Testimonial for Shari Aizenman

Working with Shari was a wondeful experience and exceeded all my expectations regarding the work and role of a doula during labor and delivery. I am a very practical person and when I called Shari I had a very specific plan: “get to the hospital just to push”. I attend a very traditional practice and delivered at a very traditional hospital and was not likely to change but I knew I needed help during labor in order to have a natural delivery. The things that impressed me the most were:

1. Shari came to our home before delivery to meet my family and answer all our questions.

2. She encouraged me to send her updates throughout my pregnancy (doctors’ visits, swelling of legs, etc.) just to keep her informed and also to answer any questions or concerns.

3. The day of the deliver she came into our home and spent some time just observing which was VERY important in my opinion. She took the time to asses my progress and also the right way to approach me during labor.

4. Labor once she came into action was the most incredible experience, she was quick to make decisions. Once we arrived to the hospital she communicated very well with the staff and gave me what seem crystal clear instructions on how to position and push. Delivery went so fast the doctor did not even make it and I never got the IV drip. Need I say more? My baby boy was born in what seemed like a flash.

5. She stayed with us at the hospital until I felt conformable and was able to breastfeed my son and she has kept in touch ever since then.

This is my second child and I cannot imagine going through labor and delivery without Shari. She is an amazing doula!
