Welcome Baby KC Founder, Birth Doula, Prenatal Yoga Instructor, Birth Educator, New Doula Mentor

Lauren Letterman is co-founder of Welcome Baby KC. For the last 10 years, she has worked as a birth doula, prenatal yoga instructor, and hypnosis for birth educator. Lauren works with families who select their birth team to suit their specific needs and expectations.

Lauren is a lifelong learner and enjoys meeting new people! Through this, she's created extensive files of evidence based resources and referral lists for the pregnant people she serves. No matter what path birth and parenting bring, Lauren is with her clients to cheer them on, brainstorm options, or throw down some gentle logic.

When she's not researching or offering an encouraging word, Lauren's happiest hiking, swearing, and traveling. Her other loves include: binge watching Brooklyn 99, reading fictional dystopian novels, walking her pup, Rhaegar, and spending time with her family of five.

What are people saying about Lauren?

Slide 1 of 3
  • "The level of support a doula provides is hard to put into words. Between answering ALL the questions, Giving insight to providers in our area, calming fears about birth and life prior to baby, solidifying my choices with support and knowledge AND helping me find the strength through delivery. I would not hesitate to hire Lauren again."

  • "[Lauren] was able to tell us, honestly about things I didn't even know about. She was excellent at helping navigate all the decisions, provide positive encouragement to discuss things with family, husband, doctor. She helped me find great resources-books, websites, lists, community and provided helpful postpartum support!"

  • "As a first time dad, Lauren was as much a comfort for me as she was for my wife. She posed questions that we had never thought about and guided us toward a birth plan without necessarily imposing her preferences. It was reassuring to know that she’d support me to be the best possible support to my wife."
