|Here is a short selection of testimonials from attendees of our antenatal classes and individuals who have received private consultations.
"Last Saturday, my husband and I attended an all-in-one day course run by mother and midwife Doreen Buckley. And with all my guff, I am really glad I did. It was amazing. She was amazing." It was the most enlightening, empowering lecture that I have attended in my life. I loved every minute of it."

I have been meaning to drop you a line for a few weeks now but our new born has been keeping us busy!
My husband and I attended your December antenatal course in the Clarion Hotel and really enjoyed it and have been raving about it since. You thought us some things that we will never forget and really prepared us for D-Day and beyond (well as much as can be!). We were adamant not to be one of those couples arriving into hospital not being dilated and maybe we took what you said too literally as our little bundle (Abigail) arrived less than 2 hours of us getting to Holles St on 20 Dec!
Anyway we just wanted to say thank you for all the valuable advice and material, we were delighted with the lessons learnt and how to approach things and a number of my friends will be booking with you for later this year after hearing all our quotes from you!

"Hi Doreen, I attended one of your classes back in April and just want to say thank you - had a fab baby boy in June and have to say - your class rocked - I felt completely in control and totally confident and safe. Best part was walking into the hospital saying "my contractions are ten mins apart and one minute long" They laughed and said Doreen Buckley - great start! - so thank you."
“Doreen Buckley's course was nothing short of excellent and easily the most worthwhile 8 hours I have spent in a long time. I think what I liked most about it all (apart from being provided with the simplified wealth of information) was Doreen's unbiased approach and her allowing for choice in practically every aspect of the birth and baby care process. There were no lectures on how ‘breast is best’. She encourages all couples to feel confident about relying on their instincts and advises them not to be afraid to seek medical advice or ask questions whenever the need to.”

“It (Baby on Board programme 2007) also showed the exquisite expertise of the nursing profession in Doreen Buckley and the importance of this support for parents.”
Marie Murray, The Irish Times
“Congraulations on the programme (Baby On Board) last night. Doreen seemed like a very nice person. I had meant to attend my antenatal class with her last June but my little princess arrived early. Even so Doreen was very supportive to me over the phone at the time.”
“THANK YOU SO MUCH - I really was in a rough place at the time I met you and whilst we do have days where her teacher says she has lashed out at some kid - they are now only occasional and we are being very consistent on denying planned treats/play dates if it occurs to the point that she knows very well that her negative actions have consequences.”
“Doreen, you should write that book anyway... your tips have turned things around for us... when I saw you, I thought I was in for years and years of a difficult child... now I feel better equipped to handle her and know what to do when she is in the midst of her tantrums (which have dramatically reduced).”
“Your class was upbeat entertaining informative, chatty and direct – just what Mum’s-to –be need. Your passion for childbirth and babies is infectious. My partner, who wondered whether he should attend (and thought it might be like a pre marriage course), came anyway and could not stop telling his male friends about the day afterwards. We are now looking forward, in a positive confident way, to being parents, and knowing that we can come to you for baby-coaching in the first year is very reassuring should the need arise.”
