Testimonial for Shannon Costa

For whom It may Concern,

 

My name is Ahanth Vedantham, and as a first time father going through the birth experience, there is alot to say. A lot to say about the expericne itself and alot to say about our Doula, Shannon Costa, who was there with us throughout the whole experience. I did not realize how mant small things along the way I had to worry about. The best analogy I can use is a wedding planner. The couple focuses on the wedding while the wedding planner takes care of all the other stuff to make the process as stress free as possible. And that is exactly what Shannon did. From the labor exercises and emotional support to shuttling family members to and from the hospital, she as a doula made it just about focusing on the beautiful experience of birth. 

In addition, Shannon has helped me from the perspective of a fellow Muslim. From the islamic perspective, every experience and process in life is a gateway to get closer to God and an opportunity in extracting the wisdom and progressing as individuals. An Islamic scholar once said, your Lord is one who takes you from immaturity to maturity according to your own specific design. Relating every part of the birthing experience back to this islamic paradigm is important for me and my wife, and having a muslim doula who is just as conscious of this paradigm was paramount to this whole endeavor. And was paramount to me growing as a man. 

As a man in this scenario, my whole objective was to make the process as easy for my wife as possible. Shannon was there with me every step of the way, informing me how I could be more helpful, and how to know what to do and when to do it. As a first time father, I reccomend not only every couple to have a doula, but to have Shannon as a Doula specifically, as she was a priceless assett. We are forever grateful for her.
