Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

I say this all the time: having a doula was the best decision we made during pregnancy.  I might talk about how great my doula is as much as I talk about how great my new baby is.  Seriously the support is that good. Laura is amazing.  Actually, so far, all of the doulas in Dallas Doulas are amazing.  They are very knowledgable, supportive and always avaiable.  It has been incredibly helpful in pregnancy and as a new mom.  
Laura has played so so many roles in the time I've known her.  She was an advocate for me. I was 35 weeks when I started working with her and did not have an OBGYN. she and Melissa Espy-Muellar worked to find one for me who would uphold my birth plan.  Laura was an amazing birth coach.  She was there to support my decisions and help explain medical decisions I needed to make, but she did so much more.  She worked as a team with our midwife to create comfortable positions for me while in labor, and act as emotional support when I really started to lose it!  She has been especially helpful as a knowleable person to call when you need advice, especially as a new mom where I find myself in a whole new world, its nice to know I have a guide if I need one.  Since delivery she has continued to provide support with my baby.  When my kid had jaundice,  Laura reminded me of the importance of my intention to breastfeed rather than switch to formula.  She was also able to give referrals to other providers from pediatricians, to lactation consultants to pediatric dentists.  Overall I have been very appreciateive and grateful to have someone to call when freaking out or needing support who I know is knowledeable and has my best interest in mind!
