About Laurel

Who is behind The Seagull Nest?

I am Laurel Segal, owner of The Seagull Nest. My life has been centered around children as long as I can remember.  Throughout my life, I have continued to explore my interest in newborns and young children and eventually became who I am today. I know how daunting the postpartum period is and parenthood in general and my priority is to meet parents where they are and go from there. I love to learn and strive for the utmost level of expertise in my fields. I am a Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant, Postpartum Doula and Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician.

I am proficient in American Sign Language and knowledgeable about the Deaf Community and Deaf Culture. I have an Associate of Art Degree in Deaf Studies and am happy to work with the Deaf Community! I have been using ASL since 2006 and know that there are not enough providers that are conversational in ASL or have an understanding of Deaf Culture. I am happy to work with families of any dynamic and welcome you with open arms, including but not limited to: BIPOC families, LGBTQ families, single-parent or multiple parent families, families with grandparents caring for their grandchildren, families with adoptive or foster children, families with child who have disabilities and any other type of family that you can imagine!

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my partner, teenage twin step-daughters and my son. I love photography, gardening and anything related to plants. We reside outside of Boston, Massachusetts.

Laurel is a dedicated, knowledgable, kind and caring professional in every way. She was flexible with our needs and provided multiple options to find the best fit for our kiddo. We've had serious challenges with our baby's sleep and thanks to Laurel's consistent and skilled approach we are now all getting more sleep! She was so patient with us and was totally there for me through a super intense time - if you've ever experience that extreme sleep deprivation you know what it means to have someone with a big heart and resourceful toolkit at your side! Highly recommend and very grateful to have worked with her.
