Meet Daire

EDUCATION + BACKGROUND

Daire (they/them) is a white genderqueer person living and providing services in Philadelphia, PA / Lenape land. Daire is a licensed massage therapist and a full-spectrum birth and abortion doula. The bodywork and care-taking that they love to do is based heavily on their passions for reproductive justice, community, future-building, and accessibility. Daire believes that everyone deserves access to care and touch, and that our healing is collective and intertwined. Through their  bodywork, they provide a nurturing space for people who are, have been, or wish to be pregnant, LGBTQ+ folks, people with chronic pains, digestive issues, and immunocompromised people.

In their free time, Daire enjoys making ceramics, sewing, cooking, growing food for themself and their community, studying herbal medicine, reading, and going for walks.
