Testimonial for Shannon Lee

Shannon provided calm, knowledgeable support and presence at our son's birth in July. This was our first birth experience and we wanted help staying as calm as possible to allow my body to do its work. With Shannon's support the intensity of labor was more manageable and therefore wonder-filled. And she did so quietly. I'm grateful that while Shannon is knowledgeable, she doesn't seek to prove it or talk all of the time. This allowed the experience to be guided by us and be the sacred moment that birth is.

I was afraid that having a stranger at my bedside during labor would make it less special and it might have if someone had a different way of being than Shannon. She was gentle, present, focused, willing, knowledgeable and kind. She provided information without overwhelming us. She allowed my husband to be the primary coach for me, and the experience brought us closer still. She offered verbal support and guidance as needed, as well as physical support.  She pushed on my sacrum for HOURS. It was pain relieving for me, though doubtlessly challenging for her. I kept worrying she might stop, but she didn't. Though I was a new person in her life, she was completely present and focused on my process. Her support alongside my husband helped me feel safe and calm during a vulnerable experience. We shared a birth experience that I feel proud of and treasure. Thank you, Shannon!
