“With her support, I was able to have the best birth possible.”
Lacy was my doula and she was absolutely amazing. With her support, I was able to have the best birth possible. I could not have done it without her!!

“Her calming actions, words, and demeanor were exactly what we needed to get through.”
Lacy has been a pleasure to work with! From our first meeting, my husband and I knew she was the doula we wanted to join us on our VBAC attempt. She paid close attention to every element of the birthing we envisioned, but remained flexible as our plans changed given the circumstances. Lacy was attentive to my needs, as well as my husband’s – making sure that we were taking care of ourselves and each other. She empowered my husband and I to ask questions and be sure we got the information and support that we needed from the hospital team. Her calming actions, words, and demeanor were exactly what we needed to get through, and we were thrilled to share the birth of our second son with her.
“I would highly recommend her to anyone!”
I don’t know if I would have had my VBAC without the assistance of Lacy. My doctors were giving me so many if’s about my vbac. They had me so scared, but Lacy was always there to help coach me through the trials of pregnancy. She was very knowledgeable about how to get the baby to drop down into my pelvis ( I was overdue by this point) with many different exercises. On the night I was ready to deliver I called Lacy at 3:20a.m because the doctor wanted me to have a c section and I was overwhelmed and crying. Mind you I had been in labor for 2 days and was finally at 9 cm dilated and 99.4% effaced, but they said my baby heart rate was too high and she wasn’t moving enough on the monitor. Lacy was able to calm me down and keep me focused on the goal. She aided me in many tools that helped the baby move and her heart rate drop down to the doctors satisfaction. If it was not for her I would have probably had another c section, but instead I had a very successful Vbac and for that I am grateful. I would highly recommend her to anyone that truly want someone that is passionate about what they do and truly love the birthing experience and children.

“She is so much more than a doula- she is a lifesaver!”
As a first time mom, I was so nervous being pregnant, and I was so afraid of the entire experience. When I met Lacy, I was immediately at ease. She was so nice, compassionate, and knowledgeable through the entire pregnancy, and she always went above and beyond. One night my baby was rolled over in just the right position to stick out my back and cause extreme pain. Lacy came over and massaged me. She went above and beyond, staying past midnight to ensure that all the pain and discomfort was gone. She answered all of my questions and helped me to become so well educated about all of my options that I stopped being afraid at all. I could not have ever done my natural birth without her, and I already know that I will use her services for my next pregnancy. No matter what time of day, if I needed her, she always answered her phone or came over if I needed her. Lacy was there for one of the best days of my life, and she even helped my husband to feel comfortable and well informed. She is so much more than a doula- she is a lifesaver!

“Lacy knows so much.”
Lacy knows so much. Any question I have had over the last 20 years she has been able to answer or find out the answer for me. She has helped me through my pregnancy, labor (from 3000 miles away), and my miscarriage.
“I cannot thank Lacy enough for bringing so much love and peace to, what can easily be, an extremely stressful stage of our lives!”
Lacy from Connected Birth was fantastic! I hired Lacy right around my 33rd week and she was very kind and accommodating throughout the entire process. She customized a package for my family’s needs. From our first meeting I felt surprisingly comfortable, as Lacy a quiet reassuring presence. I ultimately ended up delivering early at 37 weeks as a result of preeclampsia. Lacy did not miss a beat! She helped, rather, guided? my partner and me through an extremely complicated labor and delivery. My partner also appreciated her preparation and support throughout the whole experience. She went the extra mile and worked with my four year old daughter to ensure she felt included, excited, and comfortable for the arrive of our baby boy. I cannot thank Lacy enough for bringing so much love and peace to, what can easily be, an extremely stressful stage of our lives
“Lacy is so passionate and knowledgeable. I’d recommend her to anyone!”
I didn’t meet for the first time till I was in active labor as she is the backup doula to the original one I had booked with (my original doula was attending to another mom who went into labor a month before her due date). Lacy was absolutely amazing! She came to our house and immediately started to observe how I was getting through contractions and gave awesome pointers and suggestions to help assist me and even my husband! Lacy was so calm and reassuring during each contraction it really helped keep me calm. When it was time to head to the hospital she rode in the car with us and helped with the final part of transition labor right before delivery. She stayed for 2 hours after the birth to help make sure I was doing well and getting comfortable and helping with my husband and I’s new son. Lacy is so passionate and knowledgeable I’d recommend her to anyone!
“I am so thankful for the blessing of Lacy.”
My birth experience was WONDERFUL! This is my third birth, first home-birth, and I am so thankful for the blessing of Lacy this go-round! In my previous births I did not have a doula, and it was a breath of fresh air to have someone trained and in tune with what I may need during the birthing process. Lacy was a calming presence and was a wealth of suggestions when I needed a change of pace to help labor progress. She looked to me for cues to determine how involved I needed her to be, Lacy reassured me that everything I was feeling was normal and that I could cry if it helped release energy too. It worked! What a blessing!
