Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

Laura made such a huge difference in my entire pregnancy and birth experience. I had my first child in December 2016, and in the months leading up, Laura provided support during frustrating moments with my doctors, a calming influence when I wanted to panic over every little thing, and advice when I experienced PUPPS during the last month of my pregnancy. When I finally started to have contractions, Laura kept in contact with me throughout the day, and when I was ready to go to the hospital, she actually told me which nurse to request on admission! I'm so glad she did because I ended up with the greatest support team I could have asked for - my husband, my nurse, and my amazing doula. Laura stayed up all night and somehow remained energetic (I got to the hospital at 8 pm and had my baby at 3 am). She gave me encouragement, comfort, and when I didn't think I could push anymore, gave me strength. Because of some minor complications during labor, my little boy had to be examined by NICU as soon as he was out. My husband was torn between staying by my side and going to our newborn baby's across the room. Because I had Laura with me, I was completely comfortable sending my husband to be with our child, while Laura stayed with me until I could hold him. She provided great advice after birth as well, and great resources when we needed extra help. I don't know when I'll have another child, but I do know that when I do, I will absolutely have Laura there with me.
