I am a DONA trained birth and postpartum doula. I am a mum to three beautiful children and in 2015 we returned home to Ireland after living in Australia for 10 years.

During my time overseas I began studying Midwifery and 2 years into that we made our decision to come home. With Midwifery put on hold I had an amazing opportunity to follow my passion of supporting mums and their partners through pregnancy, labour and birth as well as in the precious postpartum period.

I believe it is every mum's right to have a positive birth experience with continuity of care from a caring and skilled doula who understands birth. I strongly believe every mum should continue to have that emotional and practical support when they bring their baby home especially in the early weeks after birth when mum, dad and baby are getting to know each other.

Providing mums and their partners with a postpartum plan is a very important part of my support. As a postpartum doula I am there to help guide and empower parents in the fourth trimester.
