Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

When I decided to have a midwife-attended birth in a hospital setting, I brought up the idea of hiring a doula to my husband and honestly, he was pretty skeptical. He wondered why we needed to hire someone else to support me during labor because he was under the impression my midwife would be there with me the whole time in addition to himself. Laura was recommended to me by my midwife and after meeting with her for the first time, he was the one who realized how much we needed her (how could he coach me through something he had never been through?) and after having her with us through pregnancy, labor and postpartum, now even encourages our friends to hire doulas for their births since we had such a wonderful experience and he could focus on being with me in the moment instead of stressing! 

Laura is warm, friendly, knowledgeable and SO experienced! She knows ALL the "tricks" to make labor a better experience and is open and supportive to achieving your best birthing experience. I had a really long and physically demanding labor since my baby was OP and having her there, guiding me through labor positions, working in perfect tandem with my midwife, and encouraging me through tough decisions and intense contractions made such a difference in my labor experience! I really could not recommend Laura more highly and she is 100% part of my forever birth team.
