A mum of two I had my first little one while living in Sydney Australia. With no family support available I thankfully found a wonderful Doula to help me through the pregnancy and birth. After a previous loss I was nervous and was so thankful for the additional emotional support I had from my Doula. After a move home back to Ireland I had my little boy and unfortunately this time I did not have a Doula present. Looking back I realised how much I needed one and it was then that my interest in becoming a Doula myself was sparked!

I trained with DoulaCare Ireland as a Birth doula while also volunteering with my local Cuidiu in Wexford. I am a qualified parent to parent supporter in the South East and also a trained Birth Reflections facilitator. Birth reflections are something I hope to bring into my Doula practice as I believe the healing of any previous pregnancy losses, fears or trauma truly helps in opening up the way for positive future pregnancies.

I believe that women should be supported in whatever decisions they make in regards to their birth and as a Doula I want to help make every birth a special and positive one where parents feel heard and respected.
