Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

I am so thankful for Laura Fortner and North Dallas Doulas Associates! I had to switch care at the beginning of my second trimester and was so scared because I had already planned out my care provider and hopsital and I had been seeing them for weeks! I had to switch care due to insurance and my fear was that my choices would be limited and I would not get to have the natural friendly hospital birth that I had always wanted. I thought having a midwife was out of the question, and that none of the hospitals in my area would understand my wants and desires or tolerate a natural birth. My insurance gave me a list of providers and hospitals that I could go to but I had no idea what reputations they had or what their names meant, so I decided to go onto Facebook. Someone had suggested I join the "DFW Birth Options" Facebook page and I am so glad I did! After writing a post explaining my situation Dallas Doulas Assocaites responded that they could help me and I gladly took them up on it! When I met with Laura she was very clear, kind, understood my needs, answered ALL of my questions and even took the time to pull up all of 3 lists of providers and went down the line. She was able to recognize some names and highly recommended two OB's and a hospital that she knew personally. If she hadnt persisted on looking at the third list, she would have never seen a familiar midwife's name, found her hospital, or had been able to recommend her! "THAT'S who I recommend!" She exclaimed. She explained that I would have an all natural birth in a hospital setting, and that the hospital was all for natural brith/low intervention, and that it was an amazing midwife group under a few OB's. Which was EXACTLY what I was wanting and thought was out of the question! I am so thankful for Laura because I was able to leave the meeting with three amazing options and I was able to find the care that I have so longed and desired.
