Testimonial for Shari Aizenman

Shari is the consummate birth professional. Her support, knowledge, generous spirit and sense of humor were invaluable during my pregnancy, labor, birth and beyond. Shari shared timely, relevant information and articles throughout my pregnancy. She also spent time listening to my husband and addressing any concerns he had—which reinforced the understanding that we operate as a team. He appreciated that so much.

Even more so, he appreciated Shari’s calm, instructive manner on the phone after he delivered our baby at home unintentionally! Shari arrived before the paramedics and helped him cut the cord. At the hospital, she helped me relax (I was FULL of adrenaline after the delivery!) while the midwife and nurse examined me. During the weeks that followed, Shari knew how important breastfeeding was to us and not only provided breastfeeding support but also put us in touch with the right resources to make sure breastfeeding was successful.

In such a relatively short amount of time, but a time of significance to our family, Shari changed our lives for the better—simply by being there and being herself. Just recently we ran into Shari and our daughter locked eyes with her...I think she remembers the woman who helped her start life in comfort and security.

I think having the right team of practitioners to nurture and support a pregnancy can cut down on the fear many women and their partners feel about birth. For my husband and me, Shari was a reason to feel comfortable—we trusted her skill and judgement. Anyone who works with her will know they’re in capable, confident hands.
