Testimonial for Donna Rigert

When my husband and I found out we were expecting we were filled with joy, excitement and quite honestly...a bit of fear! Rarely do women share the "normal" birth stories and after 6 months of debating and hearing a slew of tales from other moms, I decided it was a good idea to find someone that could be a support person for both me and my husband during the main event.

Upon meeting with Donna the first time, we knew we'd found our match. She is fun and lighthearted while still being a true professional that knows her stuff! What I appreciated most was the way she worked with us as a team, and my husband never felt like his toes were being stepped on. Dancing that delicate line was key to my being okay with involving a "stranger" in the birth of our first child. After meeting with Donna the second time before the birth, she clearly was no longer a stranger. It was amazing how easily we all connected and I was no longer fearful as the big day approached.

My daughter Lillian was born one day early after an arduous "day" of labor. Donna was wonderful throughout the whole thing and the "doula squeeze" on my back and the imagery she provided was key to maintaining my calm demeanor.  After little progress in dilation and double peaking contractions, I finally gave in and asked for an epidural because I was just too exhausted; I learned later (and probably knew but didn't want to admit) that my epidural didn't actually work. As a team, my husband and Donna guided me through an hour and a half of pushing and I didn't even know!

Not only were we blessed to have the support of Donna during such a special moment, I truly feel I've gained a friend for life. We couldn't have made a better choice!

Love,

TeamJones
