Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

Working with NDDA was the best choice we could have made for our hospital birth. Laura walked hand-in-hand with us from start to finish preparing us for every fork in the road decision that makes up a birthing plan. As this was my first biological child and an IVF pregnancy at 38, we knew high risk moments could be part of the process. My preference was a natural, medication-free birth, however with preeclampsia striking late in my pregnancy, this simply wasn't the way my body would progress. Had Laura not been there to answer questions and coach us through the emotional process of navigating these changes in plans, our birth experience would have been full of panic and fear. However, she coached and supported us along the path that was best for my body and baby which ended up in the most peaceful c-section experience complete with Taylor Swift soundtrack and our perfect baby boy. I cannot recommend Laura and NDDA enough - her kindness and strength provided me with peace, resolve, and knowledge so I felt empowered during my labor and delivery.
