A Labour of Love - Ailbhe Garrihy

Season 3, Ep. 6

Giving birth is scary - its also incredibly empowering and often, full of love.


This week our host Sinead O'Moore is joined by Ailbhe Garrihy to talk about her pandemic pregnancy, induction, birth and lockdown life as a new mum during this crazy year.


Although without her husband Ruaidhrí for the beginning of her induction, Ailbhe never felt alone thanks to the incredible midwives at the Rotunda Hospital - she was able to get into her zone, control the controllable's and while in the moment felt hugely empowered knowing that she was the only women who could birth her baby.


At everymum we understand why there is a lot of anxiety and loneliness for expectant and new parents right now.

From missing out on the pregnancy you imagined, partner restrictions and learning how to do this without seeing friends and family


But we are a tribe of incredible women – here to support each other.
