We moved to the Sligo area with a 3 week old baby last year. My older son was not even two yet. With no family or friends in the area to call on, and with my husband starting a new job immediately when we moved, I was understandably nervous about how I’d cope. Before we moved I got in touch with Michelle. She was just the person I needed to talk to- so reassuring. I knew that if I needed help I could call on her. All the midwives asked what support I had lined up and they were so impressed when I told them about Mamogs. The service is unique. When we moved Michelle came over several afternoons to help me out. In the end my newborn was a very easy
baby so I did not need to call on Michelle as much as I thought I might, but knowing I could, and her being open to this meant so much to me. When Michelle came I knew she’d just get stuck in wherever necessary. She primarily minded the baby while I spent some precious time doing the simple things with my toddler that I missed so much
being so busy with the baby.
After what seemed like a few years but was only a few months myself and my husband got into a bit of a rhythm and felt up to going out. For our first few evenings out we left with full confidence in Michelle to mind our precious tiny baby (and of course precious toddler!), knowing she wouldn’t be daunted even if they both woke up. Michelle documented everything for us and showed us all her certificates and qualifications. She was so professional.
I would highly recommend Michelle to any new mum and dads for some much needed extra support.Cathy
Michelle came to my aid on many occasions during and after my second pregnancy. Beforehand she let me know about how she works and other supports out there. After, she was available by text or phone on the ward when i was struggling with feeding and later, during my daughter’s spells of hourly night time waking when i thought i was going to lose the plot with exhaustion. Michelle is an ocean of calm, sensitive, discrete support and help. There are very few people i would trust with my infant daughter but Michelle’s skill and love of babies won us both over and i happily waved them off on their walks while i took time to rest, eat, sleep, regain perspective and relax. When my husband as a treat wanted to get me a massage, i said no, I’ll have morning with Michelle instead please!! We are all truly grateful to her and have the comfort of knowing her expertise is just a text away! Heartfelt thanks Michelle, from all four of us.Frank Aoife Paddy and Rosie!!
We chose Michelle to take care of our first son as she came across from the inset to have the children’s best interests at heart having a very friendly, caring and patient attitude. Michelle has proved herself to be all this and more in the four and a half years she has taken care of our three boys. She has built up a good relationship with us and I know our boys are very fond of her. She is reliable, flexible and approachable. We shall take pride that you have assisted us in the early upbringing of our boys, maintaining standards that have brought them to be the lovely little men they are fast becoming. We are eternally grateful.Jarlath and Caroline
Michelle is one of the kindest people I know! The only regret I have is that I didn’t contact her sooner! One of my husband’s workmates told him about Mamogs just before we had our daughter, and he picked up a Mamogs flier from the office (I think ). I pinned it on our small notice board and didn’t look at it again until we came back from a peadiatric first aid class. After meeting Michelle there, I knew she would be the best choice to look after our little one. I couldn’t have been more correct . The second day she came over to mind our daughter, my heart melted when my little one was visibly delighted to see her and put out her hands for Michelle… I could go on and on writing, but ultimately what I’m trying to say is that if I had to do it again, I would contact Michelle much earlier than I hadRosaria Kunda Marron
Mamogs is a fabulous service that allowed me the peace of mind to have ‘my time’ as a new mom. Michelle is extremely professional , the care she provides my little girl is fantastic and her experience and attention ensure my baby’s continuous changing needs are always met. I can’t recommend Mamogs enough, I never have to worry when my little girl is in Michelle’s care. Thanks Michelle.Hannah's Mum
5 stars are not enough for Michelle! A wee gem and a comfort to have in your home minding your precious baby! And a great singer! The gift of time is priceless to new moms and dads. The knowledge that the carer of baby is highly qualified , a first aider, Garda vetted and a lovely person is very easing on the soul when you need a little me time. Happy mommy = happy baby and vice versa. Best of luck Michelle you impressed me and I would recommend you anytime.Roisin
Mamogs = ME. I have been Mamoged and feel me againCaroline
Michelle is a natural with children. Her warm, kind and caring personality meant that my son loved her and really enjoyed being with her. Michelle went to great effort over and above what I expected to ensure my son was happy and content in her care and was always very conscious of respecting how we liked to do things as parents. I always felt happy knowing that my child was in very capable hands. I would really recommend Michelle to anyone needing a reliable, capable and professional childminderNicola Scott
