Lauren the writer, producer and actress
Play • 33 min

Lauren is an actress, writer and producer who has written and sold multiple original screenplays throughout her short but impressive professional career. Most recently, she created, wrote, produced, and starred in A California Christmas, one of a small handful of feature films to start and complete production during the pandemic. You can find this movie as well as her movie Roped on Netflix.

What is of importance to us today is that Lauren is a breastfeeding mom, and she talks to us about the challenges women in the movie industry are faced with when wanting to breastfeed when returning on set. Lauren was lucky in her journey as she produced the movie she starred in and it allowed her to add “mommy time”, aka pumping time, into the schedule. Throughout the interview she makes it a point to remind us that this is not common and that the industry is not set up to allow most females in different roles on set to do the same.

This interview showed me even more how there are still many industries that are not set up to support breastfeeding mothers and I am so thankful to Lauren for being on our show, sharing her experience and spreading the awareness.
