Women booking privately with a consultant obstetrician will have their antenatal care provided in the Rotunda Private Clinics.
You will see where possible your consultant at each hospital antenatal visit and combined antenatal care with your GP will be discussed where appropriate. When you are admitted in labour the midwives on the delivery suite will care for you and they will be in regular contact with the consultant. A consultant obstetrician will be available at the time of your baby’s birth or if there are any concerns or complications during labour. Private patients may choose either semi-private accommodation or a private room after the birth.
For further information on the private care option and on the consultant obstetricians offering this service and their fees, please follow this link to the Rotunda Private Clinics website www.rotundaprivate.ie or contact the clinic directly by phoning 01 – 874 2115.
The accommodation cost per night for a single room is €1,000 and €813 per night for a shared room. Most insurance companies will cover:
- 3 nights for a normal delivery from the time of admission to hospital, inclusive of time in the Delivery Suite
- 5 nights for a caesarean section from the time of admission to hospital, inclusive of any time spent in the Delivery Suite
Note – The Garda Medical Aid, ESB Medical Provident Society and the Prison Officers Medical Aid schemes will only cover the semi-private rate for a private room.
Should your baby require admission to the neonatal unit, it will be assumed that you wish your baby to be treated and accommodated on a private basis unless you tell the staff otherwise. Remember to add your new baby to your policy after birth.
You should contact your insurance company before deciding on the care option if you have any concerns about the level of cover they provide. The Rotunda operates a direct payment scheme with the following companies:
- Vhi Healthcare
- Laya Healthcare
- Aviva Health
- Garda Medical Aid
- ESB Medical Provident Society
- Prison Officers Medical Aid Society
Otherwise, payment of all bills is due in full, on discharge from hospital. If you have any queries, please contact:
