Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

I'm so grateful that we had Laura with us for the birth of our daughter. Before labor and delivery, Laura offered amazing support during my pregnancy, patiently answering the many questions I had as a first time mom. Her advice not only helped me physically but also emotionally. During my labor, Laura's presence and knowledge continued to be immensly helpful. She helped me remain present and focused, even as my desired birth plan took a few unexpected turns due to my daughter's OP position and the need to be induced at 41 weeks. Throughout my labor, she helped me find positions to manage pain and help my baby move; she also offered great gudience when circumstances required that I make decisions to deivate from 'my plan.' I appreciate that she did so in a way that was so supportive and level-headed. I have no doubt that her prescence and direction allowed me to achieve the vaginal birth I had hoped for and prevented me from needing a C-Section. After my daugherter was born, working with Laura also helped connect me quickly to an LC through NDDA. The ability to connect with the right support team quickly was integral in early breastfeeding success. Having a doula, and espeically Laura, made the birth of my first child a positive and joyful experience.
