"Ohhh Shelly!! I always think of you so fondly...especially around my son's birthday every year and also whenever I think or talk about that day. You empowered me to do the vbac I wanted (that was definitely one of THE most empowering things I have ever done!). You told me I could do it and you believed in me. You were with me the entire way ( pre-labor and labor) Looking back, I am always amazed at how you intuitively knew what I needed at different stages of my labor. And you spoke for me when at times I couldn't or didn't know how to."
