Rachel Keena   

Birth Doula.

I am a DONA International Trained Birth Doula. I am currently in the process of Certification. I am also a Breastfeeding Counsellor and Certified Trageschule Babywearing Consultant. 

I have always wanted to support people through labour and birth, long before I had children and before I knew what a Doula was. When I discovered what a Birth Doula was I knew it was what I was made to do. With having 3 babies and being a stay at home mum it wasn't the right time to train as my babies were small and needed their mum around. So I did other training and supported parents in other ways that fit around them. 

Now my babies are grown enough to be comfortable without their mum so I trained with DONA in March '18 and can attend births and support parents through this wonderful event in their lives. 

I believe every person has the right to choose what is right for them and be fully supported to do so. I will always offer unconditional support to my clients. 
I have an abundance for experience supporting new parents through my work as a babywearing consultant and volunteering as a Breastfeeding Counsellor. I'm so happy to be able to provide support now through pregnancy and birth too. 

I am overjoyed to be working as part of the DoulaCare Ireland team and cant wait for what lies ahead.
