Testimonial for Shannon Kent

Being pregnant during a pandemic and without your mother close, the arrival of my first child was a happy occasion but it riddled me with doubt. When I met Shannon in the fall of 2019, I made it clear that I needed someone to be a mother-like presence who could enable me to feel empowered to take charge of my birth experience. An advocate for me and teacher to my partner on how to best support me throughout labor were also necessary. Shannon was all this and more! When I felt like I could not keep going, Shannon coached me through my contractions and directed my partner on what to do. Having her in the room helped to create a calming presence that reinvigorated me with strength. When our son finally made his debut, a short 10 hours later, it felt as though Shannon "fit" right into the trio. She captured the very first moments of our new family with lovely pictures. Her supportive attention did not end after our labor was over either. She was responsive to all of my texts during those first few weeks when neither my partner nor I felt like we knew what we were doing. The experience with Shannon was magical and we plan to hire her again for all of our subsequent births.
