Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

Hiring Laura as my doula was the best decision I made for my pregnancy, labor, and delivery! This was my first pregnancy, so everything was new and I figured I needed all the help I could get to obtain the positive birth experience I wanted. Little did I know I gained so much more by having Laura with me every step of the way!! Half way through my pregnancy I had to switch providers, Laura was the first one I called and we talked through options- ultimately landing with an AMAZING group of midwives at a new hospital, a decision that ended up making my experience absolutely wonderful from that day on. Laura was quick to respond, knowledgeable, encouraging, supportive, and always went above and beyond! During labor, Laura worked so well with my husband to discuss where I was at and the best next steps. To delay going to the hospital as long as possible but remain close by, per my request, Laura invited us to labor with her at her office which really changed the game! Her knowledge of labor shined as she gave me practical things to do specific to my needs in the moment that got baby in a better position and things moving quicker! (Funny part- a bird pooped on me and Laura quickly went and got me a clean new shirt to wear, we ending up matching which I'm sure helped channel our energy and teamwork! Haha). She is wonderful at communicating and noticing needs. She was a soft encouragement and a strong push when I felt like giving up. Without a doubt, having Laura changed everything for me in pregnancy, labor, and postpartum! She continued to checkup on me after baby and provide any resources I needed! My husband and I both felt fully cared for by Laura from the moment we met her. She truly showed the depth that a doula is- an unending support, instant friend and sister! First thing I'll do next time around is call Laura! Do yourself a huge favor and call her too!
