Supporting Your Birth, Your Way!

 
 

Congratulations & Welcome!

Welcome, I'm Michelle!  I am a birth doula based in Limerick.  I offer non-judgmental support & information to expectant families during pregnancy and birth. Women and couples availing of my service receive continuous support and enter their labour feeling confident and empowered versus anxious or unprepared.  Your unique birth preferences are embraced every step of the way with thoughtful and attentive care.  I have experience and training to provide support for natural (unmedicated) births, medicated births, VBACs and caesarean births in hospital or at home.  I serve families in County Limerick and surrounding areas through pregnancy, birth and those early postpartum days.  Please see my Birth Doula section for more information on how a doula can support your family.

Placenta Encapsulation

Are you hoping to boost your recovery and really take care of YOU following birth!?  Placenta encapsulation is a no-hassle way of replenishing your body after nine months of supporting foetal growth.  These easy to consume capsules offer a host of postnatal benefits, including reduced bleeding time, more energy, reduction in postnatal depression symptoms, less hair loss, clearer skin and increased hormone balance.

Please visit my Placenta Encapsulation page to learn more about this unique service, the different remedies you may have made and to read more about the wonderful postnatal benefits your placenta has to offer!  Booking in for placenta services is now easy with my online booking form!

Fertility Support

The journey to become a parent is often assumed to be an easy one, however, the reality is more and more families are experiencing difficulties when trying to conceive.  Availing of support from a fertility doula means you will experience continuous emotional support during all stages of your fertility journey.  This sensitive service will help you navigate the fear, anxiety, depression and isolation many people experience when the road to conception is not a smooth one.  To learn more about this is service, which may be provided in-person, virtually or in a group setting, please see here!

CUB Kit Rental

The CUB (Comfortable Upright Birth) is a comfortable, stable inflatable support tool that helps expectant mothers get into a variety of upright positions during pregnancy and labour.  It allows mothers to adjust to the positions that are the most physically comfortable for them at home and in hospital.  Being upright during labour has numerous benefits to both mum and baby.

Please see my CUB Rental page for more information on the benefits of upright birth and how you can rent the CUB in Ireland from 37-42 weeks gestation!

Belly Binding

Belly binding is a tradition that involves wrapping a piece of cloth around the hips, abdomen and rib cage to just below the bust.  This promotes natual postnatal healing of the uterus and other organs following birth, along with many other benefits!  As one of the few professional belly binders in Ireland, I provide this service to families in County Limerick and the Southwest.  

My Belly Binding page has more information about this unique, customised service, packages that I offer and answers some of the most frequently asked questions.
