Hi! My name is Brenda. I am an independent midwife and advocate of women's and children's health. Research shows unequivocally that infant health starts in the womb and that the health of a mother directly effects her baby's wellbeing and development.
My mission is to help as many mothers as possible achieve optimal health from early pregnancy through the first year of baby's life. I help mothers to manage stress and anxiety and to prepare for birth. I also help them integrate the experience of motherhood and to overcome birth trauma.
I have been involved in the birthing world for 30 years. I've attended births in 5 countries over 3 continents including Ireland, UK, France, Saudi Arabia and Rwanda and I've worked with women from all walks of life, from indigenous cultures to royals, I understand how hospitals work and have seen amazing differences in practices across hospitals and services both in Ireland and across the globe!

Somatics is really easy to do and suitable for everyone regardless of experience, age or level of flexibility. It involves using slow, mindful movement to become more aware of our bodies and minds, to release habitual patterns and to connect more deeply to our ourselves from within.
Stress, trauma and injury cause tension in our muscles leading to stiffness, soreness and weakness. The body compensates leading to poor posture and habitual holding patterns, effecting our overall well-being and weakening our immune system..
Somatic movement targets over-contracted muscles to release stress and trauma. It also creates awareness and rewires your brain to reconnect to tired muscles that have "forgotten" how to do their job.
Somatics can help with stress, anxiety and chronic pain. It also really helps with core strength and posture and is effective for tight shoulders, diastasis recti, pelvic floor issues.
