Testimonial for Shari Aizenman

For my daughter's birth, my husband and I knew we were aiming for a normal, physiologic birth. To improve our chances, we knew we wanted the support of an experienced and well-recommended doula. Shari was both of these. From the first meeting with Shari, we felt at ease and very confident in Shari's knowledge of evidence-based decision making for pregnancy and birth. Her guidance and confidence in my ability to birth my daughter was a huge reason why we were successful in laboring and having an intervention and medication free birth. Early in labor, she created a safe and protective environment in which to labor, and allowed me to stay at home for as long as possible. Her gentle touch and massage were such a perk! Towards the end of the birth, the position of my daughter's head was not optimal, and my cervix was swollen. My midwife suggested that an epidural might be necessary to slow down the progress of labor and increase the liklihood of a vaginal birth.  Shari's experience and intuition about what positions I could move in to allow birth to continue were essential and SO appreciated, and allowed me to continue to labor and deliver our healthy 8 lb 11oz baby girl. If you are looking for a protective, expert mama-bear to guide your birth with wisdom and love, I highly recommend Shari, she's wonderful.
