Testimonial for Laura Martin

Where to begin?  My husband and I knew we wanted to use a birthing doula, and after our first conversation with Laura, we knew we wanted to work with her.  From the moment we first spoke on the phone, we knew she would be the birthing support person we were looking for.  Our first conversation was super easy, enjoyable, and it left my husband and I feeling like we had a connection to her. Laura, and her team, were there for me every step of the way.  Laura provided weekly check-ins, was always available to answer my questions and give advice, and was a consistent source of positive energy for me along my birth journey. Laura is super knowledgable, reliable, and beyond amazing with our little girl, Avaline.  When it came time for my labor, Laura was by my side all the way.  I had communicated to her that my water broke, and she was there with me (on the phone), offering help and support, even throughout the night.  Once I got to the hospital, she met us there, and was coaching me every step of the way.  I really wanted to have a natural birth, and I know without her help and guidance along the way, it wouldn't have happened.  But I'm so happy to say that I had the natural birth I had wanted, and it's a journey that is so special, and something I will treasure for the rest of my life.  Laura is incredible with pregnancy support, but she really shines during labor.  She was able to help my husband support me in the process, too.  During the end of my labor, there were a few small complications, and without Laura in the room, I don't think my husband and I would've have had such a positive expereince through it all.  We also hired her for post pardum support, and that proved to be incredible as well. Laura helped me get into a good breast feeding routine, and was always available for help and advice through not only the exhaustion, but also all of the ups and downs of becoming new parents.
