“I knew before we even tried to get pregnant again that I wanted a different route than the hospital birth I had with my daughter. After months of trying we found out we were pregnant with baby number 2. I knew immediately I wanted a water birth. I had been fascinated by alternate birthing options and alternate medical care. It took a bit to convince my other half to jump on board with this decision but, after weeks of researching he knew it was what my heart wanted. I found Shannon & I can’t express how important it is to know that she has this way about her that makes you feel so comfortable. I have high anxiety and she did wonders for my nerves. I knew as soon as we met her that she was perfect! I didn’t even bother to interview other midwives. Even my mother who has spent her whole life in the medical field knew I was in good hands.
Shannon goes out of her way to ensure your mind and body are in the right place. She had me on a vitamin regiment that did wonders for my strength to help prepare for labor. Her care helped with my energy and made me aware of my food intake as well. It was such a blessing to have such a strong, empowering birth team. Shannon and her team exceeded all of our expectations with everything from prenatal care, birth, and postpartum. Hunter even cleaned after birth and blew me away with her generosity trying to do laundry. The time Shannon takes to explain all of your questions and genuinely care about everyone shows. She helped bring a healthy 9lb 4 oz little boy in to this world, just the way I wanted, with a water birth from home. I can never express my gratitude for everything.
Her postpartum care is unmatched. I can’t even explain how wonderful it is that she provides postpartum care. We had struggles with rashes, breast feeding, thrush, etc. and she was just a text/email/call away to help. She provided such informative information. I am a stubborn woman so asking for help and seeking help after birth was hard for me. Shannon made sure to touch base regularly because she just knows you and wants to be there for you.
Beware though, if you decide to join her care you’ll never want to go back to your OBGYN because her care is like nothing you will receive from them.”
