Birth and Post Partum Doula.
I am a DONA trained birth & postpartum doula - I support families of all kinds during pregnancy, childbirth and the postnatal period, mainly in the greater Dublin area.
I discovered my passion for pregnancy and everything birth related during my university years and I strongly believe that every woman and family deserves the best support and care during this exciting period of their lives. To me it means respect, trust and honesty, and I love providing a safe and warm environment for the families I work with.
I am also a psychologist and baby massage instructor, and I always look for new ways I can support families. I’ve worked at a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit supporting parents whose babies were born preterm, I work with kids on the autism spectrum, and I am currently studying Counselling and Psychotherapy as well.
Some of my special interests are home births, supporting first time parents, premature babies, trauma (childhood trauma, previous traumatic birth experiences, sexual abuse), and any kinds of "special needs”. I am quite hard to surprise and I don’t mind being thrown in at the deep end.
I like using relaxation techniques, music and dance during labour, but I am most interested in what you like and need, so I can be there for you the way you need me to. I bring my calming presence, listening skills, nurturing attitude and sense of humour – so you can just bring You
