I can't express in words how thankful I am that I was able to have such a wonderful midwife take care of me through my pregnancy, birth, and post-care. Susanna is exceptional at making one feel well taken care of. She is attentive, accessible, and hard-working.
When my wife was in her last semester of medical school we found out we were pregnant, only three months after our wedding. To us as doctors, safety and kindness during a birth are essential for all women. This led us to choose Susanna as our midwife.
Just want to put out there a recommendation for our wonderful homebirth midwife Susanna Napierala. Susanna was amazing for us on many levels. She has over 3 decades of experience helping moms deliver babies at home.
I would love to recommend most highly our wonderful homebirth midwife Susanna Napierala. Susanna has been an integral part of the births of both of our beautiful children.
We have learned so much from her vast amount of experience as a pioneer bringing waterbirths to the U.S. Our first child was supposed to be a homebirth, but our boy came just a bit too early. Susanna had prepared us well beforehand, getting to know us and allowing us to get to know her.
Susanna arrived and checked me and we were delighted to find that I was 9 cm dilated and it was almost time to push! She said to my mom "you're going to be here for the birth" my mom asked if I wanted her to stay and I said yes, I needed her. I got in the tub and the water was still pretty cold but not so bad considering it was July and it was heating up outside.
