Doula Donna

Donna Murphy

Hi, I’m Doula Donna. I am a full spectrum doula covering antenatal sessions, birth support and postpartum support. I am Garda vetted and insured.

My aim is to help families to make the transition from pregnancy through to early parenthood as prepared and supported as possible. My goal is to reduce the levels of birth trauma that is occurring today.

My hope is to change the birthing mindset from one of fear, medical and painful to one of empowerment, natural and instinctual. I want to give women back confidence in themselves and their birthing abilities and bodies.

I support every type of birth, hospital and home birth. Physiological births and medicated births. Breastfeeding and formula feeding.

I offer research based information, guidance, advocacy and continuity of care to help mams have a positive birth experience. I provide emotional and physical support to a mother before, during and after pregnancy.

I have a special interest in supporting families that are pregnant after an infertility journey, as I have personally gone through my own fertility journey and treatment. I also believe that families need extra care, support and understanding in pregnancy after loss.
