Thank you for visiting my website BirthingMamas. I provide information, products and services to assist women and their partners in having a positive pregnancy and childbirth experience, in hospital or at home. Read through the website for more details on GentleBirth Workshops, Doula Services and essencia Aromatherapy products. I have lots of positive birth stories you can read here. Or find out more about me here

You can choose to have a positive birth experience with the help of the new GentleBirth App and enhance it with my Weekend Workshop - held monthly in Cork. There's also the GentleBirth Meet Up and VBAC Workshops available throughout the year. Plenty for you to choose from.

essencia home


My essencia aromatherapy range was developed after requests from my clients, and other birth workers, for a quality product at affordable prices. With my aromatherapy qualifications I have extended this range to help meet the needs of my customers with products for pregnancy, birth and while parenting.


Doula Services

I have worked as a doula for many years and have developed my skills to help clients have a more personal experience. This led me to develop the DoulaCare Ireland service with Jen Crawford to help more mothers and their partners access the care they want, and the care they deserve.
