What Women Have Said

Here are some kind words from some wonderful women that have attended our workshops.

“Good vibes! Everything was so interesting and thought-provoking. I am taking away from the workshop: the power of me and my body. To trust my instinct and to be calm. Women’s intelligent design and how special that is.”

Ciara, second time Mum, Ennis

“Having a doula to support me before, during, and after the birth of my son was invaluable. The workshops gave me the ability to empathise with women in a similar life stage as myself. I would absolutely recommend this amazing group of doulas to any woman.”

Alison, first time Mum, Limerick

 “I definitely feel more prepared for the birth after the workshop. I feel more calm and ‘ready’. The workshop made me feel very supported and safe. Hearing the birth stories was very useful and getting to ask questions to Sandra (the midwife) about the hospital protocol.”

Erin, first time Mum, Limerick

 “The mix of points of view of a doula, a midwife and another mother made the workshop very complete and powerful. I feel very reassured and more informed.”

Claudia, first time Mum, Tipperary

“I liked everything about the workshop! This will EASE you! Chatting to women with experience and the same worries as me. Support, belly massage, hypnobirthing – amazing day, thank you!”

Ciara, first time Mum, Limerick

“I am taking away more confidence to use my voice more, about what feels right to me. It was too short, I just so enjoyed it!”

Mena, third time Mum, Limerick
