The idea for uGlow came when a friend of founder, Elaine Doheny from Waterford, had her first baby. She was sleep deprived, emotional and had first time mum nerves. She wanted to feel herself again without leaving her baby and wasn’t mentally prepared to bring her baby with her.“I’d love someone to come to the house and give me a blowdry, just 30 minutes for me”. This reminded Elaine of her own mother’s situation, as primary carer for her grandmother, Elaine’s mum found it hard to leave the house with peace of mind.
Wouldn’t it be so much easier if the pampering could come to them both in a space where they are at ease and at a time that suits their schedule? uGlow is was created to be a solution for people looking to fit wellness into their busy schedules while also giving wellness service providers a platform to grow their business and reach a new audience.
