Client Testimonials for Susannah Holub

From the beginning of our interaction with Susannah she was very open and also respectful and curious about us and our needs. She was invested in the whole process without being overbearing, knowledgeable without being cold or clinical. We really couldn't ask for a better doula for our whole experience of having a first kid. I never thought I would have a doula or have any feeling of attachment to a doula once we decided we were going to get one, but now I think of Susannah like an aunt to our little baby!

Highly recommend,

Let me start by mentioning how exceptional Susannah was from the start to the end! She came through for me at a time when I was feeling desperate about many issues as I was entering the last trimester of my pregnancy and the delivery. Every time I had a concern she was super attentive to it. More important than having the right answer right away for me and my husband was the fact that she was there when we needed her. As for the delivery she was really good at finding that perfect balance between being a trained professional and friendly and approachable person. I can’t finish this review without mentioning the wonderful massages I received during labor from her! I will be forever indebted to her! I am so happy our paths crossed and I cannot recommend her more! I will forever keep the sweetest card she wrote for my baby!

We decided pretty late in the game to hire a doula and lucked out with Susannah. She was very supportive in the weeks leading up to the birth - answering questions, strategizing the birth plan, and researching resources when necessary. When I went into labor, she was a calm and friendly presence, and when it came time for the actual birth of our daughter, she was right there rooting me on. I'm grateful we found her and wish her lots of luck on her on journey as a doula.
