Testimonial for Donna Rigert

A truly special lady.  I hired Donna to help with my 2nd pregnancy/birth. Although, I already had a successful natural birth with my first child, I wanted to make sure that the birth of my 2nd was just as special. I had a volunteer Doula at my 1st birth. She was very helpful but I wish I've met her prior to my labor. So when I got pregnant with my daughter, I knew that I wanted to hire a Doula that I could connect with. In my search, I was referred to Donna & 2 other ladies. All were very qualified and brought a lot to the table, but ultimately I chose Donna because we hit it off right away. I felt a connection to her that I hadn't with the other Doulas. She was warm, honest and spunky and I loved that about her. I will definitely hire Donna again if we decide to have our third child. Not only was she very attentive to my needs and feelings, but she also got my husband involved and more excited about the process. We met on a few occasions and spoke/corresponded often before the birth. She gave me pointers, answered questions and alleviated any doubts I had. I felt very comfortable with her during the entire process. She was gentle, well versed and encouraging. She helped to ground me & keep us focused during the whole experience, suggesting comfort measures, position changes, breathing techniques, and mantras. She worked well with the hospital staff and established a great rapport with the nurses. What I loved best about Donna is how comfortable she made me feel. I could be myself without judgement and I could fully rely on her to get me through whatever came my way. And she did just that; I had a beautiful, uncomplicated, unmediated birth and I owe a lot of that to her. Her services and help extended well after the birth. She checked in on us, provided lactation guidance, parenting support and followed up on our well being. She also provided us with a full detailed birth story and sent us the beautiful pictures she captured during the process.
