The mother and infant care scheme provides care to all expectant mothers who are resident in Ireland. All our Doctors provide this service. The Doctor provides an initial examination, if possible before 12 weeks gestation and a further 5 examinations for your first pregnancy and 6 for your second and subsequent pregnancies. These visits are alternated with visits to the maternity unit/ hospital.
After the birth the Doctor or Nurse will examine the baby at 2 weeks and both the mother and baby at 6 weeks.
This service is provided free of charge.
If you can’t make your appointment or don’t need it any more, please cancel and free the appointment for someone who may really need it.
