Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

I am an OBGYN and met Laura through my many patients who have chosen her to attend their births.   I have always recommended doula services to my patients, especially if they desire natural childbirth.   However my perspective has changed to this being not only recommended but a NECESSITY.  I had Laura supporting me at my birth of my second son.   I hadn't totally committed to a natural birth, but things happened so quickly that was what happened (for which I am very thankful).  The contractions became intense extremely quickly and if I hadn't had Laura there I would have had a great deal more fear.  She was perfect: positioning me, giving me counter pressure and talking me through the pain.  It was like she knew what I needed before I could ask for it ( and I was so in the zone I couldn't really ask for anything).   I loved my OB, who is a dear friend and extremely supportive, but a doula really fulfills another role for your birth experience.  I will obviously continue to send my patients to Laura and recommend her very highly as an experienced doula who works well with your doctor ( which helps us too!) and will help you achieve the birth experience you desire, whatever that is!
