Testimonial for Shari Aizenman

This being our first child, my husband and I knew we'd need a lot of support during the pregnancy, birth and postpartum. I also knew there was much for us to learn, but wasn't sure where to start.

We knew instantly that Shari would be the right fit for us. She is very upfront and aggressive, as needed, in communicating.We knew instantly that she'd have no problem taking control when we needed it most and that we could trust her when we were most vulnerable.

She sent me relevant information throughout the pregnancy andpostpartum phase. The information is timely based on the phase we are in so it doesn't overwhelm us and often answers our questions just as they arise.

In addition to providing excellent doula services, she also offers massage therapy.

She knows everyone in the prenatal and labor community. She helped us find our labor class and placenta encapsulation specialist.

She was also very helpful in counseling us on setting up boundaries with our family and friends.Shari guided us through effectively communicating our needs while also setting up a safe space for me and our new family unit.

Her response time to questions is impeccable - usually within minutes. When my slow induction suddenly took a turn to an emergency cesarean, Shari was at the hospital in less than 20 minutes supporting my husband and ensuring the birth plan was followed. She made certain the placenta was saved, which has helped me tremendously with recovery. She helped my husband get immediate skin to skin contact. While I was still coming to in the recovery room she helped the baby latch for his first nursing and a whole host of other details that made all the difference in my birth experience.

Since the birth, her postpartum visits are great. As always, she's just a text or phone call away if we have any questions.

We adore Shari and cannot imagine a birth without her.
