When we found out we were expecting it was very important to me to find a doula to support my husband and I throughout the birthing process. I knew that I wanted to try to have an unmedicated birth and as first time parents we were going into the whole situation blind. We are so thankful that we found Sue, she was so wonderful to work with. She talked to us about what to expect and made us feel comfortable and confident in our choices. Any question you might have, she has the answer! With her wealth of experience and knowledge I know she played a big role in helping my husband to better understand the process and what to expect. Talking about the experience afterwards, neither my husband nor I know what we would have done without her! When we asked Sue to come to the hospital she helped me walk the halls and cope with contractions while my husband was able to squeeze in a nap. Throughout my labor she reminded my husband to eat and take breaks, helped me in and out of the birthing tub, reminded me to drink water, and about a million other things. She could not have been more helpful and she was such a reassuring voice to have by my side during the birthing process. While taking care of the both of us, she still managed to snag some of THE most amazing photos of our daughter being born. We will cherish them forever. After I gave birth Sue was always available for any questions that I had. She is quick to respond and has such a wealth of knowledge when it comes to newborns and breastfeeding. I am so thankful for everything that Sue did for our family during such an important time in our lives. We have already decided we will be hiring Sue again with our next pregnancy! We love Sue and will recommend her to any of our expectant friends and family.
As a first time mom, I was very scared of child birth. Sue helped me remain calm throughout my pregnancy. Whenever something unexpected would pop up, I could contact her and she would ease my mind. During my labor, Sue was there to talk me through contractions and make me feel at ease with the decisions that I was making. She is very knowledgeable and has a lot of experience with all types of births. She genuinely wants each mom to feel strong and empowered with the decisions that they are making. If I have any other babies we will definitely work with her again!
We will forever be grateful that we hired Sue to be our doula and be apart of our birth team. She exceeded our expectations months leading up to the birth of our daughter and the months after. We appreciated her openness of helping us build our birth plan that we felt comfortable with. She was there for us when our birth plan didn’t go as planned and helped us feel comfortable during this transition . She was a constant support when we had questions or concerns and always addressed every situation in a professional and knowledgeable manner.
We would highly recommend Sue to anyone looking for support before, during and after welcoming their little one. She is beyond amazing!
My relationship with Sue began when I was given the advice to find a post partum doula before our son Matthew was born. It was the best thing that could have happened for both of us! I was a little hesitant at first, thinking about inviting a complete stranger into our house, but after one conversation with her, I knew she was the one. We had an instant connection on the phone and I immediately felt relieved. She was warm, kind, and with her cheery demeanor, I knew she was our gal. Sue is so knowledgeable in her field and you can definitely tell she loves what she does. Matthew ended up coming earlier than we thought and she was very flexible with changing the dates of our visits. Then, when we met in person, the way she handled and talked with Matthew put me at ease. I knew we were well taken care and with her assistance, I was able to focus on my own self care. By the time we had our last visit, the conversation, chemistry and the way she was with Matthew made me think of her as more than our doula, she was now a friend. I was very sad to know our time with her was up, but knew this wasn't the end of our relationship. She still checks in on us from time to time and I LOVE that I know she's always a text or phone call away if we need it. We are so lucky to have met her and I know that if we get blessed with more children, she'll be one of the first people we call. We love you Sue and thank you soooooo much for all the help you gave our family!
