Client Testimonials for Lora Schnurr

Post a testimonial for Lora Schnurr



We are so thankful for Lora. She helped me to unveil the birth I one hundred percent wanted alongside my midwife! She is very respectful of your wishes and makes sure what you say goes! Lora talked to my husband and mom making sure they were in the loop and educating them in new ways to support me. She is educated in many different techniques. Lora helped me get through labor in so many ways, the most special was making sure I was number one ?? God truly blessed us with her, we have gained a life long friend and advocate-if you're going to hire a doula-hire Lora! You won't be disappointed ♥?

After our first birth, we knew we wanted to hire a doula for our second birth. Lora was a great source of support during my long labor ending with a c section. She provided lots of comfort measures and was able to give my husband and myself good advice. I enjoyed having Lora come postpartum. It was nice to be able to talk through the birth and she helped out around the house while I rested. We would very much recommend hiring Lora as a doula.

My journey with Lora, began when I was pregnant with my second child. I had hired a doula for labor and delivery and my doula was discussing a postpartum plan with me. She mentioned that postpartum doula services would be a good fit for my projected needs; however, she was unable to provide those services herself, at that current season in her life. I asked for recommendations and Lora came highly recommended. I also remembered reviewing Lora’s professional scope on the Doula Network of Fort Wayne, with familiarity. I consulted with Lora over the phone and invited her to connect in person, to see if this type of service would be a good fit. It was. Lora has an extremely welcoming and sensitive spirit. She is an excellent listener and goes the extra mile for mom and baby. She is a helpful combination of flexibility and structure, which allowed for much to be accomplished, even as a circumstance changed. Although task oriented, Lora takes the time to pause with you, making sure your heart and mind are getting the nourishment they need. When I think back on my experience postpartum with Lora, and what stood out most to me, was, “her willingness to serve.” She’s also able to whip up tasty food! She truly thinks of everyone and everything. Punctual and professional. Great heart. A postpartum doula, and specifically Lora, was the best “self-care,” investment. Highly recommended.

As both a birth and postpartum doula, Lora was a Godsend! During the birth of my baby, she was there every step of the way. She offered encouragement, support and creative suggestions without being pushy and went the extra mile during my long labor. Having her there was also very helpful when my husband needed an extra pair of hands and also a moment to rest. Plus it was a wonderful surprise to come home to a tidy house! Afterward, she was extremely helpful with running errands, housekeeping, organization, meal prep and advice which allowed me to recover and focus on my baby. My husband also felt that she is trustworthy, reliable and that her services were worth every penny.

Lora was my postpartum doula when I gave birth to my son. I can not say enough amazing things about how great it was to have Lora in my home during this transitional period. Lora prepared healthy snacks for me which was very important in my breastfeeding journey, did light housework including laundry, and held baby for me so I could take a shower and just have a few minutes of "me" time. I will never forget my time with Lora during those first days as a new mom. If you are on the fence about needing or wanting a postpartum doula and are considering Lora, DO IT!! You will not be disappointed and you dont realize how much you need her!
