About me

Hi there! I’m Sinead, a mum of two with a love for all things pregnancy and birth.

I support people as a yoga teacher and doula, and I am 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.

How did I end up here? After studying Psychology at degree level, I dabbled in various trainings and potential careers around mindfulness, counselling skills and other therapies. Over a few years, I worked for mental health and children’s charities, supporting vulnerable children and families. It wasn’t until I started training as a Yoga teacher in West Wales with Yoga Satsanga Ashram, that a new path in helping people opened up and I knew I’d found something special.

Fast forward through undertaking further perinatal yoga teacher trainings, yoga therapy training with Real Yoga, training as a Doula with The Original Birth Connection, and having my own children, that my calling for supporting people during pregnancy and the postpartum period became clear. Fuelled by an emotionally difficult first birth myself, and even harder first few months afterwards, my desire to support others through the perinatal period became even stronger. 

Being a Doula and Yoga Therapist means that I have a broad set of skills to draw from. I recognise that becoming a parent is so much more than ‘just having a baby’ – it 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.

When I’m not being a birth geek, my other life loves are photography, art, music, eating far too much flapjack, and spending time outdoors.

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.
