Testimonial for Shari Aizenman

Shari is an extraordinary person and a truly gifted doula. Throughout my pregnancy she was always available to answer my questions and provide relevant but not overbearing advice.She shared many educational articles, which helped me tremendously in making important decisions regarding my upcoming birth, caring for myself and for a newborn. From the moment I met her, I felt Shari truly cared about me and my upcoming birth. It was clear she not only wanted me to be informed but to share in the decision making process in childbirth. This was very important to me as I was planning an unmedicated VBAC and felt like I didn't have a large part of any decision during the birth of my first child. Shari spent a lot of time talking to me about my first birth. She could sense my first birth experience was still a sore spot for me and she introduced me to hypnotherapy, which healed the lingering issues from my prior experience. When I went into labor and needed her, Shari was at my house quickly. Shari suggested and supported me through many labor positions that helped my labor advance and my baby move into the optimal position to be born.I felt that Shari anticipated what I needed and provided it before I even asked.I wanted her to talk to me during pressure waves to distract me and she always had something meaningful to say and was never repetitive.There were times when she would whisper something in my ear and times when she would say something out loud and it was always the perfect time for what she was saying and how she delivered the message.She continually advocated for me with respect to the hospital staff. She made suggestions to my husband on how to be involved and help during certain labor positions.She kept me calm and in the right place mentally. After my baby was born Shari stayed by my side for a few hours. She checked in on me the following week and we've formed a friendship through our time together.I could not be more grateful to have had her by my side.
