Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

I knew I wanted extra support with my third baby & first home birth, as my first two were hospital & left me feeling like I had no voice. I knew I needed a healing birth. I met Laura in my second trimester via DoulaMatch.net - She was amazing from our first meeting; willing to help with any information or questions I had. She offered to share several books from her library with my husband & I. She also emailed me links to home birth stories & videos to share with my two boys to help them prepare for the birth of their sister. During the late stages of pregnancy Laura was very helpful with techniques to help with pain management due to pelvic pain & offered words of encouragement as I dealt with false labor. When I actually went into labour I felt like I could call when I needed and I was very supported. When I went into labor, Laura arrived & helped me by saying aloud some of the birth affirmations I had on my wall in my birth space. She held my hand & reminded me that I was made for this moment! It made me feel safe, confident & cared for. She was amazing!! And still is, coming by for my postpartum check up & remaining in touch. She was made to doula! If there are any more babies in the future, my husband & I will certainly call on her again. We highly recommend her!
