Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

Laura was such a godsend during my entire pregnancy/labor/delivery/and the first few days postpartum! From our first meeting, Laura put me at ease. She was super personable and knowledgeable and fostered trust, allowing this type A, first time momma to be more relaxed through pregnancy and during labor and delivery. One thing (of many!) that I love about Laura is that she is solution oriented. I was able to text Laura about any questions that I had and she was always able to offer insight and recommend several options for addressing the issue. She was the same way throughout my labor and delivery. She offered pain management solutions, was able to book me a last minute chiropractic appointment to ease my back labor pain, and offered options for next steps throughout labor to ensure that it kept moving forward--even while in the hospital! She was the one that suggested next steps to make sure I kept making progress and was able to push correctly. She also provided so much relief with different postion ideas and by providing counterpressure for the whole time. Laura was so essential to my labor and delivery that I became more stressed if she had to leave the room than if my husband did! Knowing that I had Laura allowed me to approach labor & delivery without fear. I knew that she would guide me and offer solutions throughout the whole process so I was not nervous or scared. I had a very positive labor and delivery experience and I credit a lot of that to Laura, her knowledge, and her calm but effective approach to the whole process.
