Testimonial for Shari Aizenman

Shari is a wise and experienced doula, which sets her apart from many doulas in Atlanta.  Unlike many doulas who communicate their experience by number of births attended, Shari has no need to tout such statistics on her sleeve.  Her unrivaled experience hand-delivering babies under stressful conditions, calm demeanor, and maternal instinct make her what I believe to be "the doula of doulas".  At my labor and delivery, she was there to calm me during an unmedicated VBAC... I squeezed her hands and she helped guide the hospital staff.  I could not be anymore trusting of any doula more than Shari.  In addition, Shari inspired me to believe in myself to have a successful VBAC, since it was the most important thing to me.  Unmedicated delivery was NOT easy, but having Shari along with my midwife and husband made me believe in myself - the kind of support and care that a woman needs to be successful.  In addition, Shari is probably the best massage therapist I have ever been in the care of.  She specializes in prenatal massage, postpartum care, as well as watsu - a form of water-shiatsu.  Shari is the only therapist in the U.S. trained to do watsu.  Combined, Shari's doula expertise and experience, and her personal attention care made me a stronger and more confident woman in the delivery room.  She is also a person you cannot forget, someone who is a strong woman herself, and who will share her thoughts and opinions with you honestly and candidly, a characteristic that I found important and refreshing.
