Your baby. Your decisions.
Our 100% support.
The birth of your child is a memory you’ll carry with you throughout your entire life. At Susquehanna Doulas we’re committed to supporting you every step of the way, helping you create birth memories you’ll cherish always.
Susquehanna Doulas provides you with labor doulas who are both professionally trained and unfailingly supportive. Whether you are seeking someone to hold your hand and cheer you on, a coach for your partner, or someone to help you understand what’s happening, we make our knowledge and experience available so you can feel confident and prepared.
We fully support all types of births, and all types of families. Births with epidurals, with nitrous oxide, with no pain medication.
