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.

                   Good Morning Carmel & Margaret,

I would just like to say thank you very much for the very informative antenatal class on Saturday .Both myself and Sean left feeling a lot more confident upon the upcoming arrival. We felt you answered any questions we had, in particular about when we should go into the hospital as I was getting quite anxious about not knowing what to do.  We really enjoyed the floor work part of the day also and I hope that it will beneficial to me on the day of the birth!  And. I have set reminders in my phone to do my pelvic floor exercises!    Grace .                                                                                                                                                                                   

                                                                                                                                                                                                                     November 2017



"Dear Carmel & Margaret,

Just wanted to send a note to say how much myself and Mark enjoyed the antenatal class on 17/6/17 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,
Lara"                                                                                                                                                                                                                  JULY 2017
