Hi there! I’m Sinead, a mum of two living in Cirencester, Cotswolds. I eat flapjack endlessly, I could always nap, and as much as I love the openness of the countryside, I also long for the beautiful welsh beaches where I used to live in Cardiff.
My beautiful homebirth with my second baby was a hugely healing experience, compared to the difficult, planned homebirth-turned-hospital, birth of my first baby. These experiences propelled me even deeper into birth work, to be standing alongside families and helping to guide them through their own unique journeys - I am incredibly honoured to be able to do this work.
Being a Doula and Yoga Therapist means that I have a broad set of skills to draw from. Truly understanding the body and how it changes in pregnancy is so important in preparing for birth, but also learning tools and techniques to remain calm in challenging situations so you feel in control and powerful whatever is happening around you.
I recognise that becoming a parent is a massive change on a physical, emotional and spiritual level, one that often encompasses pure joy and elation, alongside grief and loss, on many levels. I am here to help you navigate this transition.
I'm also a birth and motherhood photographer where I am lucky enough to document people's journey in parenthood, and include this service in my packages.
Whether I am a small part of your journey, or I am around for the full ride, I hold a safe and calm space for you. My hope is that you feel more confident, empowered and supported in your own unique experience.
Please get in touch if you think we'd be a good fit, and you'd like to know more about the services I offer.
