Testimonial for Lora Schnurr CD CPD SBD CLS

I cannot begin to put into words what a blessing and answer to prayer Lora was, but I will do my best! My husband and I hired Lora for the birth of our first baby, who was due and born December 2019. Upon reading the Natural Hospital Childbirth and Birth Partner books, we decided wanted as natural a birth as possible to give our baby the best outcomes, only using interventions if deemed medically necessary for safety, and the evidence suggested that a doula would be helpful. We also hoped to find a doula who shared our faith and would be able to pray for and with us. Upon our interview with Lora, we knew right away that she was the perfect fit for what we needed. 

Lora emanates peace and calm, both of which very important in labor as well as in the months leading up to it. She provided lots of evidence-based information to help us be prepared in knowing what we wanted. She asked questions to understand us as individuals and a couple, so she could know how best to support us and meet our needs.

I had hoped for a birth center birth, due to some anxiety I have with hospitals, but due to finances we had to go with the hospital. Lora helped us think of ways to make the room as comfortable and homey as possible. I had a long labor that went through the night into the morning, all while being very sick. Between the support of Lora and my husband, I was still able to stick to our birth plan and have a natural birth. I know if it hadn't been for Lora, that probably would not have happened. 

Her postpartum care also made such a difference in my recovery time. She helped with practical tasks, as well as talking through and processing the experience as wanted.

My husband and I have both said that hiring Lora was one of the best investments we could have possibly made. She definitely helped give our family our best start, and I give her my absolute highest recommendation!
