Susannah Rosenfield is a DONA-certified birth doula and Certified Breastfeeding Counselor. She joined the birth world upon realizing that doula work perfectly combines her interests in reproductive rights and storytelling. Through both interests, she has learned how to listen actively and honor personal narratives with the goal of providing comprehensive, centering support.
Susannah believes in a judgment-free approach to doula work focused on listening, affirming, comfort, and choice. Everyone deserves to birth with dignity and respect, and Susannah is dedicated to making that happen on your terms. During her time as a doula, Susannah has had the opportunity to take complimentary trainings, like the Spinning Babies method with Tammy Ryan and Comforting Touch with Yiska Obadia. She brings this knowledge with her into the birthing space while recognizing that you know your body and your baby best.
Originally from Maine, Susannah moved to Brooklyn after earning a B.A. Sociology and Anthropology from Kenyon College. In her free time, she enjoys meandering walks through Prospect Park, practicing yoga, FaceTiming with her nieces and nephews, and catching comedy shows around the city.
