Birth Doula Profile - Suzanne Walker
Suzanne has had many years of experience in the delivery room and has attended hundreds of births. She has been a practicing neonatology PA-C since 1992, after graduating from the Yale PA program. She believes that birth is frequently seen as a “medical process”. Her philosophy is that when a mother feels safe and supported, she will be able to relax and let her body take over the natural process of birthing. She looks forward to creating a unique birthing plan for each client.
Suzanne has experience in infant development, surgical births, high risk pregnancies, premature labor and delivery as well as breastfeeding support. She is currently working on her DONA certification.
Suzanne is married with a son in college. In her free time, she enjoys creating art and mixed media, traveling, and spending time with her husband and their six rescue dogs.
