I didn't opt for a doula for the birth of my first baby, and after using Sue with my second, my experience was completely different! I was able to have a natural birth with her continued support, encouragement and knowledge. It can't say how much I valued her calming presence overall, but especially during the transition phase. My husband also was so thankful to have her there! We would definitely recommend her and would use her in the future!
Sue was great. She gave us alot of helpful info and tips. She is very knowledgeable and used her skills to help make labor and delivery more comfortable. Sue gave me her one on one attention at the hospital during the delivery and I was so thankful to have her there. She really helped me stay calm and focused. I liked how she took pictures for us and also wrote up the details of the delivery and birth for us to remember. I really liked how she stayed for an hour after the delivery to make sure we got breast feeding established and answered any questions we had. Sue has been a Doula for many years and had alot of experience. I would recommend her to my close friends and family.
I highly recommend Sue! This is my second birth and second time using a doula. Sue was warm, knowledgable, flexible, and she felt like an old friend as soon as we met her. I love that she has three older children which gave her a lot of perspective and personal experience. I never felt judged when my natural birth plans went out the window and I decided to use an epidural. She was always there with her "Mary Poppins" bag whenever I needed somethig during labor. I would recommend Sue to any of my friends and know that Sue and I will be in touch for many years to come!!
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!!
