Over the past 12 years, she has had the privilege of working with new families in the Greenville, SC, area. She supports them through pregnancy, labor, and birth, and leaves them with confidence in their ability to care for their newborn.
Through Care for Mom she has been providing childbirth education, labor doula services, and postpartum care for mother and baby to women and families in the Greenville, South Carolina area for the past nine years. She received her postpartum doula certification in 2003. She has since completed training to be a labor doula.
Susan also teaches a normal childbirth series, “Instinctive Birthing”. “Instinctive Birthing” is a comprehensive course on pregnancy, labor, birth and newborn care. It is a series of classes that teach women how to work with their bodies, preparing them physically, emotionally and spiritually for a normal childbirth. This course has been designed to give women the information they need to have the birth they desire whether at home, at a birth center, or at the hospital.
As a part of her postpartum work Susan facilitates the Upstate Postpartum Support Group. The support group meets on a monthly basis, and Susan is available by phone and email to any moms who are in need of support and education about perinatal mood disorders.
