Meet Our Doulas
Hi I’m Eleanor
I live in Kilcoole with my husband Wayne and two children Ella & Bailey. After two totally different postpartum experiences myself and listening to other women’s stories, I have come to appreciate the value of support, encouragement & a little TLC during the early days of a new family’s journey. This inspired me to research into and become a postpartum doula to help nurture families to grow and thrive.
As a postpartum doula I feel that families both new and growing should feel minded, nurtured and cared for during the precious early days and weeks. I’m passionate about encouraging families to really slow down and embrace the fourth trimester as it’s such a sacred time. Caring for families mind, body and soul as they transition into parenthood is at the heart of my work. Having trained in massage I love to bring this to the families I work with. Massage can help mothers feel grounded and gives them that bit of time to reconnect with themselves. After all, giving birth is one of the most significant experiences, both physically and emotionally, a woman will ever experience.
I believe what the female body does throughout pregnancy, labour, birth and in the postpartum is truly amazing!
The help and support that I had received after each of my babies from my mother, was something I wanted to offer other women, as I saw this as something that is lacking in our communities. When I came across the postpartum doula training I was very excited that this role existed! I trained with DONA in 2018 and have been supporting families since then! It is a privilege to be able to offer this service to new parents and be there to reassure and nurture them as they make their way into parenthood. I am passionate about helping families to trust their instincts, as they are the ones who know their babies best. I believe that all mothers deserve nurturing care and support so they can have a positive experience in those first precious weeks. I have also trained with Antenatal Ireland as a childbirth educator and offer online and private one day antenatal courses. I am an active member of my local Cuidiu group in North Wicklow and also serve on the National Maternity Hospital steering group as a service user representative.
We help families new, and growing. We can help you settle into your new family as it changes. Life will be busier so having support will make all the difference. Your other children will be going through an adjustment period as well. We will ease everyone through this time.
