Sue was our Doula for the birth of our second child. I knew I wanted my second birth to be different than my first and I wanted to be unmedicated. After I first met Sue, I knew that I wanted her to be part of our birth. Knowing I would have my husband and Sue there every step of the way through labor made me feel much more at ease this time around. The birth of our second child was a completely different experience in the best way possible. I wish I would have known of Sue for the birth of my first child. We would highly recommend Sue as a Doula to any expecting parents.

We loved having Sue as our doula. I didn’t have an epidural for birth and knew having a doula would be key. Sue ensured we had a good understanding of all the tools and techniques available during labor. At the birth center we consulted her whenever we had to make decisions, she helped with pain management and also moving labor along by trying different positions, and she took detailed notes of the labor. She also took pictures which are so special to have! She’s been a great resource during postpartum as well. It’s been so helpful to have someone we trust that we can text with questions as often as they come up. You’ll definitely feel taken care of with Sue as your doula!

The single best decision we made in preparing for the birth of our first daughter, was to hire Sue.  After interviewing several doulas, it was clear that Sue was the doula for us.  Her years of experience (nearly 400 births!), focus on the entire family and confident demeanor were the perfect fit for our family.  We particularly loved that Sue prioritized my husband and made sure the labor and delivery were still very much about the two of us going through this experience together, with Sue there for additional support.


We loved that Sue met with us prior to the delivery as well!  She created our birth preferences, which was a huge stress reliever for us.  She even printed copies and brought them to the hospital for us to share with the staff.  She was also a phenomenal resource in talking through different aspects of labor, such as what atmosphere we would want in the delivery room (electric candles, low lighting, calm music), what support tools she could provide (wait until you see her Mary Poppins bag of tricks and treats!) and what to pack in our hospital bag.  My ultimate goal was to have an unmedicated delivery and Sue gave me the confidence and affirmations I needed to achieve that goal!  We now have a beautiful baby girl and my labor and delivery was ideal because of Sue!  She stayed with us after the birth to ensure I had a successful first breastfeeding session with my little one as well.


In the weeks following, she visited our family and continues to check in with us to provide support with any concerns we may have.  This has been tremendously helpful especially since my milk didn't come in initially, so Sue's lactation counselor background helped us get through our initial concerns.  If you are considering a doula, we cannot recommend Sue enough.  She truly feels like part of our family and we will be forever grateful that she was part of our daughter's birth!





Sue was a great addition to our birth team. She stuck with us through a long, eventful labor, and her energy and positivity never waned! She brought great ideas to the table for the birth itself, and kept me (the non-birthing partner) fed and cared for. Sue handled so many details that we wouldn't have thought of, or have been able to manage well during the process, allowing us to be focused and present and joyful during what might have otherwise been a stressful experience. She has continued to keep in touch and be a warm presence in our lives since the birth of our sweet baby boy!
