Testimonial for Laura DePasquale, CD(DONA)

There are no words to describe my experience with Laura. My husband and I often look back on the two births that we have had with her and genuinely believe she was an angel sent from God! :) and that is coming from a husband who was very hesitant to hire a doula since our experience during the first birth (with another doula) was pretty traumatic and the labor ended up in an emergency c section. Obviously not doulas fault but we felt like she didn't add anything to the experience... the first time I met laura I was already 32 weeks pregnant and terrified of birth... I was dreaming all day about a vbac but truly did not believe I could do it with lots of family members pushing me to go straight for a repeat section to avoid any risks.. Laura immediately recommended that I switch to Midwives (Avalon).. I was initially hesitant but after meeting them agreed.. prior to birth Laura invested significant amount of time in getting to know me, my fears and my desires for a natural birth...she provided many helpful recommendations pre, during and post partum. I can go on and on and on but please fellow moms if you are considering hiring a doula - hire Laura... I could NEVER have had two successful wonderful vbacs without her! During the births she was AT ALL TIMES by my side, holding my hand, saying ALL of the right things at the right time, she set up the bath tub and relaxing music, she utilized aroma therapy... I honestly could cry happiest tears thinking back to both of my births and she is the one to thank. I believe each one of us comes to Earth with a unique talent and if we are lucky to find it we really fulfill Gods work and impact lives. Thank you Laura for impacting my life in a HUGE way. My husband and I very often think of you and we send you gratitude and love! Thank you for guiding me through the most sacred experience of a woman's life - the experience of giving birth and bringing new life into this world! Xoxoxo
