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.
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. ”
“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.”
“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!”
“Great hospital, with wonderful staff. I had my baby girl there 2 weeks ago and everything was perfect! Was an amazing experience and I highly recommend this hospital! Thank you to all the people that took care of me and my baby girl.”
“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.”
