Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

I am certain my birth experience would not have been as close to what I hoped for without Laura's presence and help. She made it to the hospital almost as soon as we did, had me up and walking all through early labor, helped me during contactions by applying pressure and a hot pack to my lower back, showed my husband some ways he could help, and offered constant encouragement, which bolstered my resolve to stick to my plan. Even my husband, who was skeptical of why we needed a doula, saw the value of her role in the end and told me how much she really helped me through my labor. She even let me squeeze her hand to death while they were stitching me up. Laura is punctual, prepared, thoughtful, supportive, and dedicated to doing what she can to help you experience the birth of your child in the manner you desire and keeping you as comfortable as possible throughout that process. And she doesn't stop after birth. She is a wealth of knowledge for postpartum issues and continues to offer support and encouragement. Our son was severely tongue-tied which made nursing excruciating. She provided lactation resources and has followed up for weeks, checking in to see how things are going. I am so glad I convinced my husband that we needed her (I'll bet he is too) and I would certainly recommend her to anyone else seeking an extra support person for labor.
