Delivery Suite

The completion of an 18 month capital development project has resulted in the most modern Delivery Suite in the State. For you as a prospective parent, this means that you will have your own single en-suite room in which to labour and give birth in.

Each room has been designed and tastefully decorated.Your experience of labour and birth will be much improved by the large shower as well as space in which to use items such as a birthing ball or mat, if the delivery bed is not for you.

Each room is designed and equipped to provide everything for you if you need an epidural, or need to have your labour assisted with an oxytocic drip, or should  baby require any assistance immediately after birth.

In addition, we have a suite with the only birthing pool in the three Dublin maternity hospitals. You can check whether you meet the criteria to use the birthing pool here. Once you meet the criteria, you can learn more about using the birthing pool here

We encourage low risk mothers who would like the benefits  of relaxing in warm water as a means of coping with contractions during labour to ask about using the pool during labour. You will be able to leave the pool when you are ready to give birth, and stay in the same room until baby is born. Alternatively, you may wish to remain in the pool to give birth.

In the event you need a Caesarean Section, we have a state of the art Theatre Suite and High Dependency rooms for any woman who may develop complications or require extra monitoring either before or after the birth of her baby. We also have a dedicated room for women with other severe conditions of general health, or who need to be isolated.
