A down-to-earth, open-minded, contemporary approach to childbirth.
Consistent support, continuous reassurance, comfort, education, encouragement and respect. Those are just some of the powerful words to describe the work of a doula. Choosing a doula is one of the most important decisions you will make as parents.
Promoting birth as a normal, physiological process, these comprehensive classes prepare pregnant people and their partners for labor, birth and the immediate postpartum. Classes are open to the birthing parent and support partner.
Lavender Labor and Birth Services is proud to offer the first and only LGBTQ Childbirth Education Classes in Los Angeles! This four-class series is open to people choosing to birth at home, in a birth center, or at a hospital and will address the circumstances around each environment.

Love for Lavender
Samantha not only provides an amazing level of ongoing supportive for both the mother and non-birthing partner, but also has a wealth of pregnancy, birthing, and postpartum knowledge that is truly invaluable when it comes to navigating the process of giving birth.
