I am a Doula because I want to empower women to believe in themselves and their innate strength as women and as mothers.
Hello my name is Sue, I live in the lovely seaside town of Whitstable, Kent. I have four children, Hayley, Shelley, Sam and Molly. I also have seven grandchildren. I love spending time with my family and my home is always busy with lots of things going on.
Until recent years I worked in education as a student support manager within a secondary school. Working with students that needed that extra bit of support and understanding.
My training was with Birthbliss Academy,
with the wonderful Kicki Hansard.
