Testimonial for Shari Aizenman

Writing this review has left me finding it difficult to find the appropriate words to describe our experience.  Amazing, wonderful, incredible - Shari is all of these things but it was so much more.  This was our 2nd birth with her as our doula and we had more challenges this time around. Our son's head got stuck on my wife's pubic bone on the way out and she was hurtin' for certain.  But Shari was there guiding Adria the entire night, reminding her to use her Birthing from Within and Hypnobabies techniques, providing pressure, gentle massage and supportive coaching. And when my wife stopped progressing she worked with our midwife to come up with a plan to get our son to move into a better position.  I felt like I was inside the circle of wise women. She had us do some exercises, stretches, some other movement techniques she mastered from Spinning Babies and he moved.  Anywhere else with anyone but Shari and Anjali I think we would have ended up with a C-section.  After the birth we had some minor complications and she was still there when we needed her support.  She helped us even more after our first when we had trouble producing milk. If I could step through the screen and tell you face to face that you need Shari as your doula I would do it.  Child birthing is not for the faint of heart and you need a team around you. AND if you are going to be birthing in a hospital setting like we did with our first instead of a birth center or home birth you definitely need Shari there to protect you from the machine that many women unknowingly step into. She will fight for you to have the exact experience you want. She did this for us the first time around and I am eternally grateful. You will be too.
