Research Interests

Dr Leahy-Warren’s philosophy is that all women, infants and their families should be facilitated to have a positive pregnancy and child birth experience, receiving evidence based care from all healthcare professionals. Improving maternal health during pregnancy directly influences and enhances infant outcomes. Using her clinical and methodological expertise her specific areas of research focus include: (1) Promoting Positive Maternity Experiences for Women, Infants & Partners improving breastfeeding outcomes; (2) Improving Breastfeeding Outcomes; (3) Maternal, Paternal and Infant Perinatal Mental Health; and (4) Parental and Child Health in the Community. Dr Leahy-Warren has over 50 peer review publications and a number of ongoing research projects that strive to enhance maternal, paternal and infant health in Ireland. She has developed a theoretically based social support instrument that is unique in that it is contextualised within infant care practices, which has been used internationally to devise theoretically sound perinatal interventions to facilitate the transition to motherhood.
