Fantastic experience. We are so grateful that we had Sue with us as we welcomed our first son into the world. Her knowledge and support was so helpful during our very long labor! She has been with us every step of the way through pregnancy, birth and postpartum!
Sue was an amazing doula! From our first interaction to after my son's birth, Sue was incredibly responsive, kind, knowledgeable and caring. Although this was our second birth and child, I learned so much from her regarding the labor process, what to include in a birth plan, pain management options, and what to expect the first few days/weeks with a newborn. While she wasn't able to be physically present during the birth due to circumstances outside of her control, Sue still provided support via text every step of the way. I had a great birth experience because of her ongoing support and because I was able to implement some of the pain management and laboring strategies we discussed during our prenatal visits and while we made my birth plan. She she also provided wonderful support after the birth through frequent follow ups and a home visit. I also highly recommend taking the breastfeeding course she offers! Breastfeeding this time around has been a breeze (which wasn't the case with my first) and I truly believe it is because of what I learned in that course. We would not hesitate to work with Sue again if we have another child!!
We hired Sue Chargo for our doula. This was our first child and we did not know what was going to happen for our first child so it was very helpful being able to ask her questions about all the variables that could happen. Also, when the doctor was recommending some things, I got to talk it out with Sue to figure out if that was the best solution for myself and my husband. She is very orgainzed, and great with communictation. Everything in the birth went very smoothly and along the whole way I knew exactly what was happening and fully educated on all of my options during birth. Sue will teach you all these options so when it comes time to making a decision you know how to answer in the moment. I would highly recommend Sue to help you during the process of your birth. She will help write your birth plan, help with your hospital packing list for mother, father, snacks, baby. She also offers a virtual education course. Andrew + Lebrisia Iversen
Our experience with Sue was absolutely amazing. We felt comfortable and supported by her from our very first meeting, and this continued throughout my pregnancy. She is incredibly knowledgable and her approach is very warm and non-judgmental. Sue was such a critical support for us after going into labor a month earlier than expected, and she was with us every step of the way. Her support and guidance during my delivery was a substantial factor to having an overall positive labor experience. She has been an ongoing support post-delivery, and is always there to answer any questions, give resources, and/or to continue to offer ongoing support. We are so grateful to have found Sue and to have been able to utilize her during my pregnancy, and any expecting woman/family would be lucky to work with her!
