Testimonial for Shari Aizenman

I cannot say enough amazing things about Shari. Through this journey I not only gained an amazing doula, but a lifelong friend. Shari helped me through my journey of TOLA2C, with hopes of a VBA2C. She lifted me up in positivity and truly believed in me. She was there for me through my prenatal journey and provided information to help us make decisions regarding my birth and post partum baby care. When it came time for my birth, Shari came to my house and helped me labor in my tub- an experience I will never forget. I labored for 23 hours and could never have done it without Shari and Margaret's support. Not only did they know how to get me through each contraction, they supported my husband and helped him support me. Shari and Margaret were my advocates and helped me and my husband make every decision regarding me and my baby's care. Though my birth ended in a necessary cesarean, it was still one of the most empowering and incredible experiences I have ever been through. It was a completely different experience than my other births and I credit that to Shari and Margaret. Their support did not end at the birth of my baby. They provided insight and support as I processed my birth story and helped me accept the necessity of my surgical birth. Without them I do not know how I would have processed those emotions...it was so important to me to have people that I trusted that were skilled in natural birth there at my side. Shari had also recommended that I encapsulate my placenta, something that I was very skeptical about at first. After hearing so many overwhelmingly positive experiences, I decided to do it. I credit much of my wonderful post partum healing to those "happy pills." This was my 3rd c section and I have never bounced back physically or emotionally quite as quickly as I did this time. Shari is more than a doula- she is truly an angel among us. As a bonus, she is also an incredible massage therapist. Hands down, birth is better with Shari.
