Testimonial for Shari Aizenman

I wanted to take some time to deeply express my gratitude at the role you played in Andrew’s birth. You know my birth history, so I went into his birth with high hopes but tried to maintain low expectations of myself. I was deeply afraid of failing, of my body not cooperating, of all the random unforeseen circumstances overwhelming my birth and dashing my last hope, last chance at having what I had strived for twice before.


In the weeks that have passed since, I find myself wanting to relive those hours that I labored under your knowledgeable and calm care. I keep replaying everything in my mind and I truly burst with pride that I was actually able to do it. Honestly neither my husband or I really thought that I would be able to. Your support, your knowledge, and your strength provided the framework that I was able to lean on and draw strength from. I also feel that your presence allowed my husband to bring out his inner hypnotist…a skill I had no idea he had! I have felt even closer to him after the birth. We both wanted him to have the leading role in the birth and you expertly guided him to be the support that I knew he was capable of but was too nervous to turn over to him alone.

I find myself being so sad that it’s all over, that it’s done and past. Whoever thought that anyone would want to go through labor again, but a part of me does! It was such a beautiful, life-changing experience for me. Sadly it is definitely my last rodeo, but I’m incredibly grateful that you helped me have the “perfect” birth. It was truly one of the highlights of my entire life.

So thank you…thank you…thank you. I think you realize the power of the work you do, but I know it’s always nice to be reminded. I’m exceptionally grateful for the beautiful way you helped me bring our last child into this world. I will never forget what you did for me and my family.
