about me

"I am passionate about supporting expectant and new parents on their journey through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum."

I’m Aisling Finnegan. I am a mum of four and I live with my family in the Kildare/Dublin area. I am a birth & Postpartum Doula and a childbirth educator. I am co-founder of birthbox.ie, a brand new online store for labour and birth where we sell labour preparation packages, Maternity TENS machines, birth balls and more!

I am passionate about supporting expectant and new parents on their journey through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. I offer group and private antenatal classes and postpartum doula support in your home. My next group workshop is in Barberstown Castle, Straffan, Co.Kildare on Saturday April 27th.

Each family I work with is unique and so my support is tailored to meet the individual needs of every parent or parents. My goal is to help you feel confident, empowered, supported and at ease during the most important moments of your life. 

Having a Doula provides continuous support and encouragement during pregnancy and birth and is shown to help you have a more positive birthing experience.

‘Prepare for Birth & Postpartum’ Antenatal Workshop with Aisling Finnegan and Louise Grant

We have created a unique Doula led antenatal class for expectant parents at Barberstown Castle. We believe that preparing for postpartum is JUST AS IMPORTANT as preparing for birth, and our workshop covers everything from birth to postpartum in a fun and engaging way. Our goal is to empower expectant parents to trust their bodies, their choices, their boundaries, and their decisions. Education and preparation are key to a positive birth and postpartum experience, and our workshop is the perfect way to get started on that journey. So, if you’re looking for a supportive, inclusive, and fun antenatal class experience, we would love to welcome you to our small, intimate group at Barberstown Castle.

Price is €190 for two people including refreshments and lunch, so bring along your partner or support person to our one day antenatal class.

"From the moment Aisling walked through our door on the very first day everything changed. She is so warm and she did everything to help make life easier. She was there for me when I needed to talk to someone about my birth and my feelings. She has such a lovely way about her and cared for our baby so well while we rested , slept and even got out for lunch alone. Thank you Aisling for always being so supportive and kind hearted, and for really minding not just the baby but us parents too!!"

"Nothing can quite prepare you for having a newborn. Personally, I found caring for my newborn really difficult after a traumatic birth experience resulting in an emergency c section and back problems. Aisling supported me while I tried to process everything and also offered practical support such as making lunch for us and caring for our baby boy while my husband and I rested. She offered emotional and practical support which helped us to enjoy the challenging postpartum period."
