I felt so lucky from the first time I spoke with Sue Chargo on the phone, and I felt that same luck throughout my entire experience with her.  Sue is kind and easy to talk to, and as a new mom who was greatly impcted by the physical changes of having a baby, I loved having someone who was easy to be around and caring.  She wants to help and as she got to know me, she would proactively take care of items without me asking.  I felt comoftable and more confident in taking care of my baby because I knew Sue had tons of experience and could guide us as we figured out what a newborn needs.

If I could go back in time, I would have brought Sue into the picture sooner after my baby came home to dial down the overwhelm I felt.  Sue was always calm and positive, two things that were hard to naturally have with all the uncertainity we felt.  Her knowledge and patience are vast along with her dependability.  She coordinated a lot with me and always showed up on time, and I am grateful for all the time I spent with her.  I would work with Sue again, and I highly recommend her to others because she will ensure you and your family are taken of to the best of her ability.  From baby basics to helping around the house, Sue is open to assisting on anything I brought up.  I appreciate her humble yet helpful way, and I really loved working with Sue.

My husband and I could not be more grateful to have had Sue's support for the birth of our first baby. Leading up to the birth, we were so impressed and comforted by Sue's breadth of knowledge and calm confident demeanor that really put us at ease. She was accessible for all of our questions and helped us feel prepared for what to expect leading up to the big day. At the birth Sue was incredibly helpful. Both she and my husband were able to take turns providing me support during what ended up being a longer than anticipated delivery. Postpartum Sue continued to be an incredible part of my support system as she checked in regularly and continued to answer my questions as they came up. I truly couldn't imagine preparing for labor/delivery, the birth itself, or postpartum without Sue. We could not recommend her more and are so grateful for her support!




My husband and I knew we wanted a doula on our birth team. From our very first interaction with Sue, we knew she was the one! We met with Sue twice before our son was born, but Sue was always available to answer any questions we had outside of our meetings.

Sue is not only super knowledgeable but she is also friendly and encouraging. She listens to what you want for you birth plan and advocates for you during the labor and delivery process. Sue continues to make you feel important and follows up with an in home visit as well as follow up texts to see how things are going once you are home. We could not have asked for a more perfect Doula than Sue! I would recommend Sue over and over again!

I worked with Sue throughout my first pregnancy. She was incredibly helpful and I can't recommend her services enough! I found her online after deciding that I wanted the support of a doula for my first experience with labor/delivery. She had a great rating, ample experience, and lived close by. Additionally, I liked that she had the added lactation knowledge. My husband and I had a great first Zoom with her and immediately liked her friendly, open demeanor as well as her clear expertise. We signed a contract with her and met an additional time virtually prior to having her come to our house in the weeks leading up to my due date. Sue was incredibly helpful in assisting us with our birth plan. She laid out all our options and only offered opinions if we asked. She made it clear that she was open to everything from a natural childbirth to a fully medicated one. I never once felt pressured to do anything that I didn't want to do-- if anything, she helped answer questions I might have on all the options and presented the information in an unbiased manner. She brought her "tool bag" to our house and walked us through what labor might look like for us. After meeting with her both my husband and I felt more mentally, emotionally, and physically prepared for our upcoming day. When the real event happened, Sue was an incredible help at the hospital. She supported my husband through his nerves and gave him helpful tasks to accomplish. She was a major moral support to me and a cheerleader through the pushing process. I appreciated how she was able to take charge without ever stepping on any of the hospital staff (nurses and doctors) toes. She was very respectful of their time and space but clearly had my best interests at heart. After we got home from the hospital we had a great check in with her and I loved how she had documented our entire birth process and brought all the (now very foggy) details to us typed up. All in all, our experience was fantastic!
