Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

I am 38 years old and had my first baby in January 2016 – at 34 weeks.

My intention was to have my baby naturally, so I hired a doula for help. My sister used Laura and had a great experience, so we hired her. In the end, I was in the hospital prior to delivery with several complications, my baby was breach and born by emergency c-section. We were in the NICU for a week.

Even though I did not need Laura’s help for a natural delivery, I am thankful we hired her. Here’s what I found most beneficial:

Constant Source of Guidance. I was in the hospital 4 times during my pregnancy and I loved being able to text Laura at any time for additional insights, guidance and words of encouragement. She always responded very quickly to my texts and phone calls.

One-Stop Shop. Laura and her team offer a one–stop shop for everything from standard doula support to lactation, baby-wearing, birth classes, nursing classes, etc. I loved that because I didn’t want to shop around.

Private Classes. I preferred private birth and other classes. Laura was able to arrange all of this for my husband and me and our home. The prices were reasonable and I loved the private classes.

Post-Partem Support. From our week in the NICU to the post-partem visit, I appreciated Laura’s thoughtfulness and encouragement. From bring me a coffee to picking up pumping supplies, those little things meant so much at those stressful times. She also provided great advice to my husband and me when dealing with the stresses that go along with a new preemie baby.

C-Section Support. Laura attended my c-section and was able to stay with me in recovery while my husband went to the NICU. Having her guidance, support and familiar face was wonderful.

I am picky about service and I cannot say enough great things about Laura. I highly recommend her.
