Katie started Nursing Mama with the aim to provide antenatal breastfeeding education to parents in her local area. As a public health nurse, she was seeing many parents experience the same issues when they returned home from hospital. Katie quickly realised if they had better education regarding breastfeeding, understanding how to get started, how to establish a milk supply and have a realistic expectation of breastfeeding, this would have led to a more positive experience. The word of Nursing Mama classes spread, and Katie quickly moved online to reach more parents not only in Ireland but overseas now too.
The Newborn Care class was then created to support, educate & empower parents in Newborn Care. The Weaning from Breastfeeding Class quickly followed due to the increasing number of clients seeking help to stop Breastfeeding and remains one of the most popular classes to date. Nursing Mama offers in person consults within Kildare, Dublin and online Worldwide.
I’m so glad to have found Katie for the breastfeeding consultation when my daughter was born, Katie is full of knowledge and guided me on the positioning and techniques that helped me in my breastfeeding journey. She understood my feeding goals and promptly provided me with a plan, also followed up to make sure I was on track. Highly recommend her consultation especially for first time mothers new to breastfeeding
Such an informative course on New Born care - covering every thing you need to know. Her knowledge and passion for care is amazing & highly recommend all her classes / her podcasts & her instagram page for lots of free resources & information
Excellent course and very well delivered!!
Information very relevant and lots of it !!
Very happy that I did it and the length of it was perfect!!
Really helpful and practical advice. Great to be able to ask questions at the end. Thanks a mill.
The online class with Katie was such a great use of my time. Her information is very precise and accessible, understanding of each individual’s unique situation. She is very knowledgeable and took adequate time to answer all questions. She is very practical from a professional and personal perspective. Highly recommend. I came away feeling empowered and confident on my breastfeeding journey. It was just the type of support I needed. Thanks Katie!!
Did the breastfeeding course and will be doing the newborn care class in a few weeks. Thoroughly enjoyed the breastfeeding class. Katie has such a wealth of knowledge. Feel so much more prepared, and more aware of all the needs to know with regards to feeding options. Really looking forward to the next class.
Katie's webinar was great. Full of information considered from every possible situation. Personally, I would have preferred if the Q&A session was done as a live (virtual) conversation rather than the Zoom chat function. Aside from this, an excellent session!

Great class with lots of practical advice. Would absolutely recommend!
Absolutely loved this class! So full of information and Katie I'd extremely knowledgeable. I decided to do the class because I wasn't sure whether I was ready to start weaning or not and I wanted information on how it's done. Katie delivered what I wanted to know and so much more. For now, I have decided not to wean just yet. But when I do decide its time, I have all the information I need to do it safely and at the right time for me and my baby. Thank you Katie!
