Lauren Slusser – Tier 1

Lauren is a DTI-trained birth and postpartum doula.  She was raised with a reverence for birth as an empowering process and rite of passage, and she is so excited to partner with you in this experience.  Lauren will serve as a caring advocate and ally, while offering comforting touch, relaxation techniques, and aromatherapy during labor.  Her warmth, attentiveness, and bright presence will help you to feel safe and confident with your birth team. Lauren is also a comic artist and would love to work with you to create custom artwork to use as a focal point of encouragement during labor, if you are interested.

 

Lauren's love of children has led her to a career in preschool television, most recently as a manager at Nickelodeon, and she is currently pursuing her master's degree in Child Development and Educational Media at Columbia University.  She is also an intern at Nurture{Bklyn}, a community space for new and expecting families.  Lauren enjoys yoga, comics, camping, bubbles, and playing keyboard.
