Hi, I’m Naomi, and I love all things natural, hence the name ‘Naturals by Naomi’. Be it natural parenting, natural placenta remedies or natural products; you will find all on this site.
Where do I begin………………… I’m a mum of four, in my teens or nearly there. With a background in Childcare and Education and employed as a Community Mother for nearly 10 years – running local parent, baby and toddler groups, Facilitating parenting programs and supporting new mums in the community. This is where I found the love of supporting families with new babies and I love every minute of it! Through here, I got to train as a Baby Massage & Reflexology Instructor, Incredible Years Baby and Toddler Parenting Programme Facilitator, Mellow Bumps Facilitator, and completed a HSE Weaning Programme and facilitated weekly classes in these. I love that I have these additional skills to support the families I work with now as a Postpartum Doula, for more info see the Post Partum services page
During my Baby Massage Instructor training, I discovered Placenta Encapsulation and Remedies (my trainer was a specialist), I hung on her every word as she explained the service she provides. I was amazed!! Feeling that I would have benefited greatly from Placenta Remedies, I decided that I would love to provide Placenta Encapsulation to pregnant women in Limerick, Kilkenny, Tipperary, Laois and surrounding areas. That night I went home and started on my journey to becoming a Placenta Remedies Specialist, completing certification in December 2015. For more information on Placenta Encapsulation and Remedies, see here.
In 2019 I Met a Doula and delved into the world of birth and Postpartum doulas, completing training with Pro-Doula in Postpartum Doula and Infant feeding Specialist. And this is where you find me now, working full time as a Placenta Specialist and Postpartum Doula, covering Limerick, Tipperary, Kilkenny, Laois and parts of Galway or Clare sometimes. (To read the training I underwent and the qualifications I have earned you can click here.)
All of my kids suffered from baby eczema, but one in particular never grew out of it and it didn’t matter which product I bought or how much money I spent, I just could not find anything that would clear it up. So I invested in training in London in 2016 so that I could make my own cosmetics to try and heal her skin. This is where the Natural cosmetics in our Postpartum Care Products page were born. I only use natural ingredients – organic where ever possible to make all our products.
I first developed and adjusted the baby balm recipe until I was really happy with the results, she is now 11 and we use it on just about every ailment in the house, as its made from natural organic ingredients with no essential oils it can be used straight from birth on baby or mum, as a barrier or to heal. From there I took my time developing more products, all for the purpose of natural healing on mum or baby (or any member of the family).
POSTPARTUM CARE PRODUCTS
I then decided to start supplying other products that are needed in the postpartum period, that would also promote natural healing. These products have been tried and tested, by myself, friends, and clients and we would only supply them to you with the assurance that you too will find that they will aid in your recovery after birth, check out our shop for all our wonderful products.
