Testimonial for Shari Aizenman

I am proud and honored to have had Shari's support during my VBAC in 2011. In the weeks leading up to my daughter's arrival, Shari worked to develop a solid, trusting relationship with my family. The groundwork she laid made all the difference and was critical to putting me at ease so I could do the work of birthing.

I was so thankful for her calm and reassuring presence. She moaned with me. She reminded me that birth is natural and normal, and that I'd get to see our baby very soon. I practiced hypnobirthing, and Shari knew just which key words to use to help me refocus when I felt out of control. When I looked her in the eye during a strong contraction and yelled, "This hurts!" Shari held eye contact and, in the calmest voice, said just three words: "This is birth." I cannot describe how powerful that made me feel at the very moment I needed support the most. She is masterful at encouraging people to aim higher, go further, and dig deeper. She taught me to truly believe in mind over matter.

Shari embodies an authentic spirit of support. You can't fake that; you just have it or you don't ... and she does. She also has an encyclopedic knowledge of birth and babies, an extraordinary asset essential for any woman who chooses such a journey. I feel confident in saying that she is capable of handling any situation with dignity and strength.
