La Bella Birth and Baby is thrilled to welcome Spencer Lanning to our team! Spencer was a previous client of ours and our friendship with her has grown into a beautiful collaboration. We know that having her on our team is going to create so many opportunities for us to further reach women and families as they navigate pregnancy and parenthood. Her talent, skills, and huge heart of compassion are going to serve her so well as she finds her way in the birth world. Welcome to the team Spencer!

Spencer studied Studio Art and Education at Salem College and is an Integrated Birth and Family Alliance (IBFA) trained birth doula. She lives in Mocksville, NC with her fiancé, three children, their dog, Gypsy and Archimedes the gecko.
After having three very different, yet equally transformative experiences: an emergency-cesarean at Forsyth Hospital(2010), a successful VBAC at Natural Beginnings Birth Center(2016) followed by an extensively planned Home-birth that didn’t go as planned(2017) she found out what a roller coaster ride life can be as families prepare to welcome their new babies. As she prepared for her first VBAC in 2015, she realized what an essential role doulas truly play and then decided that the doula life was the life for her.

Alongside of doula work, Spencer is equally passionate about her artwork and has decided to combine her love for both and strives to support every family wherever their journey through pregnancy may take them. She will be focusing on postpartum care while offering a number of services including placenta artwork, placenta encapsulation, belly casting and belly painting. You can view some samples of her artwork below.
