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

The single best decision we made in preparing for the birth of our first daughter, was to hire Sue.  After interviewing several doulas, it was clear that Sue was the doula for us.  Her years of experience (nearly 400 births!), focus on the entire family and confident deameanor were the perfect fit for our family.  We particularly loved that Sue prioritized my husband and made sure the labor and delivery were still very much about the two of us going through this experience together, with Sue there for additional support. 

We loved that Sue met with us prior to the delivery as well!  She created our birth preferences, which was a huge stress reliever for us.  She even printed copies and brought them to the hospital for us to share with the staff.  She was also a phenomenal resource in talking through different aspects of labor, such as what atmosphere we would want in the delivery room (electric candles, low lighting, calm music), what support tools she could provide (wait until you see her Mary Poppins bag of tricks and treats!) and what to pack in our hospital bag.  My ultimate goal was to have an unmedicated delivery and Sue gave me the confidence and affirmations I needed to achieve that goal!  We now have a beautiful baby girl and my labor and delivery was ideal becuase of Sue!  She stayed with us after the birth to ensure I had a successful first breastfeeding session with my little one as well.

In the weeks following, she visited our family and continues to check in with us to provide support with any concerns we may have.  This has been tremendously helpful especially since my milk didn't come in initially, so Sue's lactation conselor background helped us get through our initial concerns.  If you are considering a doula, we cannot recommend Sue enough.  She truly feels like part of our family and we will be forever grateful that she was part of our daughter's birth!
