Testimonial for Shari Aizenman

Shari and her partner Margaret were an incredible support system to my wife and me during my wife's pregnancy and our daughter's birth. Shari sent us (and continues to send) informative articles to prepare us for labor and parenting, met with us to go over the birth plan, recommended wonderful classes to prepare us for labor, connected us with a terrific lactation consultant, and shared her tremendous birth experiences with us. She was always on call (even in the middle of the night) to answer questions and ease our minds; she even helped my wife pick a midwife practice that supported her birth plan and provided water births.

While the support that Shari and Maragaret gave to my wife during her labor was impeccable, Shari also gave me confidence as a labor partner. She encouraged me to be an active member of the support team, answered the many questions I had throughout the process, and also allowed me to grab a shower and a nap when my wife was resting (we had an incredibly long labor). i even got to catch the baby!

Her experience was helpful when making difficult choices about possible interventions during birth, and she helped my wife and I think through the pros and cons of each decision so we felt empowered -- we were never worried we were making the wrong decision.

I would recommend Shari to any of my friends, family, or a stranger on the street. We will hire her for any future births -- I am personnally relieved that I didn't have to support my wife on my own. My wife's laboring at the hospital could have been a really exhausting and terrifying experience and I was so thrilled to have a support system with experience to navigate the unknowns throughout the birth process.

We have had great post-partum support from Shari as well. She helped my wife nurse our daughter minutes after she was born, made sure we settled in comfortably at the hospital, and met with us a few weeks after birth to check in. Love Shari! Hire her!
