/ The Daisy Foundation with Caitriona McKenna

Hello, and Welcome to The Daisy Foundation – Armagh and Dungannon

Hi, I’m Caitriona McKenna, a Perinatal Educator, mother of two and nurse for 11years.

I attended a Daisy workshop with my husband before having our first child, we really enjoyed it and learnt so much. I found the workshop fascinating, as I love everything pregnancy and baby related, so I decided to train and bring The Daisy Foundation to the Armagh and Dungannon area. 

 I am so passionate about supporting and educating women and parents, giving them confidence to make informed choices for their pregnancy, birth and care of their little one. It is often said that it ‘takes a village to raise a child’ – at Daisy classes and workshops we provide an opportunity to meet other local parents/soon-to-be parents, build relationships, share experiences and gain knowledge, but most of all, enjoy the journey together. 

If you have any queries or questions, please don’t hesitate to email me at: caitriona-mckenna@thedaisyfoundation.com
