PumpPal

Thank you for visiting!
I am running the Women's Mini Marathon in June and I need your help to launch an idea called PumpPal!

  • What is PumpPal?
PumpPal is an initiative I am launching to support mums in Irish children's hospitals to provide breastmilk for their babies.
It will begin with a 6 month pilot in June 2018 in Our Lady's Children's Hospital, Crumlin. 

  • Why is it called PumpPal?
In children's hospitals, many mums are not permitted to physically breastfeed their babies as they are too unwell. If the mum wishes to provide breastmilk for her baby, a breastpump is usually required. It is extremely challenging to learn how to express breastmilk while also caring for a sick child.
In addition to this, Dublin's children's hospitals care for the most unwell babies from all over Ireland so many of the parents do not have family or a support network nearby. The title of the initiative combines 'Pump' with 'Pal' to focus on the motivation behind it: to provide support to mums.

  • How will your donation be spent?
Your donation will assist me to fund the 6 month pilot, beginning June 2018, in Our Lady's Children's Hospital, Crumlin.
During the pilot, I will be supplying mums who wish to provide breastmilk for their babies with support kits.
Your donation will be spent on items to fill the support kits as pictured in the gallery above:

  • Reusable bag
  • Tupperware container
  • Mug, spoon and porridge sachets
  • Reusable water bottle
  • Travel size toiletries, lip balm, eye mask, ear plugs
  • Photo keyring & small book to encourage bonding with baby 
  • Breast pump cleaning brush & fairy liquid
  • Microwaveable sterilising bag 
  • Advice leaflet on expressing breastmilk 
A donation of €25 will provide an entire support kit for a mum and baby.
Thank you so much for your generosity and support.
