Being a doula and childbirth educator is truly Laura’s calling in life. Her childbirth classes were informative and also a lot fun. After taking her classes, I felt ready for natural childbirth and my husband felt prepared to be my coach. As a doula, Laura was super supportive before, during and after labor. She and my husband were communicating during early labor so I didn’t have to worry about a thing other than laboring. Laura was such a breath of fresh air at the hospital as my husband and I were starting to get tired from laboring all day. She helped me get into more comfortable positions to ease the intensity and to help move things along. She and my husband were massaging my back and legs the entire time! When things were getting tough she kept me calm and reminded me to think about my baby and that soon I would be holding her in my arms. That helped so much. When I was finished she wiped my forehead, gave me a drink and applied lip gloss to my dried lips. So compassionate and nurturing. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
My husband and I attended Laura’s childbirth classes two years ago when we were expecting our first daughter. Her classes were extremely informative and fun. We looked forward to going each week! It was during her class that we learned of a birth doula. She attended my daughter’s birth and was amazing. I got to the hospital only minutes before being fully dilated and her presence was extremely calming during a quick and very intense labor. She gave me the reassurance and confidence that I could birth unmedicated. When I became pregnant again earlier this year, there was no question…I wanted Laura at this birth as well. There was no way I would birth without her! I had a wonderful birth experience with her when my second daughter was born a few weeks ago. She was with me every minute and through her encouraging and kind words gave me the confidence that I could have a second unmedicated birth. My husband and I love her and feel that she is a member of our family.
