Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

Laura exceeded all my expectations and I am forever grateful that I partnered with her for doula services. As a FTM overwhelmed by all the information and "advice" that clogs the pregnancy/birthing airwaves, I needed someone to help me find a sensible, customized way but could handle my independent streak. Signing on with Laura was one of the best pregnancy decisions that I made; she brought compassion, assurance, and won my trust in a heartbeat (not an easy task as I can be a reserved and private person).

I might not have ever considered a doula had I not attended a Medical City Dallas Birth Class / Hospital Tour that was taught by Laura. Her humor and insight and knowledge about everything related to pregnancy, L&D - including the most messy and "TMI" topics - made me realize how much I would benefit from her guidance. And her doula services made for an incredible experience. Laura was a listening ear, counselor, cheerleader, and encyclopedia all rolled into one package. Thanks to Laura, I felt more prepared, educated, and confident in my pregancy and birth than many experienced moms. She helped me navigate tricky OB/GYN conversations and create a birth plan based on flexibility and realistic expectations. Laura also helped my husband feel comfortable and knowledgeable, empowering him to give me the right support while feeling included throughout the process.

There is no doubt that my experiences with pregnancy, L&D, and postpartum support were made immensely better with Laura by my side. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for an exceptional doula!
