Welcome to Haven
A homebirth midwifery practice in Nashville created to empower and support women
Welcome to Haven,
a midwifery practice created to empower and support women.
Our desire is to provide women with holistic, relationship-based midwifery care in the comfort of one’s home.
“I have had two babies without Lauren Drees, and then two babies with her. And no words can adequately describe the difference her presence, care, and expertise brings into the pregnancy and labor experience. As a mother, I felt powerful, prepared, and safe every moment of the way, from our first visit to the moment she laid my son and (years later) my daughter onto my chest. If ever a woman was created to bring life into the world, it is Lauren Drees. You couldn’t be in better hands for the most important journey of your life!"
- Christa Black Gifford
"Lauren was everything I could have wanted as a midwife! Birth is a powerful, beautiful, and sacred experience and Lauren creates an environment where not only do you have all the emotional support needed, but she is competent and professional and ready to handle any medical situation that might arise. She is incredible at knowing when you need support, when you need space, and when you need someone to really take charge. As someone that had a previous very difficult birth I wanted someone that had a lot of experience and knowledge to be able to handle any situation that might arise and that was exactly my experience. At every point during my prenatal care, labor, and delivery I knew that I and my baby were safe and in capable hands. She really listened to me when I had questions and I felt totally empowered and supported to have the birth that I wanted. I can’t imagine having anyone else deliver my babies! Lauren is so much more than just a midwife, by the time your baby is born she will feel like a part of your family!"

"Lauren Drees attended the births of all three of my children in different capacities and was the grace of God to me in every way! She is highly skilled at calmly navigating the complexities of birth. She protected the sacred nature of the labor process-- holistically attending to the needs of my body, mind and heart. She anchored me with her peaceful presence and gentle touch and empowered me with perfect words when my confidence waned. I felt safe and covered under her care and can't imagine birthing a baby without her by my side!"
