Welcome to my new Pregnancy Coaching website

Eithna Coen

My name is Eithna Coen and I live in Kilkenny, Ireland. As well as being a coach, I am also a midwife of 25 years and have extensive experience working with women and their partners during pregnancy and childbirth. I use this experience to underpin and intuitively support my pregnancy coaching practice.

Being pregnant is a joyous and sometimes anxious time. In all parents’ lives it is a time of change. From the moment you know you are pregnant, you are expected to make decisions, choices, take advice (everybody has an opinion), and wade through tonnes of information. For some parents you have to change what you eat, how you sleep, take up exercise, get rest, and change you socializing habits.

You learn lots of things about yourself, what makes you feel good, discover what you like and don’t like, what you fear, what worries you and what concerns you. You do all this, earn a living and perhaps parent other children. A lot of the time you are being told what is good for you and what you should do or not do.

Naturally, you want to prepare, you want your pregnancy to go well, you want your birthing experience to be the best it can be, you want to begin parenthood in the best way.

Pregnancy coaching provides you with a ‘thinking space’ where you can prepare, feel safe, be courageous in what it is YOU really want or need or feel to make childbirth a fulfilling and satisfactory experience. Pregnancy coaching is built on the principle that within you are all the answers and solutions to whatever it is you need and want. Pregnancy coaching will assist you in finding those answers and solutions through addressing your whole life, not just your pregnancy.
