Our team


Lara Lasky

Prior to becoming a certified doula and a Certified Holistic Reproductive Practitioner, I had a long career as a public health scientist. Although it was rewarding work, something was missing, and I found myself yearning for more one-on-one connections and the ability to make a difference in the lives of families. Then my sister, an OBGYN and midwife herself, invited me to attend the births of her children, and I was hooked. Nothing compares to the moment new life comes earthside.

My own struggles with fertility, and my less than picture-perfect birth, have led me to believe that everyone should have someone by their side to ride the waves of emotion that come when you are working to bring life into the world.

These experiences led me on my new path.

As a new birth doula, I often stayed connected to the families I had helped during the birthing process, calling to check in and see how they were doing. This is when I discovered that new families need just as much support after the baby comes home. This is why I also offer postpartum doula services. With families living further apart, and in our busy modern lives, new families find that a little extra support is exactly what they need to get through those first weeks and months of their new baby’s life.

It is my great joy to work with families throughout their journeys into parenthood and beyond. Regardless of where the journey takes you, I am here to walk along the path with you.
