Diane Sheehan

PERINATAL MENTOR

I am a Midwife and an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) with an unwavering passion for advocating and supporting women during all four trimesters of bringing a new life into the world.
---
I draw on 30 years of incredible experience gained working in both major Melbourne hospitals, and 14 years in the community as an Enhanced Maternal and Child Health Nurse. My life has been enriched by the diversity of families whom I have had the pleasure of providing education and support. 
---
I have never stopped studying, learning and sharing my new knowledge with other health professionals, Mums and Mums to be and their loved ones.
--- 
Teaching is my joy and life purpose. I light up when facilitating HypnoBirthing classes, prenatal breastfeeding sessions, birth planning sessions and post birth parenting support. Early parenting life rolls so much easier if you plan to undertake some form of preparation before your sweet baby arrives. 
---
I am absolutely delighted to be able to offer you some of my services online. I have heard your despair when you cannot access a face to face appointment with the health professional that you know is the "ONE". That special person who offers what you need but you have no way of meeting up with them in person. 
---
I can promise you that there is no one else out there, like ME. 

And I would be honoured to work with you.

Perinatal means the period of time between late second trimester, around 20 weeks, right up until the end of the first month post birth. Basically, it covers the second, third and fourth trimesters.
---                                                                                 
So much happens within a womens body, mind and spirit during this time. Not just the growth of her precious baby, but the growth and expansion of her mind, intellect, skills, knowledge and emotional intelligence. This is when you really need your very own WISE WOMEN to walk alongside you. One with decades of experience around ALL THINGS NATAL. That is me!!
Absolutely! I would be honoured to work with you in readiness for the birth of your little baby. 
I have supported and shared knowledge with hundreds of Mums just like you. Reach out and we can chat about what you would like to do next. 
You are right, we are definitely in the new age of womens rights around pregnancy and birthing. Social media is flooded with women vocalising and rising up, making their thoughts, opinions, wants and needs heard. What a great time in history to be here. I am thrilled that I am.

A birth plan is not a new idea, I had a birth plan for all three of my birthing experiences, and that was forever ago. 
Plans are just that. They are all your thoughts out loud and scribed in ink, or pixels! Your baby, your birthing, your wants, needs, desires, hopes. It gives you the opportunity to start really thinking about how this life changing experience will play out for you, including plans for events out of your control. Because that's life right? 

Of course it is not set in stone and non negotiable. What it is, is a document that can be shared with your health providers and support people (friends, family, doula)  well in advance so that they have the opportunity to jump on board in supporting you through YOUR experience. Remember, the key word is YOUR experience. 

My offerings include not only a birthing plan. You can also choose a birthing/breastfeeding plan or my signature offering of  the Fourth Trimester Plan. This incorporates planning for pregnancy, birthing, breastfeeding, parenting in the fourth trimester. Who wouldn't welcome the opportunity to map this out?  
Great question. I have done this many times. Any one of my offerings makes a wonderful baby shower, naming day or blessingway gift, for example. My fourth trimester services make a great gift for any Mum to be. Sure beats gro suits and swaddling wraps. I often speak with grandmothers to be who would love to pay for a service for their grandbabies parents. They can see the wisdom of getting support and education BEFORE baby arrives as they have been there themselves.And they know sometimes things are tight financially, so they want to help out in the best way they can. 

I can package up any of my services to fit your needs. Just ask, I am really flexible. 
I promise I am not scary!!!

I have supported thousands and thousands of women just like you over the last three decades. It is what lights me up. I love working with women and their babies. I have heard some amazing stories. Everyone is different.                         

Check out my website. It is a JUDGEMENT FREE ZONE. I will find out what your hopes and dreams are and work with you where you are at. It's not my baby, I have had my babies. My focus is on you and YOUR baby. I am here to share with you all that I know. You get to make the decisions that work for your family. Reach out.  We can chat about what I have that you might find helpful.
