Suzanne OSullivan

My approach is to make the unique experience of pregnancy and childbirth as enjoyable and relaxing as possible.

 I aim to put expectant parents at their ease and to explain each symptom and each step of the pregnancy clearly and simply. We organise frequent antenatal visits with the majority of care provided in rooms. In a typical pregnancy there will be around 14 visits with a scan at each visit, providing reassurance and confidence in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

 My vast experience in delivering babies safely for over 27 years has contributed to my expertise on the labour ward and to optimising the journey of labour and birth for my patients.

Patient Testimonials

Suzanne came highly recommended by other friends who had problem pregnancies. After a previous very traumatic birth I was really anxious and afraid. She put me and my husband at ease immediately. She explained everything along the way and gave me choices all the time. I had a lovely calm and safe birth and could not be happier. Thanks Suzanne!   May 2019

I had an extremely difficult pregnancy and Suzanne was outstanding. I feel she went above and beyond to get me and my baby through the pregnancy safely, would highly recommend her  May 2019

I have attended Suzanne for my 3 pregnancies, all of which were complicated. She was calm and reassuring at all times and explained everything to me in detail so I fully understood the plan of action. I was able to attend the clinic whenever I was worried and her team were friendly and helpful at all times. I really cannot recommend her highly enough after my pregnancies  October 2018

Excellent doctor. She delivered both my girls and I couldn’t speak highly enough of her both times. Excellent bedside manner, competent and informative. Very reassuring throughout both pregnancies. I Would have no hesitation in recommending to family or friends  April 2018
