“We want to thank you so much for your care and affection! Your presence and support throughout the process made all the difference. We went from a space of uncertainty and doubt to feeling confident to decide and trust our decisions in this transition to parenthood. The postpartum massage was the icing on the cake.”

“Embracing a beautiful birth was possible by nurturing my inner connection, gaining evidence-based knowledge, and understanding the profound physiology of labor – a transformative journey I’ll forever cherish.”

Keit Karemäe

“We had a beautiful connection with Susana from the first day we met her and the sessions we had together before the birth helped us to put into perspective what we really wanted not only for ourselves, but also what we wanted to offer our son in terms of experience in and after birth. And the bonus of having beautiful photos of this incredible and intense journey of being a mother is just priceless! We are
eternally grateful to you.”
