Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

We recently partnered with Laura and NDDA for the birth of our first baby, and hiring Laura was without a doubt one of the best decisions we made throughout my pregnancy.  From the initial consultation to supporting our change in provider, developing our birth plan and weekly check-ins, she provided incredible advice that helped my husband and I prepare for birth. She was always prompt to respond and thorough with her communication. 

When our son's birth day came, she coached us through our lengthy labor over text and over the phone before joining us in person for active labor.  Throughout our experience, she guided my husband on how to physically support me through contractions, always one step ahead and anticipating my needs.  She was an incredibly encouraging coach who led us through the process with kindness, calm and unwavering strength.  She also helped us navigate through a few unexpected decisions that had to be made on the fly, and was a true advocate for our family.  She was the consistent presence for us at the hospital between rotating nurses and a reliable resource that I knew had our best interests, and safety, at heart. 

Post birth, she checked in regularly over text and came to visit us at home within a week for a postpartum visit.  She also connected me with a lactation consultant to help me through some early breast feeding challenges.  Laura was an invaluable part of our birth story and I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone considering a doula for their birth experience!
