Around 10% of babies will require admission to the neonatal unit. A large number of our patients are born less than 32 weeks gestation and weigh less than 1500 grams. Small premature babies (born before 34 weeks gestation) and sick bigger babies will be admitted to the neonatal unit for observation, treatment and ongoing care.
Rotunda Hospital has published a booklet on the N.I.C.U. It is written especially for parents with preterm babies.
These are some of the common questions that have been asked by women who are worried because of the recent Cervical Check controversy. We appreciate that the current, almost daily media attention related to the cancer audit has caused a significant degree of anxiety and concern for our patients who have attended the colposcopy clinic. If you have specific concerns, please phone the clinic and we will discuss your concerns. However, we have had such a high number of calls over the last three months with general patient concerns and queries that it is now negatively impacting on our ability to provide efficient service to high risk patients who urgently need to access our regular colposcopy service.
Before calling the clinic, we would be grateful if you could review the FAQs below as it is possible that you may find an answer to your particular query.
If you are worried about a smear result, but have not attended the Rotunda Colposcopy Clinic, please call the CervicalCheck Helpline 1800 45 45 55 or visit the Cervical Check website
SATU is located at the Rotunda Hospital, and the new examination suite is in the hospital’s Colposcopy Unit. There are separate private areas for interviews with the patient, physical and forensic examination as well as bathroom and shower facilities.
Have to say great hospital staff are great, food is lovely. Had my baby girl there and two boys. I recommend anyone to have a baby there, they’ve always been great to me.CiaraAlways been great to me
Nik from Spain delivered our baby Tara yesterday. They were all just so amazing, supportive, calming, professional, and nice to be around. I was contracting for 36 hours and felt so very happy to be there. Not a minute that I wished I was at home for whatever reason. Midwives were amazing! All of them from start to the end. Very grateful.KikiMidwives were amazing!
I cannot recommend this hospital and its staff highly enough. From the empathetic but honest manner in which they helped my husband and I deal with the heartbreak of three miscarriages to the care and reassurance they provided throughout the course of two subsequent successful pregnancies, I can honestly say that the staff are angels in disguise. You will not receive better ante/ post natal care anywhere!TrishAngels in disguise

Visited the Rotunda for an elective day case procedure and I have to say I couldn't fault them! From the admitting nurse to the anaesthetist they were amazing! They took my fears seriously and did everything they could. Special mention to Gynae nurses Mikey, Michelle and Ellen. Thank you so much for your kindness, hopefully will be back for a happier event.Sarah AnneThey took my fears seriously
I was exceptionally happy with the care I received from all concerned. Everyone was kind, professional, caring and gave me time to ask questions. This is my 4th Rotunda stay and all stays have been equally excellent in care terms and in terms of kindness shown. Very well done.Rotunda MumEveryone was kind
My experiences in the Rotunda have always been excellent. The Rotunda is fortunate to attract such a high calibre of people to work in this noble profession. The level of professional care that I received exceeded my expectations. I very much admired and respected the dedication and hard work of the people who helped to birth my children and care for me after.Rotunda MumA noble profession
I was given amazing care from all the members of staff as well as all the amazing supportive midwives and doctors from the beginning we walked through the door. Much appreciated. Keep up the amazing job.Rotunda MumI was given amazing care
Every person I encountered during my stay from midwives, doctors, food staff, cleaning staff were all extremely friendly, polite and accommodated my every need. The theatre staff along with my doctor on the day of my section were also fantastic. A huge thank you to all the day and night midwives that looked after my son and I. They are all a credit to this hospital.Rotunda MumA credit to this hospital

It would be wrong to leave without writing to tell you how much I have enjoyed the amazing food I received during my two week stint here. I know it's unusual to like hospital food and believe me, I can be fussy enough but I honestly couldn't have had nicer, healthier and tastier meals anywhere and they were something to look forward to when the days got long! And it wasn't just me who liked it, the other girls loved it too! What's more, the catering staff were all so lovely and friendly and served everything with a smile! Three cheers for y'all and thank you!SineadSomething to look forward to
