Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

My wife was fairly well self-educated regarding the many facets of childbirth. I, on the other hand, was quite the opposite. Attempting to support my wife throughout forty-two hours of labor was far more draining than I had ever anticipated. This is one of the places where the doula truly shines. Laura Fortner entwined many invaluable aspects into the fabric of our birth experience. Laura's support by taking over while I caught a quick nap here and there was worth its' weight in gold. She offered up different laboring positions for my wife to experiment with, and she was always there to ensure I was being utilized to the best of my abilities and potential. Her calm demeanor and level-headed attitude lent itself graciously to our entire birthing experience, and she absorbed some of the stress and lent us peace-of-mind when things got hairy. She was even able to grab our camera several times to capture the journey as we were both immersed in the midst of becoming parents. As a first-time father, I cannot imagine having to go through that entire process without the support, coaching, and guidance of a competent doula like Laura. She has forever earned my thanks and gratitude.
