Your Birth ~ Your Way
I am a Dona trained Birth Doula and GentleBirth Instructor serving Dublin, Kildare, Wicklow and Meath. I provide informational, emotional and physical support for pregnancy, labour and postpartum. I also teach private GentleBirth Workshops in the comfort of your own home. (This can be added on to my Doula role also)
GentleBirth combines brain science, birth science and technology to empower your positive birth through preparation.
I believe families deserve to feel at ease, nurtured, supported & informed as they bring a baby into their lives.
"It was a calm relaxed experience that considered my every preference and that made the world of difference at every turn..because you made sure to look after us in every way and set the tone and atmosphere for us to stay calm.....So many things you did that made a difference, the list would be miles long. I'll be forever grateful."

"Shelley was very professional and caring towards the mum and her partner. She was also very nice and helpful towards the midwifery staff"
-Midwife, The Coombe
"If a Doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it"
-Dr. John H. Kennell
"Shelley and I made an instant connection in the weeks prior to the birth. She was compassionate, supportive and remained in constant communication, always taking the time to check in and answer and questions my husband and I had. Most importantly, Shelley made me feel strong and empowered enough to book a much wanted home birth; something I always dreamed of.
When the day came, Shelley's skills as a doula shone, surpassing all expectations. She had a calming influence on my husband which allowed him to be much more involved and hands on.. I felt safe, strong and calm with her by our side. She also worked brilliantly with my midwife to create the most perfect birthing environment."
"Shelley has a lovely calming and gentle approach. Would love to work with Shelley in the future!"
