I cannot begin to describe the value of Susan's friendship, expertise, and unwavering support. From my problems conceiving and my uneventful pregnancy, through my VBAC turned unexpected last minute elective Cesarean, she was full of advice, compassion and evidence based knowledge about birth. When I had to transfer care because of my need for a surgical birth, her continuity of care never faltered. She went above and beyond, and was there for my Cesarean to laugh with me, comfort me, and share in the joy of my new arrival. Even in the Midwife model of care it is difficult to find someone who truly listens. I believe her years of experience as a doula makes her extra lovey toward her mamas and babies. I can wholeheartedly recommend her. She is not only an excellent midwife but has been a great friend.
