Erin Ann O'Reilly RN IBCLC
My journey into birth work began in 2009 officially when I stumbled upon a DONA birth doula training. Since then I have supported countless ( but unforgettable ) families in having positive birth experiences. I graduated MUN School of Nursing in 2005 and have had the pleasure of working in many speciality areas of nursing. I believe this gives me a unique perspective when educating families about the process of birth and how to interact within the health care system in an optimal way.
As a dedicated life long learner and committed professional in women's health I have completed many trainings.
-Certified birth and post partum doula - Doula Canada
-Certified Childbirth Educator
-Spinning Babies Parent Educator
-International Board Certified Lactation Consultant ( IBCLC )
-Registered Nurse ( Bachelors Degree of Nursing - 2005 )
-Pediatric Sleep Specialist
I have also completed many trainings as in Trauma Informed Care, Sexual Assault Crisis Intervention, Perinatal Mental Health, Holistic Nutrition, Attachment Parenting, and more.
My intention when working with families is to help them achieve their birth goals, whatever they may be. Natural, epidural planned, cesarean, VBAC, open book, whatever your intentions are... I will do everything in my power to help you have the best experience possible. I strive to empower, inspire and to provide unwavering support. I believe that having a positive birth experience can profoundly impact a woman's immediate and long term well being. Having a doula by your side believing in you and helping you through the birth process can undoubtably help you reach your birth goals.
I also really love my dogs ( I have 2 French Bulldogs ), my 4 kids, and my plants ( I have a huge collection ! ). I could talk all day about those things :)
