In these very difficult and uncertain times for pregnant people in Ireland I am currently taking my antenatal doula package online. People need even more support from a trusted source than ever now. My prenatal doula package is designed to offer consistent support, education and information from the time you book me to the time you have your baby, and includes a free postnatal visit from an IBCLC (Lactation Consultant). I am a leading source of information and support and have been active in the Irish media drawing attention to the needs of pregnant people at this time. I am also a Pregnancy Yoga teacher and I will help you stay focused fit healthy prepared and empowered for your birth what ever the circumstances.

My online Antenatal Birth Mentoring  and Birth Coaching Service is designed for people looking for support guidance and information form a trusted source all the way through their pregnancy. Our maternity service is highly fragmented and often pregnant people find that they do not get to see the same person at each visit. Having an antenatal doula or a birth mentor enables you to have one person always there for your all the way through your pregnancy. My birth mentoring service enables you to feel confident in your birth preparation, and also to feel empowered ready for your parenting journey.

My service includes:

  • A free consultation on the phone to decide whether I am a good match for you and your partner(if you have one).
  • Four online antenatal sessions to discuss your needs in labour and to help you draw up your birth preferences  and to focus on  birth preparation. These may be done in the comfort of your home or depending on government guidelines online.

Topics covered in these sessions include
