Before I got pregnant I knew that I wanted an out of hospital birth. I am terrified of needles and I knew exactly the kind of birth I wanted. I had been researching for years and knew that at a hospital it would likely be a fight and that was the last thing I wanted to worry about while bringing a life into the world. I called ALL the area midwives and made lists and charts. I had a top 3. The day I found out I was pregnant I called Shannon and I just knew she was the one for me. I always had such a connection with her. Prenatal appointment were always something I looked forward to! When the time came to push this baby out it was everything I had hoped for.. Thanks in large part to Shannon! She made sure that all of my birth plan was followed including saying, “I’d tap that” to help me feel beautiful. She also remembered to have my doula play, “Eye of the Tiger” while I was pushing and didn’t even mind listening to it for hours on repeat! She was absolutely amazing I HIGHLY recommend her!  Melody, Katy, mother of Harmony born September 23, 2015.
