Cork Children’s Clinic was opened in January 2017 by Frank Kelleher Osteopath and his wife Rose. Frank and Rose have worked together for the last 20 years and during that time have gradually found themselves working more and more with babies and children until they got to a point where it’s only babies and children they see!
Working with babies and children was a very natural progression for us. We have 4 children ourselves, ranging from 24 years old down to 14 years old.
Rose was also a General Nurse and a Midwife and worked in the UK while Frank was doing his Osteopathy degree. Between both of us we have a great understanding of what parents go thru when their little one is experiencing difficulty. Our aim has always been, to give parents information and what’s going on and what they can do on a practical level to help their baby.
Opening Cork Children’s Clinic has been a dream for quite a while. We have moved location quite a few times over the 20 years working in Osteopathy and with each move we learned something new! Our new clinic is designed with babies, children and their parents in mind and we have made the environment as child and parent friendly as possible. There is a lovely relaxed feeling here that has happened naturally. Our Baby Changing and Feeding Room is a little calm oasis and parents love it!
In addition to Paediatric Osteopathy we also offer other services here at the clinic. We have Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Paediatric Dietitian, a Paediatric Audiologist, an Educational Psychologist and Physical Therapy. By offering these additional services we hope to make Cork Children’s Clinic a centre for baby and child based services.
