Testimonial for Laura Fortner, CD(DONA)

Working with Laura and North Dallas Doulas Assoc has been hands down, the best decision for my pregnancy. At our initial meeting, Laura shared positive reviews for OBs and practices because I was unhappy with my current care, OB, and medical practice, and shared hospital delivery locations that favored maternal care. I switched OBs and my birthing hospital and it ended up being such a great decision.

Throughout my pregnancy, Laura was communicative whenever I had questions and we created a birth plan. When we got to the hospital, the birth plan went out the window, but having Laura there helped me feel empowered to continue to make choices best for me and my baby. We had a great delivery and it went well in large part from the prep I did with Laura regarding birthing positions and the online birthing class I took through NDDA. (It truly is a one-stop shop for all things labor, delivery, and postpartum!)

After delivery, Laura followed up with me both in the hospital and several days afterwards and was reassuring when I thought things were not going so well at home (but they were!)

I needed some guidance with lactation support and Laura immediately put me in contact with one of NDDA's IBLBC lactation consultants, Meredith, and she provided very helpful information via phone call and multiple videos.

I don’t know how I would have done it without working with Laura and North Dallas Doulas Assoc. I highly recommend Laura if you're looking for a level-headed doula with years of experience who is able to work well with all sorts of medical professionals, and able to work explain all the options available while allowing me to choose what was best for my and my baby and our health.
