Testimonial for Donna Rigert

AI knew Donna was The One instantly! She made us both feel so comfortable and at ease! She has a knack for that! She encouraged me and offered an ear when I needed to vent! The next day she texted me suggesting I walk some stairs to see if that would help, and boy did it! I took to the stairs every chance I got that day and by the time I was in the car on the way home from work the contractions had begun! Donna came to my house later that evening to help me progress through the labor as far as we could before going to the hospital. She came with a bag of tricks that we quickly put to use, as I was having back labor. When my contractions were 5/1/1, we all shoved a quick meal down and loaded the caravan up to the hospital. My mom and sister had made it in town by then and Donna just felt like one of the family! By the time we got to the hospital they were 3 min apart, but i was not dilated enough to be taken into L&D. I was instructed to walk for two hours and was becoming very frustrated by this time b/c the pain was getting worse. Donna helped us all to stay calm and ask the right questions. Finally, we were ready to go up! I labored for 4 more hours before transition began and Donna was there encouraging and massaging along with my husband and family every step of the way! Finally it was time to push and after only 40 minutes I delivered a beautiful baby girl all natural! I was so proud of myself, I could not believe that I had truly done it! My husband and I are so very thankful that we had Donna there to help us get through it all with her encouragement, kindness, and skills to help me power through the worst of it, even when I didn't want to do it anymore! She has visited us since the birth with a nice meal and always been available and full of resources to help me with any questions or problems! Thank you Donna!
