Hi, I am Suzy the Postpartum Doula.

I have been working as a postpartum doula since 2019.  I am a retired NYC fashion executive who has raised two successful adult children.  Jai is 29, she just started working for Google.  Alex is 25 and just accepted a position at Microsoft.  I have loved “almost” all of my childrearing experiences.

I moved to DC almost 3 yrs. ago just before the pandemic and initially, did a lot of volunteering for the HousingUp project tutoring the kids and also raising money for The Children’s Inn at NIH.   Recognizing that I like empowering women, and love babies, children, and dogs the idea of becoming a doula evolved.  It was a great decision as I look forward to going to work every day, caring for, educating, and helping my new parents and their newborns.  I am a good cook and enjoy preparing healthy meals for my clients.  In addition, I have been educating myself towards becoming an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).

Suzy speaks English and has working Spanish.
