Testimonial for Sue Chargo, ICBD, ICCE, (ICEA) Doula, Educator, Lactation Counselor, Doula Trainer

This was our second time using Sue as our doula - we can't recommend her enough!

We first hired Sue in 2016 for our first birth - my husband and I loved her as soon as we met her and were excited to work with her. Though we had wished for a natural birth, we had to schedule a c-section, but thankfully Sue was still able to support us. She attended our external version appointment to attempt to flip our breech baby (which was unsuccessful), and then the OB allowed her to be in the operating room during my surgery. Her calming presence was invaluable. 

We knew we wanted to work with her again for our next pregnancy, and when we informed her that we would be having a VBAC at home with a midwife, she was excited for us and ready to help. Her encouragement and excitement helped us stay positive and hopeful for a healing, natural birth.

Almost four years after the birth of our first daughter, our second girl was born at home with the help of our incredible birth team.

When I called Sue to tell her that labor was progressing, she got to me as quickly as possible and jumped right in to help. She was right there encouraging me, holding me, helping me breathe through contractions, and squeezing my hips to help ease the pain.

There's no doubt that she was a big part of me being able to achieve my dream home birth, and I will forever be grateful.

Sue also makes a detailed log of the birth, keeping track of the progression and times, as well as details about the environment and who was present. Having all of that information postpartum is incredible, especially since most of the details fade from your memory quickly.

Sue keeps in contact regularly after birth - she checks in frequently and is always available to answer questions. She's a wonderful wealth of knowledge and experience!

We're so thankful for Sue - she's an incredible doula, and you won't regret having her by your side!
