Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

Laura is a rockstar. Throughout my pregnancy she was thoughtful, kind, and was always available to answer my random questions in a way that told me she cared (and she knew what she was talking about!). An unusual scan at 38 weeks sent me to L&D sooner than expected. I was scared not only for my baby, but I was nervous that I wouldn't get the birth experience I had hoped for. Laura answered my emotional phone call with a calm assurance that my baby and birth plan were in good hands. Her knowledge and experience - along with her unwavering confidence in me - helped guide me to have an unmedicated birth...with an induction! There were several times during labor that I didnt believe I had the strength to go on and Laura was right there reminding me that I am a warrior queen about to meet my baby. With her support, I was able to do it the way I wanted and was blessed to welcome a healthy baby boy. We loved working with Laura and we are so glad she is part of our family's story.

P.S. from Dad: As a husband, the birth planning and labor & delivery process can feel so intimidating. It is hard to know what to do and when to do it. Even more than that, it is hard to know how to encourage your partner as they work through labor. Laura's knowledge and experience gave me the confidence to know what to do when that moment came and she was a guru in the delivery room helping me be in the right spots at the right time to support my wife. Couldn't recommend her more for any family getting ready to welcome a new baby.
