Linda O'Flaherty

Post Partum Doula.

I am a Dona International trained Postpartum Doula, passionate in supporting mothers, fathers, siblings, extended families and new-borns to have the best possible experience in the precious early weeks. 

In the family constellation, each person matters.

I offer non-intrusive, gentle, practical and flexible support for the whole family, creating nurturing space for the dance of intimacy between mother and baby and helping to mitigate the overwhelm. 

I am a trained advocate, massage therapist, rebirther and reiki practitioner with a higher diploma in psychodynamic psychotherapy, focussed on the early mother/baby relationship.

In a busy world, with technology at our fingertips, it's a challenge to trust our instincts. In a supported postpartum cocoon we can discover the joy of listening to our babies and trusting ourselves to respond and be the best parents we can be. I lovingly offer that support and encouragement.

I have four daughters of my own and three grandchildren. Being with my daughters in the postpartum period was a magical gift for which I am eternally grateful.

When I’m not working I am a keen reader, writer and walker. I love to meet friends for coffee or a movie and enjoy dressmaking and handcrafting for fun.
