Looking for hospital

Postby Dawn266 » Fri Mar 24, 2017 5:25 pm

Hello, I am pregnant with my 3rd. Had the 1st in England lovely hospital.
Had my second in rotunda, it was like it was still in the dark ages.
Thankfully I have health insurance and go go private this time. So my question is which is better for private care. Rotunda or our lady of Lourdes Drogheda I'm in between both. I have read the story's over the years about Drogheda but had my own bad experience in rotunda.

Hi Dawn, I've no history with either hospital but the fact that you are going private this time changes this alot as you will receive the best care from the private clinic. I do know of women who have gone private in rotunda and these women would be fussy and never once have I heard them say anything bad.. The Lourdes I have heard good and bad things about, but if I was paying for private I'd opt for Rotunda as that is a maternity hospital, Lourdes is not. So in the event that something might be wrong with you or your baby (fx'd nothing would be) but you'd end up getting transferred to one of the maternity hospitals anyway ie Holles street or Rotunda, cause Lourdes do not specialise in that. I hope this helps.
