 “Suzanne has put together a wonderful training program coupling her professional experience and the organic need at end of life.  The certification program is so well rounded and taught me how to hold space not only the patient but their family as well.  As a result of this training, I can ensure the families I serve have the best end of life experience and care possible.  I highly recommend the Doulagivers End-of-Life Doula training; it brings back the holistic model of care for the end-of-life.”

Dawn Whelan, My Last Gift

“Thank you so much for the weekend, your training, and the spirited and open-hearted enthusiasm with which you embraced all of us these past few days. I feel like I’ve been blessed in meeting you, and now feel re-invigorated to dive back into what the universe seems to be calling me to do. I can’t thank you enough – and am looking forward to what’s next.”


“Last year while looking to update and refresh my symptom management skills, key word searches led me to discover and one of Suzanne’s Obrien’s publicized interviews on the internet. Having worked as a nurse for over 23 years and in the field as a Hospice RN for over a decade, I immediately realized that the information presented in her free Level 1 education was only possible to accumulate by having walked that walk. Caring for someone who is experiencing loss of function is a task there are very few resources for once the burden of care falls onto unsuspecting families and friends. The fast-paced high technologically driven health care systems of today leave many of the average patients unable to find their way. Programs like Doulagivers are stepping into this void to embrace the growing need for more compassionate care at end of life. I completed the Level 3 Doula Program and am happy to belong to this growing community of compassion.”

James Desiderati RN

“I have Doulagivers to turn to for support and guidance.  Suzanne provides professional and business advice, ongoing learning opportunities to stay current, develops new certification programs, sets high professional standards for Doulagivers to adhere that provides us with a reputable status in the communities we serve.  It connects us to other Doulagivers from all over the world to network with, learn from, seek advice from and comfort when the need arises.

I am blessed to be a Doulagiver and honoured to be a part of this life giving community.  Dreams can and do come true and I wish the same for you.”
