S. Hermanson Meister: Susanna taught me to work muscles I never even knew I had, and I
credit her entirely for my speedy deliveries (18 minutes of pushing
with my first child, and just over 20 minutes with my second, who
weighed nearly ten pounds!). Susanna always sensed how much of a
workout I could handle (towards the end, not much), and she was
exceedingly good-natured about my nearly-two-year-old "exercising"
with us. It was no surprise to me when my daughter named her favorite
doll Baby Susanna.
