Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

From the moment I started talking with Laura during our interview, I knew she was an amazingly special woman.  I felt so safe and free to be my authentic self with her.  I come from a background of trauma and she had nothing but encouraging, powerful things to say in connecting to my journey of healing.  She is such an authentic woman who has done a lot of work on herself and fosters freedom in others.  She made calls all around town to get me into a birth center even though I was late in my pregnancy already.  She walked me through the difficult final stages of waiting for a labor that would not start.  She drove like a crazy woman to make it to my bedside before I was wheeled into the OR for my C-section.  She came to visit me during postpartum recovery and helped me stay sane in an environment that was walking all over my boundaries.  She walked me through the difficult beginning stages of my milk coming in.  She diagnosed my son's tongue and upper lip ties; some of the hospital lactation staff were hard to get a hold of and then making me feel like I was just not trying hard enough.  She reassured us that it was the right thing to do to get the laser oral surgery asap on our baby and recommended the most amazing dentist who understood the urgency of our needs.  When I was having a breakdown in the postpartum recovery, she called around to find a postpartum doula for me if I wanted one.  She makes me feel like meeting her was the best thing that has happened to me since moving to dallas. Laura is the epitome of what a doula means.  She is my friend.  My sister.  Laura is the biznas!
