I didn't have any support here in this country. I can't imagine what I would have done without Shannon. I didn't have have insurance, she helped me apply and choose a plan, she found me a midwife and a good hospital. She attened apppitments with me and helped me write a birth plan. Allah gave Sakina to my heart because of Shannon. My husband was also so grateful to Shannon and all her support. She visted me many times, bringing helpful tools such as a birth ball, steaming chiar, and herbal tea. When I was in labor Shannon took me to the hospital, she prepared her car for an emergency birth. We almost didn't make it, she calmly coached me through contractions in the car when I felt like pushing. When we arrived at the hospital I was rushed to a room and was told it was time to push. I felt exhaused but Shannon motovated me and held my leg. Alhamdulillah my son was born healthy. Shannon stayed with me overnight, as my husband had to stay home with out daughter. She changed my baby's diapers and had the lactation consultant come help me with breastfeeding. She's visted me several times postpartum helping me with bellybinding and steaming. She did little things that made a huge differnece such as bringing homemade cookies and a card. In my country husbands don't attend the birth and that is normal. Shannon helped me in ways that only a Muslim woman can. Choosing Shannon to attend your birth will be one of the best decisions of your life inshAllah.
