Virtual Doula Services

Due to the Irish Government directives in regards the Corona Virus, from Thursday, March 12th 2020, I will provide a Virtual Doula service for newborn families in Ireland.

Due to the success of this service, I decided to continue to offer a Virtual Doula service.

You may decide to hire a Virtual Doula for different reasons, for example if there are no Doulas available to offer a service in our local area or if you would rather receive a virtual service than having a Doula visiting in your home, or if you already are receiving the help and support from family members and friends and only need the extra professional information and guidance from a Doula.

I will offer you distance support and information as a Postpartum Doula. After initial contact, you will be able to book time on the phone or video conference with me, here.

After an initial FREE 30 minute consultation, I will be able to offer you unlimited text or messenger/email support and phone or video call consultations for €15 per hour. this fee includes one 45 minute phone conversation, research and one follow up email and any text message that refers to the same query.

  • One initial FREE 30 minute consultation on phone or video call.
  • Providing practical tools and advice in matters related to Birth plans, labour comfort measures, newborn care, postnatal mental health, physical recovery, relationships…
