Prepare for your hospital stay
While you are receiving care in the hospital, we have a number of specialist staff and teams who are available to provide you with additional help, support and advice to complement the care and treatment you are already receiving.
The medical social work (MSW) team provides a confidential support and counselling service to all women and families attending the hospital for maternity, gynaecology and paediatric care.
They can help you to access practical supports and they have up-to-date information on parent support groups, community services and welfare entitlements and benefits.
The department’s aim is to provide excellent patient centred, innovative and evidenced based care in the physiotherapy management of maternity, gynaecological and paediatric conditions.
The importance of a good diet throughout life is well known.
A healthy, balanced diet is particularly important before a woman becomes pregnant and throughout her pregnancy.
Good nutrition in the antenatal and postnatal period has both immediate and significant long-term health benefits for both mother and baby.
The Rotunda realises the importance of helping and supporting parents around the time their baby dies.
We have a team of staff available and willing to help families to get through such a difficult time in their lives.
The bereavement support midwife, chaplain, bereavement social worker and staff involved in caring for these mothers and babies work very closely together.
