Over Heaven's Hill is a Lifestyle Blog which has seen a few revolutions since its inception in 2016. What began as a parenting blog, morphed into a lifestyle, health and wellness blog with parenting and family mingled in between. I'm Geraldine. I'm Momma Bear to two beautiful girls, who encouraged me to take a leap of faith. I quit my 12 year career as a Medical Librarian, in 2018, to work from home and look after our daughters. What began as a dream morphed into a reality. I now work as a Freelance Writer, writing for national newspapers, magazines, websites and blogs, as well as this here little blog. I am also a Freelance Media Consultant and Content Creator, managing social media accounts for those who are time poor but information rich.

“Three in a row and the little one said…!” Finding out that I can now happily smoosh myself in between our two kids in the back seat of our car has been a revelation. Whenever we needed that extra seat to collect a friend or Nanna, it meant bringing two cars. But recently we were […]

Found out last week I’ve been included on The 100 Most Inspiring Women of Ireland List of 2019 as part of The Graham Norton Gin Inspiring Awards 2019. Pretty chuffed. Its always nice to be recognised for your work especially when you freelance and don’t have a boss to thank you, congratulate you or praise you for […]

“The fourth trimester meant recovering and understanding more than the physical labour of birth and focusing on the emotional labour which is the ebb and flow of a new maternal life.” My words, from an article I wrote for the Irish Times in July.  “Parenthood will change you. It’s almost an affliction that rewires the […]

Life has a funny way of changing your perspective on things. For us, the idea of our family tree spreading didn’t start with that giggle and jiggle under the sheets. The drawn-out two-year conversation about whether it was the right time to start a family, hung like a cloud over us as we thrashed out […]

It’s possible I should start off by the saying that you should really enjoy the baby making sessions because there may come a time when squeezing in more than a thirty second smooch becomes tedious. But that may put you off the idea of having kids and what would be the point of that. Let […]

It’s never too late to go back to school and continue your education. That being said, having to study whilst juggling the role of a parent can make it a lot more challenging. I’ve been tempted, over the years, to take on an online course but I will admit, the commitment to a two or […]
