Meet the Authors of Giving Birth in Ireland

Meet the Authors of Giving Birth in Ireland

An essential read for anyone in Ireland who is pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant, Giving Birth in Ireland is a landmark book.

This Feminist Book Fortnight, meet the authors of Giving Birth in Ireland in an online gathering hosted by Sheelagh na Gig bookshop.

We’ll be chatting about why the Irish Birth Movement decided to publish Giving Birth in Ireland. Authors will share their stories, passing on their knowledge, experience, and inspiration.

Contributors who will be at the event include:

  • Sarah Brennan, a GP with a special interest in women’s health and a medical educator with University of Galway School of Medicine;
  • Sara Devoy, a craniosacral therapist and integrative baby therapist with over 30 years of experience;
  • Su Huschke, mama of two, birth doula, shamanic practitioner, researcher, facilitator, and co-founder of the Irish Birth Movement;
  • Jillian Molloy, who uses her background as a social research scientist to help families explore their fears around birth;
  • Liz McDG [surname name and bio blurb needed]; and
  • Amélie Nyhan, a postpartum doula.

Join us on Friday, 24 May at 8pm on Zoom. Tickets are free and must be booked on Eventbrite at
