Testimonial for Shannon Kent

The best advice I can give expecting moms is have Shannon by your side! Her support leading up to birth is so helpful and her knowledge in the room is a game changer ! She is both lind and smart - will help you self advocate but always keep you in the "driver seat." She empowered my third birth and helped heal many emotional wounds I had from my previous births. I think  my thank you note to her sums it up best ! See below

Shannon,

Thank you again for all you did for me and my family; the outcome was absolutely wonderful- but the emotional healing that occurred in the process and decision making is the part I am most grateful for.

You were truly a lighthouse in a storm of information; you helped me to see that all options were within the realm of reality.  You held space for my feelings and hopes and also respected any and all decisions in came to.

I am not often one who can approach things “one step at a time” but with each “step” I reminded myself I made it further than before and had peace knowing that that would be enough regardless of outcome. It was never about vaginal over c-section above all else (though of course I’m happy with how this played out) it was about feeling involved in the decisions around my body and my care. You helped me advocate for myself and reminded me that my autonomy was an important piece of the puzzle and I deserved a seat at the decision making  table. Your support,  presence and knowledge undoubtedly was the linchpin that made this a VBAC vs a TOLAC. I am so grateful that I had someone I trusted so fully in the room to help me make decisions.

The families you’ve worked with are all so fortunate to have you! I know in my bones there are women who have been treated better as autonomous agents because of you.

You are wonderful and I am forever grateful!
