Lauren Capone Shaka

As a FTM, I was anxious about labor and delivery so my husband and I did research and chose Shannon as our doula. Shannon exceeded all of our expectations—she was supportive, there when we needed, extremely knowledgeable, and helped us through a difficult delivery. I highly recommend Shannon to anyone who is looking for a doula to give them support and guidance through their labor and delivery.
