Maternity Information Pack

The purpose of this information pack is to give pregnant women and their partners information about pregnancy, labour and birth, and the care of you and your baby immediately after birth. It explains why so many women choose the Rotunda Hospital as their ‘maternity hospital of choice’.

We realise that each pregnancy is unique and that women need information on all the various types of care they can have. We hope that this pack gives you all the information you need and we would be happy to get any feedback or comments from you.


‘Rotundapp’ is the first app of its kind to be launched by an Irish maternity hospital. It focuses on all aspects of pregnancy care, including a specialist neonatal information pack for parents of babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

‘The ‘Rotundapp’ provides medically accurate information to women from preconception through to 6 weeks postpartum and enables you to have immediate access to information and an instant connection to advice from medical experts.
