About Laura

Laura Seaton is a Certified Professional Midwife who began her midwifery training in 1998. Her training was a combination of community apprenticeship with homebirth midwives and training at a high volume birth center on the Texas-Mexico border. Through the years, Laura has been privileged to attend over 170 births in six different states. She has worked with a wide variety of mentors, midwifery partners, and families and she has learned a great deal from each one.

Laura lives in Searsport with her three children. She offers homebirth midwifery services, doula services, and classes in natural childbirth, breastfeeding and parenting. She enjoys gardening, knitting, reading, dancing, exploring with her children, and learning. As a midwife, she strives to maintain an open heart, a curious mind, and a loving spirit. She serves families living in midcoast Maine, including the communities of Rockland, Augusta, Bangor, Ellsworth and Belfast.

"Just as a woman's heart knows how and when to pump, her lungs to inhale, and her hand to pull back from fire, so she knows when and how to give birth."
