Childhood Vaccine Safety and Optimization


Vaccinating your child can be one of the most confusing and difficult decisions parents have to make. What is best for you, your baby, your family? Aside from all the media debates, what happens at your child's well visits is solely your responsibility. You must advocate for the health and wellness of your own child. As a postpartum professional it is my responsibility to advocate for your family as well. I do so by sharing my knowledge, education, and experiences on this very important topic.


As a Positive Postpartum client who is interested in this topic I will empower you by giving you the tools to make educated decisions. It's not about being pro- or anti-vaccine. It's about being pro-information and pro-choice. It is every parent’s right to choose whether to vaccinate themselves and their children or not. Either decision carries a responsibility to be informed around how to minimize risks of injury from the vaccine or the disease.



There are choices in both vaccination and non-vaccination where you can minimize health and injury risks associated with your decision. I share resources, checklists and evidence-based, balanced information on vaccinations. I speak with proactive parents on topics such as IMMUNOLOGY, CHILDHOOD VACCINATED DISEASES, RISKS & BENEFITS, PROS & CONS, OPTIONS, AND SOLUTIONS. These are very important to consider before abiding by the Center for Disease Control recommended schedule.

RESOURCES THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE:

  • BEFORE VACCINATIONS CHECKLIST

  • RIGHT BEFORE VACCINATIONS CHECKLIST

  • AFTER VACCINATIONS CHECKLIST

  • VACCINE INGREDIENTS

  • EXPERT RESOURCES FROM IMMUNOLOGISTS, PEDIATRICIANS, SCIENTISTS

  • GOVERNMENT WEBSITES AND INFORMATION

  • RESOURCE BY VACCINE TYPE

  • TYPES OF VACCINES

  • HOW IS THE DISEASE SPREAD?

  • WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?

  • WHAT ARE THE COMPLICATIONS?

  • NATIONAL VACCINE INFORMATION CENTER

  • AND MUCH MORE!

Most people vaccinate out of fear. People who don't vaccinate or do a delayed schedule, do so out of knowledge.



My mission as a postpartum professional is to increase health and comfort as you grow into parenthood, minimizing stress and maximizing joy. This includes discussing nitty-gritty topics like vaccination by advocating for the family's health and development. I think keeping this information to myself is being selfish and not serving the community to my fullest capacity. I feel called to inform parents and help them lead responsible decisions on vaccination. The health of our children and our families depends on me sharing and opening up my services around this very important topic! I don't offer medical advice, I offer education, support, and resources around this very important topic. Read more about my journey on joining the Childhood Vaccine Safety committee, partnering with a local naturopath and learn my background story on why I advocate for vaccine safety here (from a previous blog post).


BE WILLING, BE COURAGEOUS, BE INFORMED, BE RESPONSIBLE, BE EMPOWERED, AND BE WELL

 "I cannot encapsulate a better experience than having Suzanna as our doula...She was not only incredible support during postpartum but we also consider her a friend. She provided us incredible support with such a calm, empowering demeanor. She is also such an incredible resource and wealth of knowledge. We couldn't have made it the last three months without her, and every time she was away, we missed her (and still do)! If you are looking for postpartum support or a night nurse, Suzanna truly is a great person to have and we are so grateful to have experienced sharing post birth with her." -NW 2020

"Suzanna helped me through the beginning of a new phase of motherhood as a stay-at-home mommy of two. She coached me, helped me create and track goals to keep my brain focused, and provided an outlet for much-needed adult interaction in those first few months while everything was overwhelming and new. She was patient and kind, she listened to my opinions and concerns, and made sure that my mental health was a priority when I didn’t have the brain space to spend on it.

Suzanna is incredibly knowledgeable about pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, postpartum, and childcare; which was so helpful when I was exhausted, struggling with the changes my body had just gone through and had two little ones to look after on top of it all. It was life-giving having someone to care specifically for me and my mental health in this transitional time. It helped me become the best mom I could be." -2018

“We cannot even begin to express our sincere gratitude for Suzanna and her expertise. As first time parents (and first time mom of a now almost 7 month old!), my husband and I were unfamiliar with the role of postpartum doulas. She introduced us to incredible care centered on the recovering mom and needs of the brand new infant. Our daughter arrived a bit early, and was less than 5 lbs when we brought her home; she required a “triple feeding schedule” that resulted in almost 90 minutes of various forms of feeding followed by 30 minutes of rest...and repeat!  Needless to say, and despite so much love and support from our families, we were exhausted. Suzanna was truly a light in the haze of sleeplessness and new-parent uncertainty. Her unassuming and warm presence, calming words, as well as evidence-based, postpartum/breastfeeding knowledge were unparalleled. She skillfully guided us all through the early weeks of parenthood (and with COVID looming). We recommend her services to all!” -2020
