After attending her first birth Susan Harvey knew that Obstetrics was going to be a big part of her life. She began her medical career as a Physician Assistant, and worked both in Denver and for a Native Alaskan Corporation in Kodiak. She returned to medical school in the 80’s and finished her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Washington. She has been Board Certified since 1992. For over 20 years her obstetrical practice has been a mix of low risk patients desiring unmedicated “natural” deliveries and higher risk patients, such as patients with advanced maternal age, those desiring VBAC, and twins. She also has a Gynecological office and surgical practice, offering contraceptive options such as IUD’s, alternatives for heavy menstrual bleeding like Novasure Endometrial Ablation. and treatment of abnormal pap smears. She does both her surgery and deliveries at Swedish Medical Center First Hill.
