Ellen Hsu

We are laboring together!!

It's not all about my skills, it's because I'm in rhythm with you.

About Me

My Care Philosophy

“We are laboring together!” I always say, it’s your birth but I am laboring with you! I am a “you-centered” provider who focuses on you, not birth management. 

 

Through actively listening, I create a tailored plan for your needs. Through education, you can feel ease, trust, and confidence for your unique birth experience. 

 

How do I thrive? 

I am a life-long learner and I enjoy multitasking! I am constantly taking continuous education in order to provide the most evidence-based information and unique support to you. I provide a variety of birth and postpartum education and support. 

 

I often have OB providers, midwives, nurses, clients, and other professionals who recommend my services to others. With blessings, I have attended almost 400 births. 

I am a certified birth and postpartum doula as well as a Washington state certified medical and social services interpreter. I am a Swedish contracted doula as well as in the eastside health network with Evergreen and Overlake hospital.

Jonathan

Ellen blew my mind with her professionalism, knowledge and dedication toward her work. Her being there made our childbirth experience so much easier, made my life so much easier!

Ellen's presence was one of the primary reasons that I had such a positive experience. 

As someone who works in the obstetrics field delivering babies, I approached Ellen after watching her interact with many of my own patients. I think she strikes a perfect balance of labor support, emotional support, patient advocacy, and giving the medical team their space to do what they think is best as well.

Jacqueline

Being a mom herself, she cares a lot about moms and newborns and is very committed to the work that she’s doing.
