Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

My husband and I highly recommend Laura. She was our doula for the recent birth of our first child. I had a difficult pregnancy and Laura was always reassuring, helpful, and available by text. We learned so much from the birth class offered at NDDA and felt prepared and ready for our birth. 

Due to medical complications, we were not able to have the unmedicated birth we planned and instead had an emergency C-section. Laura was amazing and so helpful during this experience. She walked us through all the medical decisions, supported us (including staying with me in the hospital room so my husband could leave to grab a quick meal in the cafeteria), and walked us through each step of the C-section before it started so we would know what was happening. Afterwards, she helped us facilitate skin to skin and got our baby latched and nursing. She was also so helpful at the follow up visit in our home. 

We could not have navigated this difficult and tumultuous experience so gracefully had it not been for Laura. We are so grateful to her and recommend her to anyone considering a doula. You won't regret it.
