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

I worked with Sue throughout my first pregnancy. She was incredibly helpful and I can't recommend her services enough! I found her online after deciding that I wanted the support of a doula for my first experience with labor/delivery. She had a great rating, ample experience, and lived close by. Additionally, I liked that she had the added lactation knowledge. My husband and I had a great first Zoom with her and immediately liked her friendly, open demeanor as well as her clear expertise. We signed a contract with her and met an additional time virtually prior to having her come to our house in the weeks leading up to my due date. Sue was incredibly helpful in assisting us with our birth plan. She laid out all our options and only offered opinions if we asked. She made it clear that she was open to everything from a natural childbirth to a fully medicated one. I never once felt pressured to do anything that I didn't want to do-- if anything, she helped answer questions I might have on all the options and presented the information in an unbiased manner. She brought her "tool bag" to our house and walked us through what labor might look like for us. After meeting with her both my husband and I felt more mentally, emotionally, and physically prepared for our upcoming day. When the real event happened, Sue was an incredible help at the hospital. She supported my husband through his nerves and gave him helpful tasks to accomplish. She was a major moral support to me and a cheerleader through the pushing process. I appreciated how she was able to take charge without ever stepping on any of the hospital staff (nurses and doctors) toes. She was very respectful of their time and space but clearly had my best interests at heart. After we got home from the hospital we had a great check in with her and I loved how she had documented our entire birth process and brought all the (now very foggy) details to us typed up. All in all, our experience was fantastic!
