About Me



Hi! Nice to meet you. I'm Dara. 

I went through and came out the other side of my own Fertility Journey

Over 60 Cycles of hope, longing, fear, loss, grief, anger, sadness and feeling left behind. 

A further 2 year IVF journey

Followed by high anxiety in pregnancy and postpartum. 

In looking for support I was shocked and saddened to find very little or indeed any appropriate support. To find space to feel seen, heard, held, acknowledged and like someone really understood.


I went on a journey of my own then in training to become able to support others in a way that was and still is so badly needed. 


In doing so I subsequently went on my own healing journey. I look at this as what I have previously referred to as 'A You First Approach'.  It is so important for me to have taken this approach and embraced my own internal healing journey. It means I bring with me a different energy when supporting others. I am able to know when I am being triggered and have a supervision space to bring this to. Having done my own healing it enables me to hold space for others. To go on a journey with no limits as to what I can explore with others as I have done the work on myself. 


I am an open, authentic, transparent book. I really enjoy connecting with others.. I am passionate about supporting others in fertility, otherhood, pregnancy and preparing for and navigating motherhood. I love to read, go for walks, music, dancing and a glass of vino and natter with my girlfriends. I also very much love and enjoy time to myself. I am so grateful for the patience and love from my husband and daughter, family and friends. I am very excited for where this next chapter bring me.
