Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

I can’t thank Laura enough for her support during my pregnancy and especially on the day of my delivery.

Before the big day, just knowing that she would be there for me gave me great comfort as we were not sure my husband would be in town when I went into labor. Rather than stress about it, I could focus on knowing that regardless, Laura would be there to support me and my husband would show up when he could. She reached out several times to see how my pregnancy was going and how my OB and ultrasound appointments went. She was also loaded with great resources re preparing for my hospital stay, creating a birth plan and what necessities I needed to buy before bringing the baby home.

On my delivery day, she was perfectly attentive. She addressed needs I didn’t yet know I had. For example, she would be handing ice chips to me as I thought yea, ice chips would be perfect right now. She held my hand when I eventually had to have a C Section and it made me feel safe and supported. My husband was there but he was in the middle of his own experience while Laura’s focus was on me.

She was a consistent presence when the nurses staff had a shift change in the middle of my labor. The second nurse apparently was having her first day on the job. That should have been so stressful but I could relax knowing that Laura was still with me and everything would be ok, so I could continue to concentrate on myself and the labor.

Giving birth for the first time is very scary and painful. I am so very thankful that Laura was there, like a big sister, but better, to share her experience, support and guidance.

I absolutely recommend Laura without reservation.
