- My name is Suzanne , I live in Swaffham Norfolk with my lovely husband. I am mother to two sons and a daughter who have now flown the nest, and I am also a grandmother.

I believe that becoming a parent is an amazing experience, a time to ponder on what new life means, and to learn to make decisions that honour you, and the life of your child. Traditionally seen as a rite of passage, and as such celebrated . In todays modern world of technology , it can be a confusing time, feeling that you have to do things to fit a system. As a caring Doula I enjoy supporting a new family to be, as they make plans to welcome their child. For me its all about mothers fathers and babies, and making the most of the magic of becoming new parents. I do what I can to safeguard your experience, spending time getting to know you, listening with both my ears, drawing on my education and experience to keep the power of parenthood safely in your hands.
