Booking Your Visit
You will be invited to attend a booking clinic where you will see Jo, your Specialist Midwife Sonographer. This is important, as it is necessary to obtain and record your personal and family history. There is no need for a GP referral. Booking will include your first ultrasound scan and a set of bloods will also be taken. Please allow 30 minutes for this appointment.
Your Antenatal Records
Later on in your pregnancy you will be encouraged to carry your own current antenatal record. The advantage of carrying your own record is that, if required to attend your GP and when attending the Women’s Health Group or the Hospital, there is access to a fully updated record of your care.
NB: We strongly suggest that you contact your private health insurer to make sure you are aware of any fees or charges they will not cover, as you will be invoiced if you are not covered. Garda Medical Aid patients, please be aware, your delivery mode fee is not covered by Garda Medical Aid and is a seperate fee.
