"Having not breastfed my first two babies, I was determined to do it the 3rd time around! I met Sharen through a Big City Mom's event and immediately booked her for a prenatal class at my home. The information she shared was invaluable and helped me pinpoint what went wrong during my first two experiences. This time I got off to a good start and my baby and I continue going strong at 7 months! Sharen is undoubtedly meant to do this work! It comes through with how she explains things and through the continuous support she provides."
"If my baby could speak, she would have said, "thanks mom for inviting this woman into our home!" When Sharen walked into my apartment last year, my baby was screaming her head off and Sharen handled the situation with so much grace. She immediately showed me how I could calm her. Her gentle ability to help me calm my baby, instantly made me feel that we would have a good meeting. Sharen spoke to me as if I were her sister, and it made me feel so incredibly comfortable and supported. After our meeting, the pain I was experiencing subsided and she continued reaching out to check up on me, when I least expected it. She is such a special person and I'm so thankful for my friend who referred her!"
