Lauren NapolitanoAtlanta, GeorgiaAbout Me
Lauren Napolitano is a Birth Boot Camp certified childbirth instructor and doula passionate about guiding couples through the extraordinary journey of pregnancy and birth.
Lauren received her Bachelor’s Degree in English & International Relations, and spent a few years studying and volunteering overseas. Once she returned home to New York City, she pursued a Master’s Degree in Education, and worked for an NGO within the United Nations to improve global maternal health rates. Lauren attended births as a doula on a part-time basis during graduate school.
Lauren worked in the Field of Education for 10+ years as a Reading Specialist, Academic Intervention Specialist, and Inclusion Teacher. She met her husband in 2010, they married in 2013 and relocated to the Atlanta area shortly after for work. Her devastating experience with infertility and miscarriage followed by the extraordinary births of her children led her to her next calling: to serve women and families as a birth doula & childbirth instructor.
Lauren was profoundly affected by both of her (very different) childbirth experiences, but particularly influenced by her unmedicated birth experience. The sense of relief provided by her own doula--feelings of being heard, cared for, and respected--forever impressed upon her the wonder and beauty of the birth experience. Her aim is to educate, empower and guide couples so that they too can have a transformative & positive birthing experience.
Lauren provides physical, emotional and informational support during pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period and tailors her services specifically to the needs of her clients.
Lauren has future plans to pursue a Master’s Degree in Nursing and is currently accepting doula clients on a part-time basis.
In her spare time Lauren enjoys spending time with her family, reading, running, hiking, yoga and meditation. Lauren is also a certified personal trainer and enjoys helping people define and achieve their fitness goals.
