Testimonial for Wendy Scharp

Wendy is amazing! She attended my wife's birth, and I believe that it is because of her that the birth was a positive experience for both of us. Wendy's work with us really began months before the birth: getting to know us, educating us about all of the medical options and comfort measures available to us during the birth, holding space for our concerns re: labor and our practitioners, and helping us to mentally and emotionally prepare for motherhood. At the birth Wendy made sure that we were both taking care of our bodies...drinking water, applying chapstick, supporting ourselves with pillows, etc. She encouraged my wife and suggested helpful positions and imagery to ease the contractions. Our baby experienced distress which required the use of a medical intervention during the birth, and Wendy made sure that we had space to ask questions and think through what was happening, which has made us feel good about the process in the months since the birth. She helped us connect with our daughter and get her latched onto the breast minutes after the birth, which is a memory filled with love and joy for me. Wendy was there for us postpartum too. She encapsulated my wife's placenta, which was incredibly helpful in replenishing lost blood, bringing in milk, and easing the baby blues. Her help in teaching us to nurse and feel confident caring for our daughter once we arrived home was so important to our wellbeing. Wendy is knowledgeable, nurturing, a great advocate, and fun too! We are so grateful to have worked with her.
