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,
Sue Chargo was our doula for the birth of our second child. I would highly recommend Sue! Sue is a wealth of knowledge and provided comfort both prior to the birth and during labor. She met with me and my husband several times prior to the actual birth and really took the time to get to know my family. She also made sure to understand my birth wishes and did so without judgment or pressure. We practiced different touches and laboring positions so when we were in the throws of labor, she already knew what I wanted. Sue’s presence during my labor and the birth had a huge impact and played a huge role in allowing me to have a drug-free, natural childbirth. She worked hand-in-hand with the nurses and midwife and successfully communicated our birth plan so my husband could solely focus on me and I could focus on having a baby! Sue has also stayed in contact after our baby girl’s birth making sure both baby and mama are adjusting and healing well! We couldn’t have asked for a better birth experience or a better doula – we feel honored and lucky that we had Sue by our side!Leslie and "J" Pietila,
