Lauren Jacobs Foster is the Co-Owner of Doulas of Orange County. She is a Pediatric Sleep Coach, Birth & Postpartum Doula, Babywearing Specialist, Prenatal Yoga Instructor and Childbirth Educator. She has been serving the greater Long Beach & Orange County areas since 2008. Beginning as a Prenatal Yoga student, her mentor helped her find an incredible passion for doula work. It didn't take long for Lauren to accept that a strong force was pulling her into the world of pregnancy, childbirth, & beyond. Her greatest desire as a Sleep Coach and Doula, is to holistically care for families wherever they're at in the present moment and to provide professional yet intimate support without judgement.

The goal of Lauren's education and training is geared towards fulfilling her vision of working with growing families to facilitate empowerment and confidence through knowing and trusting in their own instincts. Setting judgments and agenda aside, her intuition guides her into sacred relationship with the clients she serves and the bond is unbreakable!  While many see her as the teacher, the educator, the guide; she accepts that her own journey of self-discovery is immensely impacted by the families that she is so privileged to serve. Lauren shares her knowledge and expertise with the community regularly by mentoring new doulas, teaching our Baby Sleep 101 seminars and leading our virtual Confident Birth childbirth education classes.

Lauren has yet to experience the joys that childbirth & motherhood bring, but faithfully looks forward to that day! During her down time she enjoys swimming, hiking, sushi dates with her husband, knitting and voraciously reading any good fiction she can get her hands on.
