Birth Doula Intern Laura Meador

Birth Doulas - Trained Labor Support Professionals

My name is Laura. I am a CLC and a Childbirth International- trained doula working toward my DONA certification. I grew up in Chicago but fell in love with birth in Ghana, Africa during a medical missions trip. Over the years I’ve seen numerous births in the home and hospital and eventually put roots down in Minnesota where I currently work as a Labor and Delivery nurse. It is a privilege to work in the birth space and celebrate new life. I love that I get to help women during one of the most physically challenging, spiritually altering, and emotional moments of their life.

I believe birth is a normal but significant life event. As a trauma informed birth doula, my goal is to educate, support, and provide all the information you need so that you are empowered to make your own choices when it comes to building a family. I’m excited to come alongside as you journey through all the stages of pregnancy, labor, and postpartum. Let’s head into this mysterious unknown confidently, bravely, together.
