Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

When I found Laura I was having a hard time with my doctor and my pregnancy because I needed to have my baby in 4 hours or less or he was going to do a c-section. I was stressed out and he didn’t share the idea of a doula either! I wanted one but my boyfriend wasn’t sure about needed one... I decided to emailed all the doulas I saw in this online page and the only person who replied back was Laura! We talked and I felt this instant connection with her that I went to tell my boyfriend. We met, she told me about this great doctor that was specialized in natural birth so I decided to look her up! After we talked, my boyfriend hired her! I was so happy! I was having my baby just with my boyfriend, my family wasn’t here so I was nervious, stressed out, scared... but I had my doula! And we changed the doctor! After meeting these two amazing women, the adventure started! Baby was breech so we gave her time to turn herself but she didn’t so we did the conversion and she decided to stayed But... she kept herself comfortable in there and the day we were waiting came 4 days earlier! Baby was ready to come out on her way... after everything I did, my contractions were to strong and we were tired. After 24 hrs of labor, I got a c-section. Baby was ok but her heartbeats were in the point of not mess with them. So we did it! We have Jolyse at 4:52 am on August 6th ??
Laura was with us the whole time, she supported me with the c-section, she was next to my boyfriend and me! That moment was magic, even when that wasn’t my plan, I’m glad my baby was healthy and beautiful. After this, my baby started to breastfeed and Laura was there, being supportive. Any question I had, she was there. Even today, if I need her, she is there for us!
This lady is amazing, I love her so much and I’m so glad she replied to that email. After everything we went through, she was a light in our path. I thank God every second for Laura!
