Excerpt from Mum and Baby…
I’ve always had a fascination with all things Mum and Baby and have been working with newly delivered parents for over 20 years now. After I specialized as a Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse in 1996 my fascination grew deeper and in 1999 I graduated with BSc Hons Degree in Midwifery. Early years of my training, education, and working life were based in London and Sydney and in 2001 I returned home to Ireland. Since my return I’ve predominately worked as a Community Midwife for one of Dublin’s busiest maternity units, looking after Mums in the antenatal and postnatal disciplines.
Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to see first-hand the benefits of yoga and massage.
I was first introduced to baby massage as a Neonatal Nurse in 1995 where parents of sick and preterm babies were taught containment holds and massage techniques to quiet and calm their little baby.
The effects were immediate and their road to recovery was notably less eventful.
