My name is Brigid DeBarra. I am a birth and post partum doula based in Cork City, serving Cork City and Cork City Suburbs. Originally from Canada, I moved to Cork in 2015 to study Sociology in UCC. I then went on to complete my masters and I’ve used this knowledge to better understand where extra support is needed in my community. I knew I wanted to work one on one within the local community in a supportive role, and that the well being of women and their families was of great importance to me. birth and the rights of women have always been at the forefront of my professional career. I realised that there was a lot of work to be done in the maternity world and in our hospitals. Birthing people and their families need vital support and accurate, evidence based information in order to make informed deceisions about their bodies and their births so that they main regain and maintain body autonomy during such a vulnerable yet magical time in their lives. I have since completed my birth and post partume doula training with doula care Ireland and am now supporting families in and around cork city. Continuity of care is an essential part of my doula work so I have also qualified as a yoga teacher to help birthing persons further recover their mind and body after their 6 week post partum period.
