Hi! My name is Susie, and I would love to be your doula!
I have served as a doula in Manassas, Haymarket, Warrenton, Fairfax, Reston, Leesburg, Alexandria, and surrounding areas. I have supported first time moms to moms of 8+ kids! I've assisted moms who have had scheduled inductions, emergency inductions, VBACS, C-sections, breech births, preeclampsia, preemies, moms with complications, gestational diabetes and also mamas whose babies are now in Heaven...
I've also helped moms give birth at home, in birth centers, and in hospitals... water births, bed births, floor births... I've done moms who have unmedicated births, scheduled inductions, and also moms who happily inform me they will get epidurals.
NO MATTER WHAT kind of mom you are, what kind of birth you want... I want to help you write your OWN story. I love helping moms through the early stages of pregnancy all the way up to birth, lactation, and postnatal care. I am there to support you in all avenues of pregnancy and birth. I am there to be your advocate, your strength, and your guide. I LOVE what I do and I am passionate about all things birth/mama/baby.
Feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns. Let me know when your due date is, and I will let you know if I have availability to help you out!
