Testimonial for Shari Aizenman

I am not even sure that I have the proper words to express how much I love Shari! She, hands down, helped to create the amazing birth experience that I had.

Due to insurance reasons, I delivered at a big hospital and with a large med-wife practice I wasn’t super comfortable with, so I wanted someone to be my advocate and also a strong voice for me throughout the process. My husband and I knew the moment we met her that she is who we wanted to support us during the birth of our second child.

Shari seems to know exactly what you need before you even know you need it. My first child was OP, and it was a very long and difficult labor. Shari sent me all sorts of information on baby positions & exercises to do to get my baby into the optimal birth position. My second birth was so different w/ a baby in the correct position, and I attribute much of that to the education I got from Shari! She is who I always turned to when I had questions (not my med-wife) and needed emotional support. I knew I could count on Shari to help talk through the different options and make me feel strong in my decisions.

I felt confident laboring at my house for a much longer time because I knew that Shari would know when it was time to head to the hospital. She knew I wanted to be there for the least amount of time possible (I was only at the hospital for 1 1/2 hours before my son was born). She was a great voice for me at the hospital during labor and after the birth, guiding us through the many questions nurses came in asking about and helping us preserve the birth we wanted (not letting them push us into something we didn’t want).

Shari is unbelievably generous, kind hearted, and so genuine. I am so grateful we met her, not only because my memories of my son’s birth are so happy because of her help, but also because she has become such a good friend to both me and my husband. As a bonus, she is also an amazing massage therapist!
