Preparation and Support

birth, breastfeeding & baby

Whether you're a first-time mama or adding another child to your family, you are on a quest:   a healthy pregnancy and the very best start for your little one.

This time in life holds such incredible potential for your child as it sets the foundation for all subsequent development - just like the one upon which your home a built. You want a sturdy foundation for your child so they can reach their full potential. A supported pregnancy, the best birth possible, success with breastfeeding, and a smoother transition to new family life - these are the components which affect the well-being of both you and your baby.


I hope for you to feel inspired and empowered. Having the right information, tools, skills, & understanding means you can move forward into your parenting role with confidence.

I believe in you. This special time in your life presents a rare opportunity and I know you can have a great start with your sweet baby!


You're pregnant ~ Congratulations!

Are you wondering ~

  • How can I feel confident going into my birth experience?

  • What can I do to have the healthiest & safest birth for my baby?

  • What do I need know to succeed at breastfeeding?

  • How can my partner feel engaged and prepared?

  • How do I have the best start for my family?

Pregnancy initiates an intense and profound period of transformation in your life. You hold the keys to a positive experience for you and your baby through preparation and education. Knowledge is power. A lack of knowing and a lack of preparation leaves you and your baby vulnerable. Being educated and prepared gives you the opportunity to make decisions that support your goals. Gaining a skill set and understanding the language of birth and breastfeeding gives you confidence and enables you to take actions that benefit your family for a lifetime.

All my classes are taking place LIVE online during the Coronavirus outbreak

From Susan's classes, Matt and I felt very prepared for a natural birth. A telling moment was the very day I was in labor, when we turned to each other and realized that we felt really calm about what was about to happen. We felt very prepared physically, and very educated, so that our birth experience was one of calmness and sweet excitement for our new little one...We were so fortunate to have ended up in Susan's Bradley® course, and can't image such a positive birth experience without the depth of education.

~ Ananda, Mama to Jane Elizabeth

We had such an amazing time working with you and learning the ropes of the Bradley Method®. It was so helpful to focus on nutrition during pregnancy, and to plan for labor and delivery. By the time we reached labor, we both felt like we were armed with the necessary information to handle that experience, communicate with the medical team and our doula, and navigate labor towards a natural birth. You were instrumental in all of this - your very detailed and interactive method of teaching was awesome! We just want to say thanks for everything!
