My passion has always been to give continuity of care to low-risk women in a community setting, and after my own two home births, I decided to become a midwife, so that I could join the fabulous team of community midwives in Cork.
I moved to the UK to qualify as a midwife and gain experience in midwifery-led settings, and worked in both birthing units and delivery suites. After returning to Ireland, I worked in postnatal care in CUMH. I have been a home birth midwife in Cork since March 2017. I am passionate about supporting women to have the birth they want. My aim is for the women I care for to be well-informed so they can make the best choices for themselves around pregnancy, birth, infant feeding and parenting.
I am a certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and am thrilled to be able to offer support to breastfeeding mums both within the Home Birth scheme and privately. I am also offering breastfeeding preparation classes.
