The Neonatal Centre

Neonatal Centre

Thorough hand washing is essential for all upon entering the Neonatal Centre

While your baby is in the Neonatal Centre, you may use your own baby clothes, sheets and blankets if you wish. However, the hospital cannot guarantee the return of the garments, even though we will do our best to try to. Clothes for baby must be taken home each day for laundering. Limited accommodation is available for parents wishing to stay overnight if they have a very sick baby, or for a mother who is breastfeeding and is no longer an in-patient.


The Coombe Women & Infants University Hospital is a teaching hospital. On-going education in the Neonatal Centre includes courses in Special and Intensive Nursing Care of the Newborn and the American Academy of Pediatrics Neonatal Resuscitation Programme. Medical students from Trinity College Dublin, the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and University College Dublin spend part of their obstetric rotation in the Neonatal Centre.
