Testimonial for Shari Aizenman

Shari is very well-established and respected in the birthing community.  She knows the best practitioners and can guide you wisely.  When I first met Shari, I was under the care of a midwife (med-wife) operating within a large Northside practice.  I was at 34 weeks and was told that if my breech baby did not turn, I would HAVE to have a C-Section.  I had been taking Bradley Birthing classes and very much wanted a natural birth, so this was very upsetting to me.  Shari gently guided me to Dr. Bootstaylor, who supports breech birth.  After interviewing with him, I knew this was exactly where I was supposed to be.  Shari supported me throughout the next several weeks as I worked through anxiety that the previous med-wife had given me about a natural breech birth.   When the time came, Shari and Margaret Byrne were right by my side as Dr. Bootstaylor and Anna, an Intown Midwifery intern, delivered my breech baby into the world without any interventions.  The birth was as smooth and uneventful as can be and my baby was strong and healthy.  I find it hard to fathom that at the hands of another doctor (almost any other doctor), I would have been an automatic c-section.   I can't thank Shari enough for steering me to Dr. Bootstaylor and for supporting me through the third trimester and birth so that I could have the birth experience that I wanted.
