Testimonial for Donna Rigert

Having Donna as our doula made every difference imaginable – so much so that words are truly incapable of capturing the extent of love and support she extended to us before, during, and after the birth of our daughter. I had a difficult and complicated birth due to personal health reasons where I wasn’t able to have an epidural, and Donna never left my side during my 20ish hour, in-hospital labor. There was a point where I was experiencing back labor and we needed to turn the baby because she was “spine to spine,” and Donna was able to help me do this when my doctors and nurses weren’t able to, by guiding me through specific movements until she turned. I can’t describe how relieved I was when our baby fully turned and my back labor went away.

There were points in my labor where I had to make personal decisions about which direction to take to deliver our baby, and Donna continually reminded me to use my intuition and supported my decisions by providing supplemental knowledge and encouragement. My husband bonded with Donna in a special way as he says he wouldn’t have been able to stay supportive of me for all that time without her there with us. He also cannot express in words what Donna was able to do for us both emotionally and physically – they took turns putting pressure on my hips during every single contraction while she rubbed my back and counted through each one to make them each as tolerable as possible.

I learned so much from Donna about not only the birth process but about myself and what I’m able to handle. Donna’s extensive experience and knowledge combined with her empathy and always-present state helped me find confidence and peace throughout. My husband and I are hugely blessed with having met and worked with Donna during this life-changing time in our lives.
