Project Description

Rachel Hanlon

I am a DONA International Trained Birth Doula. I am also a Breastfeeding Counsellor and Certified Trageschule Babywearing Consultant.

I have always wanted to support people through labour and birth, long before I had children and before I knew what a Doula was. When I discovered what a Birth Doula was I knew it was what I was made to do. With having 3 babies and being a stay at home mum it wasn’t the right time to train as my babies were small and needed their mum around. So I did other training and supported parents in other ways that fit around them.

Now my babies are grown enough to be comfortable without their mum so I trained with DONA in March ’18 and can attend births and support parents through this wonderful event in their lives.
I believe every person has the right to choose what is right for them and be fully supported to do so. I will always offer unconditional support to my clients.

I have an abundance of experience supporting new parents through my work as a babywearing consultant and volunteering as a Breastfeeding Counsellor. I’m so happy to be able to provide support now through pregnancy and birth too.
