Testimonial for Shari Aizenman

Our experience with Shari was awesome! Our baby girl actually came in the car as we pulled into the hospital but the support we received from Shari afterwards was priceless! Shari met us at AMC and had a triage team waiting for us. Without hesitation, Shari took off her shirt and covered her up. She handed me the umbilical cord so that I could tell when it stopped pulsating. When it did, she clamped it and had my husband cut it then handed our daughter to him.

Then she helped me on to the gourney and took amazing care of me for the next two hours. She fed me and pumped me with juice and water because I said I felt a little shakey. I had not taken a breastfeeding class so helped me get her latched. Once we did that, she took the best photo of me, my daughter and my mother. She made sure that the nurses had my wishes as far as vaccinations, etc. and made sure I was nice and comfy before she left.

While we ended up needing very little support on birth day the support we received from Shari once we got home was invaluable. I had a VERY hard time with breast feeding. Being a nanny, I was very familiar with baby cries and although most newborns are not hungry for a day or two, my tiny girl was hungry our first night home and my colostrum wasn't doing it! A quick call to Shari and wihtin half an hour my husband came home with about 30 oz. of donor milk and dropper syringes.

Over the next 8 weeks. Shari connected us with two different donors in addition to providing us with hundreds of ounces of donor milk herself. Our daughter will be 3 months old next week and we receive regular supply from both of these donors. She was born 5lbs. 14oz. and now she weighs over 12 lbs. She has thrived due to the connection we had with Shari. Additionally, Shari payed us a visit and taught us a few baby tricks (that even I didn't know about) that REALLY helped us out.

Shari was an amazing doula and we will retain her again!
