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

I cannot say enough wonderful things about having Sue as a doula!  For context, I was trying for a VBAC with my second child and this was my first time having a doula (I did not use a doula for my first).  Sue gave me the confidence and encouragement to believe that I could have a positive birth experience after undergoing an unplanned c-section with my first.  My husband and I both immediately connected with Sue and she brought a calming, reassuring presence to our preparation for the birth, birth experience and post-partum.  

During the birth, Sue was a critical part of my support team and worked seamlessly and professionally with the medical staff at the hospital where I delivered.  She guided me through each stage of labor and anticipated my needs to help me with pain management based on what I liked.  My labor was a bit of a marathon and Sue gave me the energy, reassurance and confidence to keep going.  During late stage of labor, my baby's heart rate would decline during contractions and Sue worked with the nurses to help me find the best positions that kept my baby's heart rate up during contractions.  Ultimately, I was able to have a VBAC and both my husband and I feel that if Sue hadn't been there, I very likely wouldn't have had a successful VBAC.  

We cannot recommend Sue enough to be apart of your birth experience!
