With a background in Office Management Laura knew she was destined for something more. What she really wanted, and what she knew would be most satisfying to her was to own her own business, doing something she was deeply passionate about.
Meet Laura Fitzgerald, Doula and Owner, East Coast Baby Co.
The “Birth” of East Coast Baby Co.
While speaking with a friend who recently had a baby, she mentioned that she was on a “waiting list” to see a Lactation Consultant. A waiting list for lactation support?! Women need support when they are struggling, not when their name comes up on a list…
And that’s when the light bulb went off! Laura had a life-changing moment; one that connected her passions and would be the inspiration for the “birth” of East Coast Baby Co.
“I was meant to be in the business of helping moms and babies in every way needed and now is the time to follow my passion!”
Certified Postpartum & Infant Care Doula
As her research began, Laura spoke with local Lactation Consultants and Registered Nurses and that’s when she learned the word, “Doula.” As soon as it was explained to her, Laura knew she had found her niche.
She became a Certified Postpartum & Infant Care Doula as well as a Certified Infant Feeding Specialist and began working right away. Pouring into her clients, who refer to her as, “The Baby Whisperer” fulfills Laura in ways she never thought imaginable.
