Hello, I'm Laura Barsay. I started Homespun Birth in 2011 after I was asked by an acquaintance to support them as a doula and quickly learned it was my calling. I have been working gratefully within a co-op of wonderful doulas ever since. I am an Informed Beginnings™ childbirth educator, as well as a birth and postpartum doula. I am Reiki certified
I & II and currently working towards Reiki master teacher. I trained with DONA International for birth work, SBD for bereavement training & Tranquil Transitions Placenta Services for placenta encapsulations. I live in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago with my awesome spouse and our two amazing children.
When not talking about birth with anyone who indulges me; I crochet too many things, build tiny houses, & travel to places near and far.
Homespun Birth is a full spectrum doula fellowship born from the idea that you deserve the best care, information, & support during this incredibly transformative period in your life. It is my goal to have you joyfully own your birth, be educated before & empowered by it after.
I warmly serve any & all people giving birth, I am truly honored to attend you. You deserve to have the birth that you truly want. You are doing the hard part, I'm here to make it easier. Homespun Birth is service without judgment.
