Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

I had a lot of fear from my first birth. Being induced at 37 weeks brought a lot of trauma. I wanted a redemptive birth where I felt in control and the least amount of pain possible with the best recovery possible. Laura knew how I felt and she came alongside me in achieving that goal. From answering all my questions during pregnancy to when I went over my due date. Laura helped walk me through going over my due date. I was so anxious about being induced again and Laura reassured me of how normal it is to go over 40 weeks. She helped me make decisions on how to jump start labor and to stick up for myself when providers maybe didn't see eye to eye with me. When we got to the hospital and I was 6 centimeters dilated and my water hadn't broke yet, I was already so exhausted I started to worry I wouldn't have the strength to push this baby out when they decided to finally come. She comforted me and reminded me how to help my body. When I finally decided to get an epidural she made sure I had everything I needed so I could still push on my side. I got a doula because I needed someone in my corner who knew how to support what I needed and wanted and marry the two perfectly. I loved having Laura by my side. My birth was beautiful and I would not have been so confident in that if Laura hadn't helped with pursing it and walking it out.
