We came on as a client with Shannon at 36 weeks pregnant. My husband and I felt instantly connected to her on a personal level and the more we talked, the more comfortable we felt with her attending our birth. She has a peaceful spirit that provides comfort at ever prenatal appointment and through birthing. She has the knowledge and skill to handle anything birthing ‘throws’ her way. She stayed with me through my entire 19 hours of active labor with constant support and affirmation. I know that God provided her for us and that we would not have had the beautiful homebirth had she not been our midwife.  Emily, Houston, mother of Lucy born on August 17, 2013
