Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

From out first meeting, I knew Laura was my perfect doula match. She was so informative and answered all my questions. I felt extremely comfortable and confident that I could get rhough this with her by my side. If at any time I got nervous about my upcoming birth, she had reassuring words and helped give me a boost of confidence. Once my due date neared, she was always checking in on me, asking how I was feeling, and letting me know she was ready when I was. I gave her the updates after all my checkups, and I could tell she was getting as excited as I was to welcome my baby. As my labor started, it was night time, and she was there for me to report the changes I was feeling, as well as asked how close my contractions were,, and asking me if I thought it was time to go. My labor was extremely quick, only 3 hours, but as soon as I arrived at the hospital, she was there. I was quite advanced in my labor, so a lot of pain relief techniques weren't going to apply to me, as I was about ready to push once I arrived. Laura was at my side, holding my hand and helping me breathe, talking to me and letting me know that I could do this! Once baby was here, she stayed to make sure nursing went well and that I was feeling good. After my birth, Laura kept in contact me, visiting and messaging me. She also has helped me find a postpartum doula, and helped find a lactation consultant. I know that even though my baby is here, I still have a friend and a very helpful resource for life.
