Testimonial for Donna Rigert

Throughout my pregnancy, Donna was very helpful and knowledgeable. Donna herself is a wealth of knowledge, but she also constantly shared helpful articles, websites, and videos with me, both during my pregnancy and postpartum. Any time I expressed concern about something, Donna would address it and would always follow up to make sure I was feeling comfortable or to make sure I didn't have any more questions. She also visited after baby was born and we were home to check up on us and make sure breastfeeding was going well for me (a huge concern I had had).

I know many people associate doulas with natural births, but I wish they wouldn't; having a doula is such a wonderful resource no matter what your birth plan/preferences. I personally did not have a "natural" birth and I found having a doula so very important--perhaps even more so since there are more options involved. Donna knew I wasn't planning on a natural birth, and was so helpful in helping me plan and make informed decisions about my birth plan and my options. Donna was never pushy on any subjects and was always "on my side".

Donna's positive energy and calming presence are such a huge asset in any situation, but especially during labor/birth. Being a first-time mom, I truly had no idea what to expect, but having Donna there put me at ease. She is an absolute rock star who remains calm and soothing even when dealing with a tired, fatigued, and crabby birthing mama!

Donna was also such an asset to my husband during the whole labor/birthing process. He was able to relax knowing someone else was there to help explain everything that was happening, and I know that I, too, found it helpful having her there to be another voice when it came to medical decisions.

I truly do not know what we would have done without Donna. She made one of the best days of our lives even better because everything seemed to go so smoothly. We highly recommend Donna for your doula!
