Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

I'll start with, I LOVE LAURA and NDDA. My birth story was definitely not as I expected it but she was there to support me every step of the way. From the moment I met her I knew it'd be the best decision to hire her on. She's always a text/phonecall/email away for anything I need now and needed during my pregnancy. She helped me find ways to get my labor started and gave me tons of ideas to get baby to go from OP to Anterior. Once it was time for baby to come she was literally just around the corner which was great because it was a quick labor. I imagined a slow build into labor and trying to go 100% natural without medication or at the very least get farther than I did. My labor was in hyperspeed, I went from 0-4cm in less than 2 hours and from my first contraction to delivery it was about 8 hours. She was very familiar with my OB and nurses and it felt like one big team helping and cheering me on and having her there really allowed my husband to have intimate moments with me making me feel so comfortable. I was able to talk to him and focus on him and those are moments I'll cherish forever. She also got some great first moment shots of us and those photos are my favorite. Her contacts seem endless especially with help for breastfeeding which was a journey in itself that I needed a lot of support for and she was there. I still feel like she's part of the family even though we haven't seen each other in a while – it's like having that awesome kooky aunt who just gets you and is always there to support you when you need it. We are ever grateful to her. Thanks Laura! <3
