Support during Covid 19
 
Lockdown can be a very difficult and isolating time if you are a young parent. The Cork TPSP has moved some of its work online to support you. There are two Groups where you can meet young parents with similar experiences to yourself. There will be time for a chat as well as information, advice and support for yourself and your baby.
If you would like to join one or both of these Groups the Cork TPSP would love to hear from you.

Listen to Emily Egan
Hi, my name is Emily Egan. Thanks for listening to my music! Feel free to share. I am a single mom living in West Cork with my amazing family and my beautiful two-year-old daughter Ivy. When I was pregnant with Ivy, I availed of the Teen Parent Support Programme after being told about it by a social worker in the CUMH. Trish was extremely helpful and helped me to feel a lot calmer about the situation. Since then, the programme has continued to support me, and I am so grateful. Being a young mom is hard, and anyone experiencing the scary prospect of becoming a parent at a young age should not be afraid to ask for help
