Testimonial for Shari Aizenman

We had Shari help us with both of my children’s births. One was in the hospital. I had already written a review for that birth in 2016. And one more recently at home. She was a huge help in both. In my hospital birth she served as more of an advocate and made sure I had help getting to see my midwife as soon as I got to the hospital, ensuring that the water temp in my birthing pool was comfortable, and helping me know my options immediately after the birth. She also served as a mentor throughout my pregnancy meeting with me multiple times and checking in via email and text pretty much weekly. In my second pregnancy I didn’t need as much support leading to the birth, but she made an effort to spend time with my son and let him become comfortable with her before the birth. In my home birth Shari came to help me labor and assess when the midwives needed to arrive. My labor was long and hard and Shari was able to focus on me while my partner cared for our son. She was amazing and I probably could have done it without her, but I wouldn’t have wanted to. She helped me try out different positions to get through contractions, took me on a walk outside, had my water break all over her feet, and helped me change positions while I pushed my daughter out. Warning: if you don’t want an extra member of your family’s village Shari may not be a good match. She may end up a life long friend. She also gave me a ton of supplies for my birth, so I did not need to purchase them.
