South Wales Doula UK
Sue Gibson - Birthing and Post Natal Doula
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.
Home visits allow me to get to know you and build an understanding of your needs. I am happy to travel up to an hour to you.
I will be on call from 38 weeks until the birth. I will be there as soon as I can to provide you with support and love during the labour
