Testimonial for Suzi Livingstone

Of my 4 very different birth experiences, #4 was hands down the best in large part thanks to the wonderful support of my doula, Suzi. My 3rd baby was a very hard delivery physically and emotionally so I really wanted to make sure delivery #4 was different.On top of that, for this 4th baby, I was in a new place, with an unfamiliar medical system and wasn't sure what to expect from the hospital I had chosen.


The support Suzi provided both leading up to and during labor was invaluable; she took what could have been a very difficult labor experience, and turned it into something empowering and beautiful. Before labor, she provided emotional support as together we talked through my expectations and fears about labor. During labor she deftly read the situation to determine what was most helpful - verbal coaching, physical support, or running interference with the doctors and nurses so that I could focus on labor.


I experienced tearing with all 4 of my babies, but with the 4th it was the least severe. And I attribute that entirely to Suzi's ability to coach me through some breathing as the baby was crowning.


Suzi's praise of my achievement and love for my little girl and me post-birth are sweet sweet memories that I will cherish forever.
I would highly recommend Suzi's birth support services to any one!
