Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

Selecting Laura as our birth doula was one of the best and most important decisions we made in the birth of our daughter. Before I had even signed a contract or placed a deposit on her services, she was already empowering me to listen to the red flags that I was seeing with my provider. From there, she helped me to find exactly the type of birth team I was looking for and helped eased my worry over switching doctors at 28 weeks pregnant.

Because of COVID, we didn't actually meet Laura in-person until it was go time, but she hopped in and it was like she was an old friend. We spent 3 hours with her trying to naturally induce labor by power and curb walking around the birth center and she helped me to walk through contractions with a firmness that my husband was too worried to give me. When plans had to changed, she supported our decisions without judgement and I felt confident knowing that she would speak up if she felt something was amiss. 

Through pushing and delivery, she was exactly the calming and encouraging presence we were looking for. She helped our baby to latch and establish a good start breastfeeding. On top of it all, she was able to snap some amazing photos throughout labor. 

If another baby is in our future, I definitely want Laura on our birth team and I couldn't recommend her more.
