Testimonial for Donna Rigert

My first two deliveries were not what I had hoped for. I had desperately wanted to have natural childbirth, but was clearly not prepared. I needed help. I had known Donna for a very long time. I knew her tenderness, her love, her compassion, and she was clearly a skilled doula. I had no idea what a profound impact having her would make for my third delivery.

The preparation she provided was itself a huge help. I was prepared with mental resources and a plan to push through the pain. She could walk me through what happened in my first two deliveries that lead to tension and lack of progression. She understood and helped me overcome those hurdles.

When the day came, she was there. She was calm. She was not only a support to me but to my husband. He felt like she allowed him to do what he was good at. He felt like it was the best birth experience for him because she fulfilled another role and allowed him to be the best husband in the experience.

One the biggest things that she offered was wisdom and experience. The doctor sent me from his office to the hospital because I was dilated to five and had mild contractions five minutes apart and was at 41 weeks. He wanted me on Pitocin right away. Alone, I would not have known another option, but Donna helped me to get my contractions going, to progress quickly and not need ANY Pitocin! And then have the baby three hours after I arrived. My doctor was impressed with her knowledge and her bedside manner.

She is really the reason that I had such a wonderful experience with this third delivery and I would highly recommend her over and over again! She made all the difference and I am abundantly thankful for her role in the birth of our son.
