As part of her role, Sue accompanies women in labour in an ambulance to the nearest hospital, located 100km away, and has had to deliver babies on more than one occasion in the ambulance.

"I love being a part of these parents’ journeys. You see them before they have the bubby, then they have the bubby and then they’re all nervous and happy. Then they’ve got these toddlers and you see these children grow into beautiful little things. Often a child will say to me in the street, “Hello, nurse Sue! Hello, how are you going?” and it’s just wonderful."
