25 Mar Mothers Day Competition 31st March 2019
Women – Joining together, making each other stronger
To celebrate Mothers Day we have an amazing prize to give away. A group of five professional women based in Drogheda who are all passionate about women’s health have got together to for a wonderful giveaway. Having learned so much from each other and benefited from each other’s wisdom and skills, we have now come together to be able to share our knowledge and areas of expertise to support other women in achieving better health, a greater sense of wellness, and ultimately happiness in their lives. Together we are stronger – together we achieve so much more!
Yvonne Brady – Chartered Engineer , Designer & Manufacturer.
Yvonne wanting to start exercising again, took up running soon after having her third baby, and like many women found that leaking a bit of urine was an embarrassing side effect. However, initially thinking she was the only woman in the world that had this issue, she felt totally isolated, embarrassed and indeed mortified! Nonetheless, Yvonne is an engineer, and got to thinking about how she could solve this problem…She reckoned that millions of women around the world were causing extreme damage to their deep core muscles by pounding up and down the roads and placing excessive strain on their core muscles. Therefore, Yvonne set about creating technology in a revolutionary activewear product that would optimise the pelvic floor and keep women safe whilst they train – and EVB Sport was born! EVB Sport is now 6 years old and selling across the globe.
These amazing products are recommended by 1000’s of pelvic health practitioners across the world from maternity hospitals to gynaecological clinics to independent GP and physiotherapy clinics. Knowing they are preventing injury to women as they exercise keeps Yvonne and the EVB Sport Team motivated and energised. They are committed to ensuring pelvic health gets the awareness it needs and continue to provide support garments that will keep women doing what they were born to do!

Ciara Ryan – Nutritional Therapist
Ciara loves nutrition and food and is passionate about the real power of nutritional therapy in helping with both prevention of illness, as well as supporting the body through times of sickness and poor health. Ciara has always had an interest in nutrition but admits she didn’t always know how to nourish herself properly – a common complaint with so much different information coming at us today! Having suffered quite a bit in her 20s with fatigue and digestive complaints, and fluctuating weight, she’s happy to say that now in her 40s, she’s turned it around with what she calls a ‘living in the real world’ wholefood diet.
With Ciara’s guidance, knowledge and caring nature, her clients have also experienced really wonderful improvements and benefits regarding their diet, relationship with food and overall mental and physical health. Ciara supports and empowers each client to take control of their own health and enjoys helping them reach their wellness goals whether that be a life free from ill health, resolving ongoing digestive issues, waking each morning feeling healthy and energised or to make PMT, pains and aches, cravings or mood swings a thing of the past.

Karen O’Brien – Meditation and Mindfulness Coach
Karen is one of life’s angels and always has the right thing to say at the right time – coupled with a wonderful sense of resilience as well as a wicked sense of humour, Karen is definitely someone who will brighten your day. Asking, “Who has time to be staring at the back of their eyelids and being present in the moment?”…her unbridled response is, ”Hell, yesss – I do!”
Karen tells us that meditation is a magical portal to a life free from perfectionism, and beating yourself up. We definitely want lots of that medicine! Meditation is simply a technique you use to train your mind to be mindful when you need it the most, like when you’re about to lose your sh*t. The experience of peace follows you relentlessly throughout your day. Doesn’t that sound amazing? And it’s yours if you want it, even in those moments when your little treasure is having a tantrum that would put Sponge Bob Square Pants to shame!
Like most good things in life, enlisting a professional gets you better results. Karen is there to guide you so you aren’t writing to-do lists on the back of those eyelids, or because you feel you’re too busy and freaked out to enter that magical state of subliminal calm.
Karen also reminds us, that the flight attendants have it right, as when flying to sun kissed shores, they tell us to apply our own oxygen mask first. Take the time to pause, reflect and respond – Karen is the perfect person to help you along the way.
