Kitty Hackel, Birth Consultant

Birth - Baby - Beyond

About  Kitty

I'm a wife and mum of two. I live deep in the Kilkenny countryside. I am a passionate birth and breastfeeding advocate. I work as a birth and postpartum doula, rehabilitative and general nurse.


I am an IBCLC certified lactation consultant, working and teaching mums about breastfeeding and the problems that may arise and how to surmount them in the Leinster region. I am also a qualified HypnoBirthing coach which I teach as a powerful tool to help women in labor. 


I teach ante-natal classes to help women and their partners in becoming educated and empowered for their positive birth experience.


I cover the entire Leinster region working both privately in your home and in my clinic based in Kilkenny.
