      10 out of 10 would recommend Suzanne. Suzanne is more than a doula to us, she is family. She was there for us with our first born and then went out of her way to make sure she was there for us with our second (and thank goodness because I could not have done it without her support). There was a point where we both thought she may miss my sons birth because he was past due and her flight back to Seattle was quickly approaching. She went out of her way to make sure we had a backup plan. To quote “let’s make a backup plan that way we won’t need it”. And boy was she right, we did not need the backup plan once we had it.

      When you choose Suzanne as your doula, you aren’t just choosing someone to support you during your child’s birth. You are choosing someone who is there for you every step of the way and in every way possible. And if there is something she can’t help with, she guides you to who can. You are choosing someone who immediately feels like family, like a home away from home. Without her, I am not sure I would have made it through the birth of my second son. She helped me process his birth story and helped me see it from a different perspective. She reminded me how beautiful and strong I was and am through it all. For that, I will always be grateful.

      I feel blessed to have her in my life and a part of both of my sons births.
