Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

Within the first few weeks of hiring Laura she found us the perfect vbac doctor, also one who fit my high risk complications, as well as an amazing chiropractor. Laura took the time to listen to the story of my first birth, she could see and recognize my hurt,she help me find a "healing from a traumatic birth" class and held my hand through the hard process of reliving and facing the trauma of my first birth.From day one She was there to answer questions and connected me to resources I needed. She navigated through my high risk complications and always ensured that me and baby were taken care! She educated me and she gave me the strength I needed to demand what my desires were. With my 2nd delivery she walked me through a 2 day induction, through my repeat gentle C-section she advocated for us and I had my birth playlist, the clear drape to watch my baby being brought out, given that golden hour of skin to skin, I was able to latch right away, not once was my baby taken away from me,and I felt like I was heard. It was a healing, beautiful belly birth,I know we would not have had such a wonderful experience had it not been for Laura!When I developed sever PPD She recognized the signs and found me help. When we later hired her for our third pregnancy she was prepared for everything and encouraged me to do placenta encapsulation.I can 100% say that placenta encapsulation was one of the biggest factors to a better recovery!When it came down for our 4th baby, I found myself being bullied and cornered by hospital staff and with one simple phone call she gave me all the power and courage to speak up and demand I be heard, yet again she gave me the courage to fight for me and baby! Laura has loved on our family and has brought me into a sisterhood of empowering women. She truly is such a beautiful soul and her passion for her work shows in how whole heartedly she does everything and how commited she is to each and every single one of her clients!
