Testimonial for Donna Rigert

My experience with Donna began with a referral from a trusted friend.  I wanted a doula to help me with the birth of my second baby because I was having a VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Caeseran).  I needed an advocate and someone in my court that would give me the confidence to have my baby as naturally as possible.  I spoke with Donna over the phone a few times before deciding to hire her and each time I spoke with her I felt more and more comfortable with her being apart of the birthing process.  Donna gave me references which solidified my confidence in her.  She also gave me lots of resources, ie: websites, videos, and reading material to help me get more familiar with VBACs and the birthing process itself.  She helped me to understand that I might be pushed to do a c-section, but that I could push back and take charge of my birth as long as there wasn't any danger.  I can tell you that when I got admitted to Central Dupage Hospital that my nurse was not completely on board with my desire to have a VBAC, but having Donna there gave me courage.  I was admitted on a Thursday and Donna quickly came to the hospital and began to give me help me with my contractions by showing me exercises and having me go into different positions.   During the hardest part of my labor, Donna encouraged me and was in tune with what I needed. I was so glad that she was there and I am proud to say that I was able to have the VBAC and gave birth to my daughter 24 hrs later.  Even after the birth, Donna stayed in the hospital for another hour.  She took pics and held my precious daughter.  Two weeks after the birth, she even came by with a meal and gift for my daughter.  She will forever be a special part of our lives.
