Mairéad trained as a General Nurse in Mercy Hospital,Cork in the ’80’s and then worked for 5 years in a Surgical I.C.U in Munich. Upon her return to Ireland she became a mother and struggled through the very steep learning curve that becoming a mother entails.
In Mairéad’s experience she found mothering through breastfeeding was a wonderful way to understand her baby’s needs. The closeness necessary for breastfeeding enhanced her appreciation for and understanding of her baby.
Babies really are marvellous at communicating … if we just listen, watch and hold them close then we can learn a lot.
Mairéad trained as a breastfeeding counsellor and has enjoyed helping mothers and babies for the past 12 years In 2009 she sat the I.B.C.L.E and became accredited as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. Now that her own children are settled happily in school she looks forward to working with even more mothers and their babies.
