Testimonial for Shari Aizenman

As a first time mom I was terrified of all that I didn't know about pregnancy and childbirth.  I was looking for labor support and what I found in Shari was so much more.  She empowered me and guided me through my entire pregnancy, answering every question I had, big or small.  Through her loving guidance I learned to accept and trust my pregnant body.  Her knowledge surrounding pregnancy and childbirth is amazing and she shares it freely and with enthusiasm.  She really wants her 'moms' to make educated decisions which feel right for them and their families.  When I realized that I would have to have a surgical birth, as opposed to the Hypnobabies birth I had been planning, Shari was wonderful.  She met me at the hospital at the crack of dawn and stayed with me and my husband throughout the pre-surgery chaos.  She lovingly massaged my feet and softly spoke positive affirmations to calm my nerves as I was prepped for surgery.  When my baby was born and we were taken to recovery, there was my smiling doula waiting for us.  She took beautiful pictures of those precious first moments.  She helped me initiate breastfeeding because she knew it was important to me.  She spoke for me when I was too overwhelmed by post surgery pain to answer questions for myself.  A cesarean was far from my original birth plan but having Shari there to offer support and guide me through the process allowed me to relax and remain open and flexible and recognize that THIS was my empowered birth.  And it was beautiful.
