Ana Pires

Originally from Brazil, I’ve lived in Dublin since 2008. I graduated and worked as a Business Administrator in Brazil. I’ve also graduated in Computer Science in Dublin where I work in the technology industry, supporting clients.


Just before the referendum of 2018, I felt a strong need to pray for women facing pregnancy crises and their supportive organizations. I never thought I’d be called to work to make such an organization alive. Since I’ve joined Zoe I’ve as well walked a path of Zoe’s first client myself as I began to treat my own post abortion trauma. I work with Zoe to build a community hub where women facing uncertainty around being pregnant can be supported, respected, and cared for. 


My desire is that these women feel they have a safe community to share their situations. I love that I work with an organization that will train and equip volunteers to support others without judgment. I have lived without shame and guilt following my abortion since the day I decided to seek help.
