Testimonial for Donna Rigert

My experience with Donna began 6 months ago. I was doing a search for a doula online to help me with the delivery of my 2nd child. I knew this time around, I needed a doula. My 1st child was born after several hours of labor and pushing without success of a natural delivery. At no time was my baby under any stress. It felt like everyone had given up on me, and I was wheeled in for a c-section. This time, I did not want that experience and was determined to hire a doula to be by my side. I interviewed Donna based on her sincere, online testimonials. She came to my home, and it felt as if a long lost friend had entered through my doors. Two months later, I started having preterm labor. Donna would check up on me to keep me calm and positive. Ten days before my due date, my water broke, and I immediately went in to labor. It happened so fast, that by the time I ended up in the hospital, I was 100% effaced and fully dilated. Donna rushed to my side; when they wheeled me to my room, there was no time for an epidural, and I was told to start pushing. With Donna by my side, and only after 30 mins of pushing, I did it! I had my natural, VBAC and a gorgeous baby boy in my arms (8 pounds, 12 ounces). I consider both of my births special and beautiful; this second one, empowered me. It also made me a firm believer that in addition to their spouse or partner, every pregnant woman needs a a doula by her side. I was so fortunate to have chosen Donna, and I wish I had her for my first birth. Donna also took pictures right when the baby was born, and she stayed with me and my husband a few hours after in the recovery room. She felt like a friend who had every right to be there with us and our new baby. Last but not least, she penned my birth story in words and photos that brought tears to my eyes. What a beautiful and final present my family has from Donna. She is a forever part of mine and my family's life. I wish all you mommas-to-be a happy, healthy pregnancy and baby!
