Hi there! I’m Sinead, a mum of two living in Cirencester, Cotswolds. It's true I am a little obsessed and so passionate about all things fertility, pregnancy, birth and postpartum.
My calling to support people through these particular stages in life was such a strong one, especially once I had my own children.
I feel very lucky to be able to do this work, and to support such incredible families in their unique journeys. I will always work with you holistically, and my hope is that everyone has the opportunity to understand their choices, and are supported with these.
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.
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. 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.
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.
