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

The Cork TPSP has moved some of its work online to support you so that you can meet other young parents in the same situation as yourself. There will be time for a chat as well as information, advice and support for you and your baby. If you would like to join the OMG group, Cork TPSP would love to hear from you.
