I want to thank Rosie Murtagh and the other lactation consultants in the breastfeeding support clinic for the invaluable support they provided after my son was born. We had a lot of difficulty with low milk supply and mastitis and I don't believe I would have been able to continue feeding without their support. They provided excellent advice and enabled me to continue feeding my son for 1 year with formula supplementation. The weekly clinic is a fantastic resource and it made all the difference to us.
I would like to thank amazing midwife Christine McNamara for professionalism dedication and encouragement. Now when I think back- I have to say it was an amazing birthing experience. Thanks to all Midwifes working in NMH- it’s amazing to be surrounded by people who love their jobs
I attended Dr Myra Fitzpatrick’s clinic as I had suffered a third degree tear on my last pregnancy and am currently pregnant again. I met on the day of the appointment the most kind and gentle advanced midwife practitioner, Linda Kelly. She was so professional and put me right at ease. Dr Fitzpatrick also attended part of the appointment and was just as professional and kind in her approach. All details were explained to me and I left feeling reassured, fully informed and fully respected. It was not the most enjoyable of examinations but I was put at ease and my consent was sought every step of the way. Absolutely fantastic service that I cannot commend highly enough. This is the care and service that other clinics should aspire to provide. Just want to acknowledge the respectful and caring service I received.
I had a consultation at the semi-private day unit in the National Maternity Hospital. Firstly, I have to commend all staff that I was met with today, being greeted at the reception area to midwives in the day unit. All personnel were very professional, courteous and went above and beyond. In particular, two midwives that I personally dealt with, a Ms. Jennifer Chaney and Ms. Jacinta Byrne. It is clearly evident that both midwives are very passionate about their work, caring towards patients and put any concerns I had to rest. Pregnancy can be a concerning time for most women. The midwives are an invaluable asset to the National Maternity Hospital, Holles Street. It is a very difficult time for all those working on front line services especially those personnel working in the maternity hospital. Acknowledgement given to the staff and work efforts. Above and beyond on all my visits to the National Maternity Hospital.
