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 considering all types of birth. Families availing of my services enter their labour feeling confident and strong versus anxious or fearful.  I have experience and training to provide care for natural (unmedicated) births, medicated births, VBACs and cesarean births in hospital and 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.

Placenta Encapsulation

Requests for placenta encapsulation and other remedies have increased dramatically in Ireland!  I am a certified placenta specialist having trained with the world renowned IPEN program.  IPEN's strict preparation and safety guidelines ensure that I follow the highest safety standards while providing services to families in Ireland.

Please visit my Placenta Encapsulation page to learn more about this unique service, the different remedies you can have made and to read more about the wonderful postnatal benefits your placenta has to offer!

Offer for May!

Book in for birth doula services and receive either one extra antenatal or postnatal visit!

Antenatal visits are provided in your home and are a way to prepare for your labour. Sessions may focus on birth preferences, comfort measures, any pregnancy fears, childbirth education, etc. 

Postnatal visits are an opportunity to discuss your baby's birth, ask questions regarding infant care, a chance to learn babywearing and receive help as you adjust to parenthood.

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.
