After having a tough first pregnancy and delivery I decided to use a doula for my second. When my husband and I met with Sue to talk about her services and what we were hoping for we knew right then that she was a great fit for us! It was one of the best decisions we could have made hiring Sue! Not only was she there for my delivery but she was there for me during my entire pregnancy and postpartum recovery and would answer all of my crazy questions. She met with us a few times before delivery and a few times after to help me with a birth plan and answer any questions. She even still checks in with me months after my daughter was born. She was very easy to get a hold of any time day or night and was always reminding me I can call her for anything I need. She has such a wonderful, calming personality and is the nicest person I've ever met! She is very knowledgable and was always prepared. When my daughter was born Sue captured some of the first moments we had with her and I will cherish those photos forever!! Thank you Sue for everything!!

Sue was wonderful! My husband and I would highly recommend her. We ended up having a more complicated delivery and I am not sure how we would have done it without Sue. She was not only supportive to me but also to my husband. She was very knowledgeable and open minded. My husband and I really wanted to find someone that did not push their beliefs about the birth process on us. Sue was great and gave us information to make decisions that were best for us. I also really appreciated and found valuable her help after the baby was born with home visits. She helped with whatever I had questions about. She has also continued to keep in an touch and check up on Us periodically. She Is a wonderful person who loves what she does!Angela Meath, Posted 10/27/2015
Sue was fantastic! I would highly recommend her to any family looking for a Doula in the Minneapolis/Metro area! We were unsure originally on if we wanted to hire a doula, but upon interviewing 3 people we instantly knew she was a great match for my husband and I. She uses fact based data to explain things and answer questions, is always quick to respond (day or night), and is so caring! She goes above and beyond!
Sue met with us 2 times before the birth of our baby, was there for the delivery, and also came 2 times after we were home to check on us. She always answered all our questions and concerns throughout the entire process and helped us know what to expect. She continues to check in on us even 2 months later and wants us to know she is always a text or phone call away.
Sue remained calm and kept us calm the entire time, even through our 5 week early and super quick labor/delivery. She had all kinds of tools and "tricks" to help comfort me. We had even practiced and talked about them at our meeting before the birth so we were prepared. She helped set the tone in our room so we could be as comfortable as can be. She encouraged my husband and Mom while we were in the delivery room and knew exactly what we needed and wanted because she had taken the time to get to know us at our early meetings.
I would encourage all parents to hire a doula (especially Sue) and tell you it was one of the best decisions we made!!! You can tell instantly Sue loves her job and cares about her families she works with. She is so knowledgeable and caring!
Sue, thank you so much for being there for us through the most wonderful day of our lives!Kelly and Chris Konechne,
We are so blessed to have you be part our birth experience! Im so glad you were in town and able to make it. What a day! I can't say enough good things about our experience- and a huge part was because of you!Kelly,
