About Laurie Suggs

My Training

My desire for all mothers is to feel they are an active part of the amazing journey of giving birth. Women are empowered as they are able to understand what is happening throughout the process and are supported in the choices they make.

Being very uninformed at my first birth I was left feeling like it was something that just “happened” to me. I felt like the doctor delivered my baby rather than me giving birth to her. During subsequent pregnancies I educated myself about birth and realized how much more rewarding it could be when I had choices based on the knowledge I had gained.


I have had six unique births of my own and have learned a lot over the years as I have raised my children.  I spent many years homeschooling and still love spending time with them.  I also enjoy playing the piano, sewing, and cooking, and walking along the Sacramento River near my home.

So that's me, but what about you? You're planning to bring a new life into this world and are looking for someone with experience and knowledge to be by your side, to remind you of the innate strength you have, and to encourage you every step of the way.
