Suzy and Marge Mansfield own and operate the Seattle Home Midwifery Service and Childbirth Center, as well as being founders of Seattle Midwifery School many years ago. I chose them to be my midwives for my second baby and initially for my third (until I moved to Tacoma).
Suzy's humor, upbeat attitude, and caring style really won me over. She knows SO MUCH about birth and really likes being a midwife. I felt encouraged and supported, not scared of homebirth for myself like I expected to be.
I love Marge too but this is just a listing for Suzy. I recommend her to anyone for a well-supported pregnancy, highly knowledgeable birth attendant (she's been a midwife for something like 30 years!), and someone who is well-respected in doctor and birth circles all over the world.
