Sue Gibson -  Birthing and Post Natal Doula

About Me

I’m Sue, also known as the WyeDoula. I'm trained as a Birthing and Postnatal Doula and live in South Wales with four grown up children. If you are reading this chances are you might be pregnant. If so, congratulations!

 

My fascination with childbirth started many years ago when a friend invited me to her home-birth. She had an active birth, delivered in an upright position and I found it awe inspiring!

 

Up until then I had been terrified of childbirth. I came away thinking: “I could have a go at that!” I went on to marry a year later, and have my children with confidence, embracing the active childbirth principles I’d learnt from my friend.

Whilst giving support to another friend in labour, the midwife suggested I should become a doula. I was delighted to discover such a job existed and thus began my journey of supporting women through pregnancy, birth and beyond. I trained with Nurturing Birth.

Having raised my family, including two step sons, I feel now is the perfect time to whole heartedly give my energy into supporting women through childbirth. I've supported several women on their birth  journeys, including two repeat bookings from a couple of families who asked me to be with them for their first babies birth.I've also provided online support remotely for mothers around the world.

Testimonials

Sue supported me through two long births. I couldn’t have done it without her. She was with me all the way, and gave me and my partner the most amazing support throughout. Having her alongside gave me calm, centred emotional, spiritual and physical support…she seemed to know exactly what I needed and when, and gave me great encouragement all the way through. She seemed to always understand how to help, without taking over..and her non medical help was just what we needed.  It was great to have her there to welcome my sons into the world!
