Summer Safety Tips for Irish Parents

The following press release on Summer Safety Tips for Irish Parents was released yesterday by the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI) and is full of useful information and tips.

Summer has arrived and for all its pleasant pastimes like beach, lake and river visits, barbeques, cycling, and outdoor activities, a hospital near you is seeing the usual seasonal spike in children’s attendance in their A&E department. If you add up the pain of broken bones, the angst of a childhood summer spent in a cast, time taken off work, not to mention medical bills, you’ve got a costly impact on families.

Maternity Options Are Well Overdue

A new survey, printed in today’s Irish Times, shows that Irish women want more options and more input into how they give birth, writes SHEILA WAYMAN 

WOMEN’S UNHAPPINESS at the lack of choice in the type of maternity care offered in Ireland is clearly signalled in a recent survey of mothers who have given birth here over the past five years.


Money Resolutions for the New Year

“New Years resolutions go in one year and out the other”

I don’t know who said that but it’s pretty accurate – especially when it comes to money!  We tend to make grand statements like “this year I’m going to spend less” or “I’m going to run a tighter ship this year” but most people end up back where they started come the end of the year.

Here’s some of our Top Tips for managing your money for 2010: (more…)

How to save €200 on your Health Insurance

A quick tip which can save minimum of €200 on your health insurance:

Most insurers will allow a newborn for free for the first year but if you get the timing right on this you can save on your infants health insurance costs til they are nearly 2 years old! 

If you switch insurers when the baby is almost 12 months old, the new insurer will add the baby to the policy for free for the first year of the policy. Once the child is less than 1 year old when you take out the policy, there’s no charge for year 1! You will only start paying for baby when the policy renews the following year.  I have done this for quite a few clients recently switching to Hibernian Aviva – it definitely works!
