Testimonial for Donna Rigert

There are many difficult experiences in life, but none that appear to test the mind, body and will of a woman like childbirth.  Knowing this, my husband and I chose to utilize the strength, wisdom and support of a doula for the birth of our first baby.  We chose to meet with Donna based upon the warm reviews and her overall philosophy on the birthing experience, but we chose to work with her because of her kind spirit, loving acceptance and empathy.  There are many people who take on jobs for the money, recognition or just because.  Donna is a doula because of her passion and love for the birthing process, for new mothers, fathers and babies and for the miracle of each birth.  I struggle with chronic pain and the birthing experience made me quite nervous.  Donna's experience and gentleness provided both me and my husband with the ability to face our fears, work through them and come out with a better understanding of the incredible miracle that is birth.   She provided endless emotional and mental support throughout my pregnancy and added in a wide array of physical supports throughout my 46 hours of labor.  Donna helped us focus and remain calm  throughout each contraction and laughed with us and told stories in-between when I was able to relax.  When I was crushed in spirit, she comforted me and reminded me of the inner strength that all women possess.  She never let me feel as though I was alone in the process and she never let my husband feel left out or cast aside.  When an epidural was needed because of exhaustion, Donna continued to support us.  She was there for us no matter what.  Our little boy came into this world in a calm, loving environment, created by Donna.  There is no doubt that Donna is a gift to the doula world and I can confidently say that we would love to have her with us the next time around.  She will always have a special place within our hearts.
