About New Baby
We are dedicated, experienced midwife managers practising in the clinical, teaching and counselling areas of nursing, midwifery and paediatrics for over 30 years.
We currently work in a renowned Dublin maternity hospital. Our area of expertise is Parent Education providing up to date professional antenatal classes with guidance and advice on pregnancy, breathing techniques, birth, baby care and feeding choices. Margaret featured on TV3's Ireland AM as maternity adviser and has written numerous articles for health magazines. She also trained in hypnobirthing which is an unique method of relaxed childbirth. Hypnobirthing helps women remain calm and in control during labour.
Expecting a baby is a very special time in your life. We are very aware and sensitive to the needs of future parents and their babies and this is reflected in our antenatal class.
Feedback from some of our Happy Parents!
"Carmel and Margaret,
Just wanted to send a quick email to say we really enjoyed the class on Saturday. It was really informative but not too intense. The practical work was really useful,and hopefully having practised together now, we will remember at least some of it when it comes to the crunch!"

"Carmel and Margaret,
I would like to say thank you for the very informative class on Saturday .
Both myself and Stephen left feeling a lot more confident about the up coming arrival. We felt you answered any questions we had and we really enjoyed the floor work....and I have set reminders on my phone to do my pelvic floor exercises."

"Dear Carmel & Margaret,
Just wanted to send a note to say how much myself and Mark enjoyed the antenatal class in the Crowne Plaza.
We enjoyed the day hugely and learned loads of really interesting things and had many myths debunked. The pack you handed out was great too and is filed away for moments of inevitable panic!
Thanks a million again,

It has given me a lot to think about, and I am so glad that we went with you, as your many years of experience were clearly evident and beneficial and I trust every bit of information received."

"Hi Margaret! First of all thanks so much to you and Carmel for our antenatal class experience! You're both so professional with a sense of humour too and that's so important! I'll be telling all mammies to be and already have told some!
