Born and raised in Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, from a very young age I felt the calling to help others. In 2006 I completed my Nursing Degree and started working in one of the main Lisbon hospitals. In 2007 love brought me to Ireland and I began working as a nurse in St Luke’s General Hospital. I loved my job, but after having my first baby I fell in love with “mummies and babies” world and decided to do a Higher Diploma in Midwifery.

Working in a maternity hospital is a beautiful and enriching experience. As the proud mother of 4 children (including twins!!!), all I’ve learned from the books merged with what I learned from real life.

In 2013 I trained with the International Association of Infant Massage and qualified as a CIMI (Certified Infant Massage Instructor), and have taught more than 600 families the gift baby massage.

In 2016, I became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). This is a qualification created by UNICEF and WHO to define and maintain the highest standards of lactation support. It is internationally considered the highest qualification in breastfeeding and lactation. Since then I have provided Lactation Support Services in the hospital, community and in a private clinic. 

I’m also a very proud serving member of the Baby Massage Ireland (BMI) council as well as the Association of Lactation Consultants of Ireland (ALCI) council.

I am very happy to be able to offer my services to the families of Kilkenny, and worldwide though video call, and to contribute to many happy motherhood journeys.
