Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

Laura was a wonderful, supportive coach and guide for my wife and me during the birth of our first child. From the first conversation, she was clear with expectations while also listening to our thoughts and concerns in a supportive way. On the day of, my wife's water broke at 4:45 in the morning, and when we called, as Laura instructed us, picked up the phone right away, asking what was going on and providing guidance for a quickly progressing early labor. Once it was clear we needed to get to the hospital, Laura was there as soon as my wife was admitted, before I could even get to delivery room.

My wife's labor ended up stalling and complications post-delivery lead to a traumatic and adverse experience at the hospital, but Laura was there with us after delivery, and checked in with us every day (at least once a day) until we were discharged and continued to stay in touch for the weeks afterward, checking in and providing recommendations for lactation consultants, pelvic floor therapists, and mental health professionals that specialize in birth trauma and postpartum mood disorders.

I believe that we were vastly more prepared and had a more positive birth experience with Laura's support than we otherwise would have without her. I would wholeheartedly recommend Laura as your doula if you have the opportunity.
