Testimonial for Wendy Scharp

We hired Wendy to help us with the birth of our first child in the summer of 2012. To prepare for the big day, Wendy asked thought-provoking questions to help us decide what the ideal birth scenario would look like and provided us with resources and knowledge to answer any questions. My pregnancy went to 41 weeks and the doctors sought to induce. Wendy provided us with key questions to ask the doctors and helped prepare me mentally for the induction. In the end, the induction took 5 days, including 24 hours of labor followed by a c-section. This was not what we had pictured, but none of the problems were related to Wendy. In fact, she was a rock throughout the process. She helped us understand that we were empowered to make key decisions about the induction process. When I was finally in active labor, Wendy provided lot of support to my husband and gave me useful tips. And once it was decided to proceed to a c-section, we received permission from the hospital for Wendy to come into the surgical room. She not only took pictures of the birth but she also helped the baby to nurse within minutes of birth. This was a key goal of mine and I’m so happy that worked out. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Wendy. Even though we don’t see her every day now, I look back on our time together fondly and definitely count her as a friend.
