If you choose to be a Semi-private patient you will be seen by the same Obstetrician for most of your visits other than when the Obstetrician is on leave or tending to an emergency. Visits will alternate with your GP under the combined care scheme and your GP will see you for your six week postnatal check up unless you have been requested to attend the hospital.
If you are admitted to hospital before labour your care will be under the supervision of the Obstetrician on duty that day. Similarly, your care in labour and also in the postnatal period will be under the supervision of the Obstetrician on duty that day.
Please try and book early if you have a particular consultant you wish to see to avoid disappointment. Below is the list of Consultants and the days they attend the clinic; all Semi-private clinics are held in the afternoon apart from Friday when the clinic takes place in the morning. Below is an example of the usual times your are seen but this may change.
12-14 wks gestation: you will have an initial booking with a Midwife who takes your booking bloods and medical history and does an ultrasound scan; this takes place Monday – Thursday from 08.30 to 11.00hrs.
16-18 weeks gestation: you will be seen by a Consultant.
20-22 weeks gestation: Your 'Big Scan' will take place in Merrion Fetal Health (included in your fees).
24 weeks gestation: GP visit.
28 weeks gestation: Consultant visit.
Your visits then alternate between your GP and your Consultant.
You are liable for all fees and charges as a semi-private patient so please check with your Health Insurance Providor to ensure you are covered for all costs.
