Postnatal Service

There is no routine postnatal dietitian service for mothers or healthy full-term babies or for mothers or babies who have been discharged  from the hospital or who are no longer under the care of a hospital consultant.

After you (your baby) are discharged from the hospital, care is available in the community through your GP. There are community based dietitians available in some areas – check with your GP about a referral.

There are also dietitians who see patients privately.  These dietitians are not linked with the hospital.  If you would like to arrange an appointment with a private dietitian, there is a list of appropriately qualified dietitians available on the Irish Nutrition and Dietetic Institute website.
