Holistic midwifery care
I always thought about homebirth when I thought about midwifery and in my training in Germany I was able to attend some births at home, in birth centres and smaller maternity units with birthing pools. It always facinated me how empowered woman were, once they decided to birth fully themselves. Homebirth is becoming more popular again and the new NICE guidelines published, that midwifey-led care is the safest option for a woman with a low risk, straight forward pregnancy.
I am offering a full midwifery-led service in agreement and under the guidelines with the HSE. My Memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the HSE gives me clinical indemnity insurance to care for woman in pregnancy, labour, birth and the postnatal period. I am looking forward to be your partner in this wonderful adventure. Get in touch for more details.
Antenatal and Hypnobirthing classes
I offer a range of classes tailored to your needs. You can book a one day antenatal class full of Information and exercises or a two day class that includes Tools and advise on Hypnobirthing techniques.
I will come to you and help you to understand and learn about birth, your body and your baby and hopefully empower you to birth the way, that is right for you.
Get in touch and talk to me about your needs and preferences and I am sure we will find a way that suits you best.
I am really looking forward speaking to you.
In 2017 I trained to teach Hypnobirthing Techniques and will be able to aid you and your Partner in working with these Techniques to empower you in your birthing.
I also offer selected Aroma oils for you and your baby.
In 2018 I attended a course for midwives to use aromatherapy in childbirth which is a great addition to my therapy skills.

I was inspired by many great woman along my way to where I am now. I got great inspiration from Ina May Gaskin and her approach to childbirth but even more I love all the wonderful ways of Ingeborg Stadelmann, a german midwife, who offers a great range of oils and remedies for the small and big hick-ups in pregnancy. Her book "A consultation with the midwife" is still like a bible to me and I use many of her products and ideas in my work with woman.
Acupuncture in pregnancy
In Germany A.T. Roemer developed a course in acupuncture exclusively for midwives. I started this course in 2014 and will fully qualify in 2016. I can use acupuncture to ease and treat a variety of pregancy problems such as Hyperemesis, backpain, Oedema and breech presentation. I also offer acupuncture as antenatal preparation for birth from 36 weeks gestation. Studies showed it ripens the cervix, can initiate labour,often reduces labour pain and helps the body to prepare for a natural birth. After birth I can help with lactation problems and recovery from birth. As my client for a homebirth you can avail of the service on my visits, if wanted, but I also see woman that are booked for a hospital birth. Get in touch for more information.
