Testimonial #35


For our first child, though my husband and I chose to give birth in a hospital, we knew that for our second child, we wanted to labor and deliver in the comfort of our own home. After spending weeks calling midwives and even interviewing a few, we found Shannon and immediately knew we had found our midwife! Shannon is not only EXTREMELY knowledgeable about childbirth (she even offers doula training), she is sweet, down to earth, and always makes you feel like you are her only patient! She made herself available to answer all of our questions-usually within an hour of us texting about something. She also hosts monthly group prenatal meetings for her clients where patients can come and learn about things such as breastfeeding and comfort techniques while getting to know Shannon and other soon-to-be mommas. VERY helpful!!  Physically, I was a lot healthier and stronger for this birth than I was with my first. After having me do some blood tests, Shannon recommended various vitamins and supplements to help strengthen parts of my system that were weak. At her recommendation, I started taking substantial amounts of Vitamin D in this pregnancy to help increase my pain tolerance (who knew??). I firmly believe that’s the reason why I was 9cm dilated in labor and didn’t even realize it! Shannon was also great during my actual labor and delivery. Her calm demeanor helped keep me focused and on track during the hard times. She was very empathetic and made me feel like she was right in there with me! Labor and delivery was MUCH easier on me and recovering has been a breeze! If you want a knowledgeable midwife who will take an interest in every aspect of your pregnancy-Shannon is the one you want!  Marie, Kingwood, mother of Armand born October 12, 2015
