Laura has such a sweet and gentle heart. My family and myself have been blessed to know her. Her calming presence during my labor and delivery were her much noted!

Having a Doula for my delivery was by far the best pregnancy decision I have ever made. We had searched a bit throughout my pregnancy and had no luck finding one but thankfully at around 8 months found Laura.

She immediately came for a home visit and spent hours with Aaron and I. Aaron was going to be a first time Dad and he was so nervous, that was until he met Laura. She helped so much to put his mind at ease and reassured us that she was not only there for me and the baby, but him as well.

She came to every appointment with me after that point. She helped me go over my birth plan and respected all of my hopes and wants for my labor and delivery to have the most natural hospital experience possible. She even set me up with a maternity and birth photographer and I now have some of the most amazing photos thanks to her and Elizabeth (the photographer).

She was prepared to come to my house again, which is out in the middle of no where to labor with me but my labor went so quick we barely made it to the hospital. She got to the hospital within minutes of the phone call. She provided more support than I ever imagined possible. I was worried I might feel a bit nervous with her in the room because it was just me and the father in the room when I had my first son 12 years ago, but that wasn't the case at all. Laura felt like a family member. She used massage and pressure points to help relieve the contractions. She pulled my hair back for me and helped cool me with a cool rag. She literally did everything I needed her to do. She also was my advocate to make sure everything went exactly as I wanted it to and it did. Everything was beyond perfect and I know I have Laura to thank for that. She will definitely be present for every birth I have form here on out and hopefully my next birth will be a home birth. Thank you for everything Laura!!!!
