Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

Hiring a doula is one of those decisions in life that I know I got right! Laura is simply amazing and our meeting, I believe is kismet. I met Laura while in the midst of cyberstalking another doula and waiting for a return phone call. Of course, less than 24 hours later, with no return call in sight, impatience won and the first profile I found on this site was Laura's. =)

When I initially called Laura, she promptly called me back and set an appointment for a meeting. In the meeting, she was very detailed and informative of the services she offered and her energy was vibrant. Plus she has this effervesant red hair that I love. Though one thing I always knew for sure about hiring a doula was that I wanted a holistic approach to childbirth and that I NEEDED support during pregnancy and while in labor. I truly felt that Laura understood what I wanted and would be a perfect fit for me.

Laura armed me with lots of support and resources such as a chiropractor, books, childbirth classes, and much more. She really came in handy when I decided to dump my OB/GYN at 35 weeks. She reached into her arsenal and provided me with THE BEST OB/GYN. The new doctor had a very modern/liberal minded mindset in regards to childbirth. She believes in childbirth being your own experience and not upsetting or deviating from that unless absolutely necessary.

I ended up needing to have a C-section due to some complications, but it was still an amazing experience in which Laura was there for. The hospital BUMC is the best! Had I not found Laura, my birth experience wouldn't be as nearly perfect as it was! ?? I will say that I find myself needing Laura more after the childbirth because parenting is new territory, but she has been there for me guiding me to the light! I am very greatful.
