Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

Laura made our birth experience one that we will never forget. I went into labor 1 week early, and she met us at the hospital at about 1 AM ready to go.  By then I was 7 cm dialated and had opted for the epidural. It wasn't my first choice, but she did not make me feel bad about it. I labored with her coaching me and my husband the whole way. She was a cheerleader, a guide  and wise council for the whole wild ride. (Even with the epidural I was able to have active labor and feel my contractions. Just a note for those who are totally against it like I was.)

My husband and I are forever thankful for all the wonderful encouragement and support she offered the whole way through. She was there the full 12 hours, up until my little one latched on for the first time. She is also an expert in lactation as well  which is very helpful.

After the birth we had some trouble with my being able to sleep and she came to the house for a postpardum visit, she helped me with some feeding techniques where I was able to rest. She also stayed overnight so we were able to finally get a good clip of sleep since the baby was born. That really helped with our family's overall well being:)

I highly recommned Laura to anyone who is about to embark on this amazing journey. She is the perfect guide. No matter how much you think you know-- having her by your side will make this experience even more unforgetable.
