My husband and I took Susanna's childbirth class in preparation for the birth of our first child (a little boy, but we didn't know at the time). Susanna was warm, patient, and informative - everything you'd want from someone guiding you through the childbirth process. She prepared us for both the planned and unplanned aspects of childbirth, and empowered us to make the tough (but informed) decisions we inevitably needed to make during labor and delivery. I highly recommend Susanna's services to anyone looking for a calm, empathetic, warm presence as you prepare to welcome your child into the world. 


 I would definitely recommend Susanna's class to a friend (or a stranger). She's very knowledgeable and friendly - a great resource as you get ready for your big event.

 My husband and I took Susanna's Bradley Methods class. Susanna was such a huge asset to us in our birth experience -- she did not just teach us the common scenarios, medicines, interventions, birthing methods, etc., she prepared us mentally to tackle any situation, even those that we couldn't imagine happening. Our baby came 7 week early and we faced so many decisions and issues we could not fathom in our birth plan, but we were calm, cool, and confident throughout the experience because of Susanna's excellent training. 


 My partner and I attended Susanna's childbirth classes when I was pregnant with my first child and looking for a way to reduce my fear and prepare to give birth with as few medical interventions as possible. Susanna's knowledge of the science of the birthing process and pain management techniques, as well as her wisdom, are extensive. Her approach is warm, nurturing, thoughtful, and curious. She instilled in us the confidence to identify our goals and advocate for them. What has been evident throughout my time knowing Susanna is that she is constantly growing and learning, and that having a positive impact on both baby and maternal health is a passion of hers.

 I was looking for a more in-depth class than the standard fare, and knew I wanted to avoid interventions if possible. Susanna delivered that and so much more--I truly felt so well-prepared for my first childbirth experience, and I was able to deliver the way I wanted to. Even when things didn't go according to plan, I understood my options, how to communicate my needs and desires to my caregivers, and my husband was able to coach me through it all. I truly can't describe how strongly I recommend Susanna's classes, and her balance of knowledge, caring, empowerment, and common sense. She never pushed me in any direction, but made sure I was well-prepared to make decisions with which I would be comfortable.

 Susanna's childbirth and parenting classes went above and beyond! The material that she presented was incredibly comprehensive. It spanned everything from self-care during pregnancy, the physical and psychological changes that take place during gestation, preparation for labor and childbirth, and postpartum care. I found this information to be incredibly valuable and it provided me with a lot of peace of mind. As expectant parents there is so much mis-information out there, so it was amazing to have guidance in these areas. Susanna is incredibly down-to-earth and knowledgable as an instructor. And the course is interactive with discussion, activities, and videos. I also appreciated the focus of the partner's role and how he/she can provide support during every step of the journey. With guidance from the course I felt fully prepared to have a natural childbirth (as prepared as anyone can be!)

 Susanna - We are extremely grateful to you for the amazing, in-depth and personalized course. It helped us get through some tough moments! I lost count of how many times we discussed your tips and course during those 2 crucial days at the hospital. Thank you, Susanna.

 Susanna, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for guiding us through. We used so many tools that you taught us. Having the knowledge that we gained I think really helped us get through the long haul that it was.

 Looking back, we can't imagine how things could have gone this well without all the help and wisdom and practice from our Bradley class.
