Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

I have known the magnificent Laura Fortner for six years. Laura and I are both Birth Professionals and after the past weeks, I am so moved by her dedication to her families that I must post for moms-to-be. I have seen her in action with families too many times to count and I am always left in awe of this woman.

Laura Fortner is a salt of the earth, say-it-like-you-mean-it, dynamo. She gives generously of her time, her love, her compassion. You will want those qualities as a doula. When you work with Laura- she gives you everything she has and it is clear that she loves supporting moms during this special time. Laura is fiercely loyal and protective of the families she works with and this allows families to relax and enjoy their birth experience. More importantly, she has an amazing instinct that allows her to anticipate the needs of mothers and family members so they feel safe and taken care of. When Laura works with families, she genuinely listens to their needs and guides them with grace, experience and laughter.

It is also important to point out that Laura is very well known in most, if not all the hospitals and birth centers in the metroplex. She has great working relationships with the doctors, midwives and nurses you may encounter. She knows exactly how to advocate for her sweet moms and families. Laura Fortner is DONA certified and her skill set is exemplary. She knows a woman's body from head to toe. She will be able to tell you exactly what your body is doing and then she will support you with coping strategies, compassion and care. Laura is also passionate about maternal mental health and has been trained to screen moms for perinatal anxiety and depression and support them through that process.

Laura Fortner is a well-rounded expert in the Doula world. I would ask her to be my doula and I would refer my sister and best friend to her. You just need to meet her to believe it. She is lovely. Truly.
