Meet Laura

Sister, I’m so excited you’re here! Since I was 19 years old, I have felt a deep calling to work with women in the various experiences of what it means to be a woman. Whether it be guiding young women through fertility awareness, or walking with mothers in birth and postpartum, I’m here for all of it.


I believe the time is now to center women and reclaim our womanhood. I strongly believe that how we are born affects our relationships of trust with both our bodies and Mother Earth. To heal the Earth we must first heal birth. That’s why I’ve created Mothers of Gaia Birthkeeping. A business with loving intention and a purpose to bring women’s liberation through reconnecting, grounding, and trusting our bodies through the journey of womanhood, so that we can take that newfound intuition and heal the relationships, communities and environments around us.

Laura Ellen Smith - Mothers of Gaia Birthkeeping - Birth Doula, Postpartum, Coaching

As a birthkeeping graduate of The Matrona School, I bring my knowledge of physiological birth, homeopathy and herbalism to my practice. As a two-time yoga school graduate, I bring breathwork, meditation and embodiment practices to help women integrate their experiences in pregnancy, and birth from a place of groundedness and inner-knowing. As a woman, I bring my personal experience of reconnecting with the wisdom of my own body and learning to trust its divine intelligence, to support women who are also on the path of self-discovery. 

Whether you are a woman walking the pregnancy path, the postpartum path, or a woman simply seeking the support of another like-minded sister, I’m here for you! I can’t wait to see the magic we create together.
