travels to India throughout her teens and early twenties immersing herself in the culture and beauty of the country and people. Lauren graduated from Oregon State University with a BA in Construction Engineering Management and a minor in Business & Entrepreneurship. She worked for a large general contractor flipping houses in California until she decided to follow her heart into the doula profession.
Lauren brings her knowledge, upbeat and reassuring attitude to every birth that she attends; and truly believes that laughter is the "best medicine". She prides herself in being able to offer objective and unbiased information through evidence based research and informed consent. She works strategically with your care provider to create an environment that promotes collaboration and support, as well as, creating peace of mind for her clients and their partners, respectively.
Lauren has a love for helping families discover the birth that "naturally" unfolds for them, whether that be medicated, unmedicated, csection, VBAC, in home, birth center or hospital. She is comfortable in any scenerio that promotes and facilitates, not only a healthy birth, but a supported birth.
In her spare time, Lauren enjoys spending time with her family and her dog Ryder. She is a fan of trying new foods, cooking, attending sporting events and country music concerts.
