Testimonial for Donna Rigert

My husband, Nathan, and I had such a great experience with Donna.  I wanted to have a doula at my birth for the added comfort, support, experience and expertise.  Having a natural child birth was very important to me and statistically people that have doula are more successful giving birth naturally.  My husband and I interviewed Donna while I was in my second trimester.  She had such a positive energy and light that we knew she would be a fantastic addition to our birth experience!  We clicked with her immediately. She is also very enthusiastic and you can tell she loves what she does!! We met with her 2 times prior to the birth and she also accompanied us to an appointment with my midwife. She went over all of our wishes for the birth and wrote a birth plan for us. In the meetings she also went over relaxation techniques for labor. The week leading up to giving birth we had several false labor alarms. She was there to talk to on the phone every time. She also came out to our home when I had contractions 6 minutes apart at 5am. Unfortunately, once she arrived the contractions stopped but we made the best of it. We went for a long walk to get things moving again. She also accompanied us to my midwives appointment that morning. Twelve hours later I finally went into labor and Donna came directly from another birth, showing truly how dedicated she is to her clients! Donna was there during my labor to take care of me emotionally and physically. She was also a great support for my husband who needed the occasional break from the excitement! She massaged my back the whole time I was pushing while giving me encouragement. She also made sure that I was able to breastfeed before she left. Donna made our son's birth a positive experience!
