Episode 5: How to have a beautiful birth with Lauren Falconer
Recording this conversation was such an absolute pleasure.
Lauren Falconer is a Mother, yoga teacher, doula, birth and mother mentor, birth educator, shamanic woman-crafter, dõTERRA leader. Director of The LifePod & Creator of Spirit Birth.
She is also the woman who guided myself and my partner through Calm Birth and Soleil’s birth as our Doula. I hold her in a special corner of my mama heart for so many reasons, but mostly for the way she threads science, understanding, wisdom and spirituality into what I consider to be the most sacred and transformative journey ever.
