Project Description

Louise Murphy

I’m a mum of three and have experienced three very different births – an emergency caesarean, a VBAC with epidural and a second (very fast!) VBAC without epidural.

I trained as a Gentlebirth Instructor in 2015 after searching for something that would help women to have more empowered and gentler births, and after learning about the huge benefits a doula can have for women, also trained as a birth doula in 2016.

I give pregnancy pilates, baby massage and postnatal exercise classes in Clonmel and Cahir (Co. Tipperary) and also host positive birth meetups each month in Limerick and Tipperary, as well as hosting a Friends of Breastfeeding group twice a month in Clonmel.

I love my work but have hobbies too so when I have time, I’ll usually be found in the woods riding my lovely horse, Freddy or walking with my family, playing football or driving my ‘Mum’s taxi’ to trainings or matches!
