This was my first pregnancy. My husband and I went to some classes but we knew we were not prepared for that day. Now my father has been in the room with my sisters being their coach but my father passed away 1.5 years so I knew we needed help.
My water broke 2.5 weeks before my due date the day of my baby shower and when we made that 5:15am call Laura was right there. She called and text us all day until we were ready to go to the hospital. My birthing plan was to have her naturally with no drugs but I was very nervous. Laura texted us the whole time we were at the hospital. She told us to call her when we were ready for her to come to the hospital. When Laura got to the hospital I was relaxing in the Jacuzzi. Laura quickly told me that I needed to move around because I was not gonna be ready to give birth by time the doctor came in the next morning at 10:30 AM. Thank God she came because when the doctor arrived I was 4 cm dilated and by 1:30/2pm was 8 cm dilated and was ready to push. Now during this time my contractions were coming on stronger and I forgot all about my birth plan Laura was right there ensuring that my plan was put into motion. Laura was able to step in and speak to the midwife and the nurses when I was ready to push. I had a vaginal birth with no drugs but did get nitrous oxide for pain management.
I think King of Prussia Doula and Laura for being there for me and my husband when we delivered a precious baby girl. With the help of Laura I was able to honor my father and stick to my birthing plan. Even after we gave birth they have still been a great support for us especially being first time parents. I would recommend King of Prussia Duola and Laura to all my friends and family.
Laura was the backbone of my labor experience. She held it all together when I thought my plans were falling apart. She is a true patient advocate. Everything she does is for the good of her patient. I was hesitant to even hire a doula wondering what the benefits would be, but now looking back at it, if I did not have her there by my side, my labor and delivery story would be a total nightmare. Laura does it all! She was there for me before the birth of my son and still there after! Heck she even put gloves on ready to help deliver my baby!
I was someone who was terrified to give birth and having Laura as my doula made the entire experience great! Before giving birth, she helped ease any of my concerns and gave me practical things to do. She checked in with me every day as my due date approached, which was helpful and I felt cared for. My husband was especially thankful for her services because she also eased his mind about what to expect, what's helpful during labor and delivery, etc. I ended up having a surprisingly (very) fast labor and delivery--even though I needed to be induced--and Laura showed up to the hospital within minutes of hearing I was in labor! She also helped me extensively postpartum (both in the hospital and in our post-natal visit) with breastfeeding, newborn care, etc. She is such a down-to-earth, friendly, and likable person, it was a blessing to have her by my side during the process! She helped to make my pregnancy/birthing experience one that I can look back on with joy. I highly recommend Laura!
Laura was wonderful to work with! She had a lot of knowledge and suggestions. She not only helped me throughout my entire labor she also showed me exercises and different things I could do to prepare my body for labor. She was also a great help with the whole breastfeeding process. I would definitely recommend her. She was an amazing support for myself and my husband throughout the entire laboring process.

Laura was a godsend to me after my baby was born. My son was born at 41 weeks, cute as a button and then taken from me immediately and whisked up to NICU. No one except Laura, who had unfortunately lived through the same thing, knew how to help me. Her words, her texts and her visit, were exactly what I needed. I tell moms now the same thing she told me when they dont get to take their babies home right away. And on top of everything else, she talked me through pumping and maintaining a milk supply so I was able to breast feed. I didnt have a doula but I can't think of anyone who would make a better one. I'm positive this will be the thing she is best at, and the woman can bake so that's saying something. ?
