Testimonial for Laura DePasquale, CD(DONA)

We hired Laura to help us achieve our VBAC.  I had never labored with my son because he was breech, and wanted to do everything in my power to have a successful vaginal delivery.  While initially I wasn't nervous about entering into labor, the closer I got to D ( delivery) day the more anxious I got.  She was so great at brining my anxiety levels down and helping me feel calm about the approaching day.  She also guided me to ask my doctors important questions that helped to establish my expectations for my experience and create a birth plan that everyone was comfortable with.

She was also such a great help in easing my husband's anxiety's about the experience.  He said " I don't know what I would have done without her".  It's really difficult for a husband to see his wife go through so much pain, and she was able to keep him calm and assure him that everything was fine... which in turn helped him support me more leading up to the big day and during labor.

While I had hoped and prepared for an unmedicated birth; eventually I did choose to have an epidural.  She never made me feel uncomfortable with my decision to do so.  And in the end, we both agreed that everything happens for a reason, and that it probably saved me from a second c-section.

We are both so happy to have shared our birth experience with Laura.  She will always be a part of that special day.

Katie and Steve
