Midwife & Wellness LLC
Midwifery Services for the Susquehanna River Valley
Serving Harrisburg, York, Lancaster and Rural Central PA
SPRING 2023 Update: We still have openings for due dates in August 2023 through the end of the year. We are not attending births in May & June 2023 as the midwife is on maternity leave and her assistant will be covering all appointments (except consultations) during that time.
All in-person consultations will be scheduled for July when the midwife returns. Please do not wait to reach out and get on the schedule as limited consultation time will be available and is filling up.
Please read the information on the consultation page carefully as it includes a lot of details that will minimize your questions during the consultation.

Susanah began her journey into midwifery in 2012 after the difficult birth of her fifth child. She started as labor support to the families of her small town in Costa Rica. In 2014, after returning to the United States, she gave birth to her sixth child and then began attending births again, part-time. Since 2016 she has served as a full-time Birth and Postpartum Doula, Lactation Counselor, and Childbirth and Breastfeeding educator in the South Central Pennsylvania region. Susanah has spent her time supporting her clients in their birth and life choices while doing independent studies towards her goal of becoming a practicing midwife. In Spring 2019 she began her midwifery apprenticeship and is now working towards certification as a midwife. In her free time she enjoys gardening and hiking with her kids, husband, and dog; attending her community yoga program, and making a mess in her kitchen. Susanah completed her apprenticeship with me in Summer 2021 but remains in the South Central PA/York area and accepts homebirth clients and serves as a back-up midwife and associate/referral.
