WELCOME TO DUBLIN DOULA birth mentoring services. The original and best DUBLIN DOULAS with 15 years  experience supporting mothers, families and babies in the Greater Dublin area. I I am a birth expert, offering, established and trusted birth mentoring services, doula services, placenta encapsulation services, birth advocacy services and wellness mentoring. I have well established working arrangements with  other healthcare professionals in the community and  all three Dublin maternity hospitals. I run a unique individual Irish business tailor made to families in Dublin and  I am renowned within Irish and international  birth circles as a women’s advocate and supporter by families, midwives, advocacy organisations, the Department of Health, HIQA and the HSE.

I work with mothers fathers and families to ensure that the pre conception, pregnancy and birth of your baby are memorable and  times when you feel supported and informed.

Each birth heralds not just the birth of a baby but the birth of a mother too, and my role is to nurture the birth of the mother in you. If you are already a mother then this birth offers you an opportunity to evolve into a mother of a growing family; each new child changes us and our family and my role is to help you prepare for that emotionally and physically. If you are about to become a father or a second mother then my role is to also support you in the pregnancy and birth of your child. I will enable you to support your partner with confidence and ease and I will ensure that you are a confident advocate for your partner either at home or in the hospital.

I have worked as a doula since 2003 and so am one of Dublin’s most experienced doulas. I have experience of working with mums having caesarean births, home births, low tech hospital births and high tech hospital births and with women expecting twins!

As a doula, I  serve the three main Dublin maternity hospitals of The Coombe, The NMH and The Rotunda, and have attended many home births too. I am based in Sandymount, Dublin which means all three hospitals are within easy access.

I have seen the great benefit that having a doula can offer a mother, especially if she is a first time mother trying to negotiate the maternity services. Research on doulas show that their presence can significantly reduce the incidence of interventions. Mothers who have had difficult experiences in previous births can also especially benefit from the services of a doula. However, I firmly believe that EVERY mother deserves a doula  All mothers deserve to have someone there just for them during a birth; someone to nurture, care and support not just with the head but with the heart too! More on the benefits of doulas can be found here. If you are not sure what a doula does then read more here.

You can find out more about what my previous clients have thought of me by reading my testimonials, and you can find out more about how I came to be a doula by reading more about me. If you would like to talk through any of my services please call me or contact me. If you are wondering how much it costs to use my services, you ll find more information on each of the pages detailing the services, but I talk more about doula costs here.

A doula supports a mother during pregnancy, helping her to digest the evidence, empowering her in her choices and preferences and enabling her to articulate any fears so that they can be faced and worked through. A doula helps prepare a mother's body mind and soul for labour and birth discussing coping strategies and preparation techniques.

In the run up to her due date a doula speaks with the woman every day and supports her, especially if she passes the 40 week mark.

In early labour a doula helps a mother settle into her labour or she accompanies her to hospital for her planned c birth. As labour becomes established a doula provides mental physical and emotional support, never leaving the mother's side. At the same time a doula empowers a partner (if there is one), to advocate and offer support.

If an unexpected c birth arises a doula makes sure the mother is prepared and all her preferences for a mother centred c birth are effected. At the same time she waits with the partner so that they feel fully supported gowning up and reminds them how to offer maximum support in theatre.

After birth, a doula encourages skin to skin contact, and if the mother has chosen to breastfeed a doula ensures the mother has access to the appropriate information and support.

In the postnatal period a doula supports a new mother in adapting to a huge change in her life. She offers telephone support in the first weeks and visits the new family.

And when all is said and done, a doula carefully holds the woman's birth story close to her heart as a sacred event. There is a special bond created between a mother and her doula that is hard to describe.

Every year on a baby's birthday a doula remembers that mother's strength determination and uniqueness.

So today, congratulations again to my doula client who gave birth this day last year, on her own terms, to her beautiful baby girl, and thank you to her for remembering the special relationship we share 💛🌹💛

I appear to have been shortlisted for "Doula of the Year" (along with three other doulas working in Ireland).

I am not entirely sure how the process works and what entitles you to be nominated or short listed. But thank you to the persons/ people who think I deserve an award for supporting women, birth, midwives, mothering, birth evidence based practice and breastfeeding <3

Perhaps one is supposed to get all one's followers friends clients and social media contacts to vote? I dunno this is all alien territory for me!

Ultimately its me who should thank all the pregnant people and families I support for letting me be part of your amazing journey to parenthood <3

Congratulations to my doula client for January,a first time mum, who carefully prepared for, and planned for the birth she knew she was capable of having. Who then with all her supports in place gave birth normally and naturally with no interventions to a much longed for baby girl born, in the caul, caught by herself and her husband. 💙💚
