A New Family is Born

Letters to the Editor

Sir - As I sit in A&E in the Rotunda hospital (monitoring blood pressure), I am compelled to write to you. With a little time on my hands, baby safe at home with Daddy, I have chance to share our experience.

I and my husband welcomed a healthy baby boy (8lbs 14oz) into the world on November 20 this year. We chose the Rotunda Maternity Hospital as I work in Dublin 1 and could easily make the appointments, a logistical decision that proved to be the best decision we could have made.

From scans, follow ups, expert reassurance, antenatal classes and appointments, everything ran like clockwork. A last-minute scheduled caesarean was planned a day before our due date, as the baby was breech. The care, respect and professionalism shown from every single staff member throughout our time in hospital were outstanding.
