As first-time parents, we were extremely nervous with the birth of our son. In our first meeting with Suyin, she thoughtfully asked us about our concerns and worries and upon answering that we lacked confidence in being parents, Suyin confidently said “there’s nothing to worry about because you have me.” That statement could not have been more accurate. From answering questions prenatal, to being our pillar of support post partum, we were blessed to have Suyin as our doula. Not only is she knowledgeable, but she is patient, kind, and caring. Her guidance was always tailored towards our needs and how we wanted to raise our child and when times got tough, her comforting words and smile carried us forward. We learned how to properly breastfeed, bathe, swaddle, change, monitor, and engage with our child. Twelve weeks later, mommy and daddy are more confident parents, and little Nicholas is healthy and active as ever. Thank you Suyin for being nothing short of amazing. N.B. Dads, don’t feel bad about eating some of those homemade lactation cookies (yes, Suyin is a baker as well). Not only do they work (for the mommies), but they are delicious 😊
Suyin for postpartum doula!!!
We were extremely anxious about bringing baby #2 home with a 3.5 year old. We asked Suyin to come help us with the first couple nights to help us get settled at home with a newborn again. With my milk not in yet and a baby that wanted to be held throughout the night, Suyin was exactly what we needed!!! She brought baby to me when it was time to feed and helped with his latch and attended to anything I may have needed. After every feed, she would take baby and sooth him and I could go back to sleep and get adequate rest for the next day. She also helped guide me to establish my supply which was a concern after our first baby. She was amazing and we’re so glad we had her help! Suyin is also extremely patient and willing to share her knowledge.
Suyin is MAGIC!!!
Suyin has been an integral part of our baby’s well being from the very beginning. She worked with us during pregnancy to birth to the newborn days and now sleep training support for my toddler. J was always a great napper and sleeper, but when he was about 2 and a half, he suddenly became independent, demanding and stubborn. He was suddenly refusing to go down and refusing to let us leave his room. We were held hostages in his room until he decided that it was time for us to leave. We tried leaving when we said we would and every time he would have a major meltdown. It was frustrating and tiring for both of us. One night, we decided to let him cry it out, but he ended up crying so hysterically that he climbed and fell out of his crib. Head first. We were beyond devastated. That is when we reached out to Suyin, desperate for help. First, she soothed our anxieties and then asked for J’s schedule, habits, emotions, everything- full picture! She then made her suggestions. To be honest, I was skeptical, I was thinking there’s no way her strategies would work, but because we were desperate, we stuck to it and tried what she suggested. Magically, within 3 minutes, J understood and calmed down and told us “bye bye Mommy Daddy.” Everyday since has been just as peaceful and calm. J is able to calm down and go to sleep by himself, knowing that Mommy and Daddy are watching and waiting for him. Suyin is a true miracle worker! She has a true understanding of baby/toddler’s every need and desire! Her calm manner, wealth of knowledge and gentle approach is every parent and baby’s dream!
