Testimonial for Donna Rigert

I just had my first baby in February 2023 and didn't know what to expect. I knew after my initial conversation with Donna that I would be in good hands throughout the entire pregnancy, birth and postpartum. She just seemed to "get" me and my husband's personalities and was so easy to talk to. She did 2 in home visits with my husband and me. She did some body work and showed me stretches and positions to do and was a wealth of information, answering all of my question and leaving me with a ton of resources. My plan was to give birth at a Birth Center but after a couple of elevated blood pressure readings, I had to be induced at the hospital. Donna reassured me with everything and I was able to call her on the spot with questions about induction methods. My baby came in the middle of a snow storm and much, much quicker than anyone was anticipating (nurses and midwives alike). When my husband called her at 1 am, she heard me in the background and knew it was time. It was so reassuring to have her there helping guide my husband with things he could do to be helpful, and cooled me off with damp cloths. She helped me make a couple more medical decisions on the spot as well and then when baby arrived, she immediately got to work placing her on my chest and guiding her to breast feed. She even gave my mother a ride back to her hotel in the middle of the snowstorm in the wee hours of the morning! She did another home visit a few days later with her delicious lactation cookies and answered my questions about breastfeeding. Overall, I cannot recommend mama Donna enough, especially not having family close by she's as close as you can get. Her warmth, light heartedness and experience made this first time mama feel so confident and calm.
