Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

Laura came to me during a crossroad in my prenatal care. At 15 weeks pregnant, due to some changes in my health and my medical history, I was no longer a candidate for a birthing center birth. I reached out for advice on the DFW Birth Options page and she offered to help me find the perfect provider and hospital. I was so impressed with her knowledge and willingness to help that I set up an appointment with her to discuss her doula services. I had been slightly traumatized by my previous hospital delivery with my son, she listened to my story, heard my concerns, and helped put my mind at ease. Prior to meeting her I had considered the possibility of a doula, but had never seriously inquired into their services. After my meeting with her I knew I needed her by my side, she was the missing piece in my birth plan. Fast forward to the big day. She was ready and waiting by the phone for the play-by-play updates until I needed her to come in. She was just as involved over the phone as she was in person. Then when she arrived, she did everything for me that I wanted and went on to do more than I could have ever imagined I needed. She has this ability to tap into your soul and know exactly what you need at the very moment you need it. My birth plan was for a delivery without pain medication. Just as I was beginning to have doubt creep into my mind, Laura stepped in and helped me dig deep to find strength I never knew I had. I have no doubt that the only reason I got the birth I wanted was because I had her by my side. Laura far exceeded any expectations I could have ever had. I had a completely different birth and post-partum experience this time around. I felt empowered, capable, and strong which allowed me to focus on my children and be a better mother to my sweet boys. If we decide to have more children in the future I will absolutely be calling on Laura again. I cannot express in words the gratitude I feel for her positive impact on my life.
