Laurel Gourrier

Birth Stories in Color

Laurel Gourrier is a reproductive justice and family advocate. The birth of her first child led her to begin her work as a doula. Laurel provides families with information and tools to help them feel empowered by their own birthing experiences, as well as holding space as an ally to birth inclusivity through a reproductive justice lens. The core value of uplifting autonomy is the root of her practice. She currently supports families in Columbus, Ohio, and New Orleans, as a birth/postpartum doula and co-host of the podcast Birth Stories in Color (BSiC).
