I’m Gillian & I live in Courtown, Co Wexford with my husband & our 3 year old son.
I’m a Birth & Postpartum Doula covering counties Wexford & Wicklow.
When our son was born, I became very interested in postpartum & parental support.
Living in a village with no family support near by made me look at the support that could be available, as there weren’t any in my area, at the time. I decided to change my direction in life & retrain.
In 2016 I attended my training workshops as a Babywearing Consultant & a Postpartum Doula.
And in 2018 I attended my training workshop as a Birth Doula.
I completed my babywearing consultancy training in 2017 & I am working towards both of my doula certifications.
I joined DoulaCare In June 2017 & I haven’t looked back since! I love being part of such an awesome team of women, who’s experience & knowledge is such a huge asset to us as doulas & to all of our clients.
When not helping families, I volunteer with Babywearing Ireland as co-librarian at the Wexford Sling Library.
I am a Friends of Breastfeeding “Breastfeeding Buddy” & run my local Friends of Breast Feeding Mum to Mum support group.
I also love cloth nappies & support Cloth Nappy Library Ireland when I can.
