Testimonial for Shari Aizenman

Shari was an INCREDIBLE postpartum doula for our family and I really cannot express how much she helped us in this testimonial. I had an unexpected medical emergency after the birth of my son which had me in the hospital for a couple of weeks and in the ICU for several days. Because our baby came three weeks early and our family was visiting from abroad, we were completely overwhelmed and alone at the hospital for several days while trying to deal with an incredibly challenging situation. 

Shari was a consistent source of support, knowledge and care for us during this time. She was a calm and assertive presence when everything around us was chaotic, frightening and filled with heavy uncertainty. 

She researched my heart condition and brought me information so that I could make informed decisions about my treatment. She helped advocate for my needs and our baby's needs with a stubborn hospital staff when my husband and I were too exhausted to do this for ourselves. She brought my husband coffee and real, non-hospital food, kept me company, and held and helped take care of our newborn baby when I wasn't able to. Shari knew how important breastfeeding was for me, and when I was told I couldn't breastfeed because of medication I was on, she helped me to find breastmilk donors.

Shari is passionate about birthing and helping newborns thrive and has a personal philosophy of serving others that far exceeds what you will find anywhere else. This woman is doula-excellence personified. I am limited to the amount I can write here, but I would be happy to answer any questions you may have about Shari if you are considering hiring her as your doula (You can contact me at gujjarigabrielle@gmail.com). Hire this woman. It will be one of the first and most important decisions you make for yourself as a mother and for your new baby.
