Project Description

Contact

I live in North Sligo with my husband Eddie, just a stone’s throw from the beautiful wild Atlantic. Our kids are all grown up now and living their lives away.

I spent over 20 years working in childcare and so often wondered who is supporting these mums post birth. The year 2013 became the year I would take that jump into offering post birth support, setting up my business Mamogs.

As a Doula I commit to providing non judgemental support, care and understanding, along with empowering parents on their journey into parenthood and beyond. With me I bring an air of calm, as I hold space for you to share your experiences, feel supported in your parenting choices and off load any fears and concerns you may have. I will share my wealth of knowledge and years of experience of working with families of newborns, including those of twins.
