For those couples having difficulty conceiving, we provide initial testing and advice, and help couples prepare for fertility treatments when needed.
We specialise in antenatal care! We provide the free Mother and Infant Scheme, but also carry out ultrasound scanning from 6 weeks onwards. Dads are welcome at these scans and antenatal visits, and have been throughout the Covid pandemic. We provide the flu and whooping cough vaccines, and offer non-invasive pre-natal testing for Downs and other trisomies at a manageable cost at 10 weeks of pregnancy.
After 20 weeks, most couples attend Caitriona O’Sullivan for their antenatal visits. She is a midwife and experienced neonatal nurse, and helps you prepare for baby. Caitriona is also very experienced with supporting breast-feeding, and we urge all couples to get in touch as soon as they come home to access her advice and help.
We are especially concerned with the ‘epidemic’ of tongue tie and the interaction between some midwives including some hospital based lactation consultants, and doctors providing surgical procedures for very large numbers of newborns. We urge all families to wait and discuss the procedure with the GP at the baby’s 2 week check, as we feel most of these procedures are not necessary.
