Dee has been facilitating support groups for expectant and new parents since 2009. She sees the real side of the new baby haze and shares practical knowledge to get you through it. When there wasn't a lot of support for breastfeeding mums locally, she set up a weekly breastfeeding group, and trained with Cuidiu to become a Breastfeeding Counsellor. Fascinated with birth - and the sheer volume of benefits for keeping mum and baby close after birth, she then trained as a Birth Doula, Babywearing Consultant and also a Dancing for Birth Instructor. She has channeled all of this training into the courses on this very website to foster a positive Birth Mindset for you.
Dream up your ideal birth, and then work towards it.
Birth your baby your way.
Wear your baby during it first few months in a sling, to support bonding and brain development.
This name encapsulates exactly what I'm hoping to share throughout this website with courses and affirmations. A little change in mindset can make a big difference, it is what enabled me to have an incredible birthing experience, and it can help you to create the birth of your dreams. Dream - Birth - Wear <3
“Dee I just want to thank you again for your services as my Doula. You brought such a calming and reassuring presence to the whole experience and completely professional. I will be recommending you to any expectant mothers out there who would like support to alleviate anxieties and support them in their childbirth experience”
I've been attending 'Dancing for Birth' with Deirdre over the past few weeks; picking up tips, learning lots of helpful moves, having a general great time with giggles-a-plenty. I would really recommend the class for anyone expecting, as Deirdre is reinforcing anything we've learned at Antenatal classes. Great knowledge being imparted-come along and see for yourself.

My husband & I just had an antenatal class with Doula Dee. We were made feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. The class was very informative, we learnt lots of tips to bring into the birthing with us. And any questions we had regarding pregnancy & labour were answered with great detail. Highly recommended Doula Dees classes. I feel it won't be our last meeting as I know she can provide support on lots of topics ie breastfeeding, baby wearing etc. Great to know the service is there for you if you need it x

i would recommend Deirdre to anyone thinking of having a baby, pregnant or with a new baby. She is a wealth of knowledge. helped me with breastfeeding and gave me so much time and support during those first few dsys and weeks with new baby. She also discussed slings with me and showed me how to wear safely. Again she spent ages showing me how to put sling on and adjust. There is no such thing as a stupid question when xonsulting Deirdre she is patient and kind. i would have loved the dancing for birth classes if they were running during my pregnancy. the moves look like they would offer such relief during pregnancy and labour... thanks Deirdre.

Many thanks to Deirdre for the use of the ring sling which was fantastic for our holiday to New York. My LG is 8months and was very happy to sleep in it on the plane. It allowed me freedom to move my arms and even have a snooze. It was very handy for breastfeeding too. I found it fantastic for the airport especially for boarding the plane-i was able to carry some baggage comfortably. She was very happy to help me do some shopping and was so content in the sling. I do suffer from a sore back but found the sling to be very comfortable and it was easy to use. I highly recommend a sling for anyone going on holidays with a baby! Thanks Deirdre x
