About me

 
Hi 😊
My name is Kate. I am from Vicarstown, a small village in Co. Laois and currently living in Kilmuckridge in Co Wexford beside the Sea with my husband Dan and our two boys Milo and Luka and our new tiny one who will be with us this winter.
I have a background in Science, Zoology, and have always been in awe of the animal kingdoms and their ability to adapt to changing environments. Throughout my pregnancies I was amazed to see my body changing physically, hormonally and emotionally, to get ready for baby.

Since having my son Milo I have gained so much respect and trust in the ability of my body. Even more so, since experiencing birth and labour for the second time around, when I knew that I could do it. I could completely let go of any fear and give in to my body and trust that she knew what to do, and she did 😊.

I trained as a placenta remedies specialist in 2016 and am so privileged to be part of a network that is all about respecting your body and taking from it what it has to give. Encapsulating placentas is such an honour. The feeling that I get driving to/from a house or the hospital with a precious placenta is unbelievable. 

The placenta is such a precious and spiritual organ, still connected to the little life just born hours before and feel a huge sense of responsibility and respect for it when I am processing remedies for mothers. I feel a great sense of relief closing the circle and returning the remedies full of nourishment and healing energy back to the mother and baby.

Milo came along 5 days early and I wasn't prepared. I unfortunately couldn't encapsulate my placenta and noticed that I lost a lot of hair when breastfeeding, suffered from low energy and anxiety in the first few months of motherhood.

With Luka however, I was prepared for and benefitted hugely from the remedies. I had a smoothie and capsules and found that my energy levels were so much better!! No hair loss, plenty of milk and more energy even with a toddler running around.
This time round I am going to get every remedy on offer, smoothie, capsules, tincture, essence and homeopathic remedy. The smoothies are so energising and uplifting in those first few days and then a few months later the essence and tincture can really help lift me energetically if baba is going through a regression or if things are getting a bit heavy. I plan to keep my homeopathic remedies for myself or any of my babies in times of stress or anxiety throughout the years and I will even be able to hold onto a remedy and get it remade to help me when I am going through menapause. 
I trained as a birth and postpartum Doula in 2019 and have been working with new mothers and their families since my training. I am amazed by the power of birth motherhood and what it pushes women and families to feel and learn and think I will be continuously learning with every new client. I feel very lucky to be working and learning in such an intimate, powerful and instinctive space.
