A parent to parent voluntary support charity

About Cuidiú


Cuidiú is Irish for 'help'.  With our 25+ Branches throughout Ireland, 300+ trained volunteers and a further 100+ supporting volunteers, we are proud to have been supporting tens of thousands of parents annually throughout the country for the past 40 years. This is offered via the provision of Antenatal Education, Breastfeeding Support, Parent Support and socially at our Branch and National meets and events.


Our motto is education and support for parenthood.


Our ethos centres on supporting parents with evidence based information about pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding to provide a supportive background to empower parents to make their own decisions that are right for their family.  This Informed Decision Making is at the core of our Breastfeeding and Parent Support models and is what makes our Cuidiú Antenatal Ireland classes different from others.


Check out our Branch Pages to find out more about local events / supports / social media pages specific to your local area.

If you need free breastfeeding support, do call one of our Trained breastfeeding counsellors

Or if you are are having a tough day, our Trained Parent Supporters will listen openly, honestly and without judgement.

See our Antenatal Pages for more info about their classes.
