Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

During my pregnancy, it became apparent that I had some fears surrounding labor, birth, and the general possibility of things not going “according to plan.” It was recommended that I consider hiring a doula.

We met with Laura and knew right away that she was going to be great for us. My husband needed someone there to help guide him on what he could do to best help me during labor. I needed reassurance that I could handle whatever came our way.

I was able to labor at home with confidence as Laura checked in with us over the phone. When we made it to the birth center and the nurse asked us questions during labor and after birth, we were able to talk it over with Laura to make sure we understood our options and pick the best one for us. Her words of encouragement during labor and her straight forward answers to my questions made a huge difference in my experience.

We were fortunate to have a very “according to plan” birth experience. With that being said, we knew that if anything came up, we had Laura by our side to tackle it with us. It was wonderful to go into this life-changing experience with confidence and come out feeling empowered.
