We hired Sue Chargo for our doula. This was our first child and we did not know what was going to happen for our first child so it was very helpful being able to ask her questions about all the variables that could happen. Also, when the doctor was recommending some things, I got to talk it out with Sue to figure out if that was the best solution for myself and my husband. She is very orgainzed, and great with communictation. Everything in the birth went very smoothly and along the whole way I knew exactly what was happening and fully educated on all of my options during birth. Sue will teach you all these options so when it comes time to making a decision you know how to answer in the moment. I would highly recommend Sue to help you during the process of your birth. She will help write your birth plan, help with your hospital packing list for mother, father, snacks, baby. She also offers a virtual education course. Andrew + Lebrisia Iversen
Our experience with Sue was absolutely amazing. We felt comfortable and supported by her from our very first meeting, and this continued throughout my pregnancy. She is incredibly knowledgable and her approach is very warm and non-judgmental. Sue was such a critical support for us after going into labor a month earlier than expected, and she was with us every step of the way. Her support and guidance during my delivery was a substantial factor to having an overall positive labor experience. She has been an ongoing support post-delivery, and is always there to answer any questions, give resources, and/or to continue to offer ongoing support. We are so grateful to have found Sue and to have been able to utilize her during my pregnancy, and any expecting woman/family would be lucky to work with her!
We were very thankful to have Sue as our doula for the birth of our first child. She was extremely helpful as we prepared for our birth with her broad background, knowledge and quick communication. She thoroughly answered all our questions about prenatal care, how to prepare for our birth experience and recommendations as we got ready for the arrival of our baby. It was reassuring to know we had Sue as a resource. During our visits Sue was professional, kind and helpful. During the birth she supported both of us as we navigated unexpected situations - from suggestions on labor positions to encouraging words. We appreciated all she did!

Before this process began, I had no clue what a Doula was. Looking back, I cannot imagine what it would've been like to bring our daughter into the world without Sue! We could not have asked for a better experience as she was incredibily knowledgable and informative throughout the entire process. We had multiple visits to make sure we were on the same page before the birth and on the day of, she was there with us the entire time and made it so much more comfortable and fun. She was able to ask questions and identify things that we would not have thought of. She felt like family and we will absolutely be calling her up for our next baby!
