Ashley-Willa-VBAC-Cedars-site

Welcome! I am a DONA Certified Birth Doula attending births in the greater Los Angeles area. As a birth doula, I provide continuous physical, emotional and informational support before, during and just after childbirth. My services are available to families planning a vaginal birth, cesarean birth, or VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) where and how mama feels safest and most comfortable. Each woman and her partner have different desires and needs. I am passionate about helping parents explore and articulate their preferences, encouraging them to communicate those wishes to their care team, and helping them to experience a beautiful birth.

Testimonials

“Finding Lacey was the greatest gift fate could have sent us. She has a deep knowledge base and exudes a strong self confident understanding through her own experience as a mother. When things got down to the wire she went from a calming peaceful caregiver to a strong active member of our birth team. She brought so much more to the table than what I expected from a doula. We would not have wanted to do this without her.”
Brooke H, Los Angeles
“Lacey was so non-judgmental from the start. She supported whatever decisions I had already made, and helped me navigate the ones I had yet to make. She’s very nurturing and comforting and explained to me what was happening at each point and that is so helpful. My husband and I are so grateful to Lacey for keeping our delivery room a calm and focused place.”
Susan B, Los Angeles
