Developments in maternity care in the midlands


The Midland Regional Hospital Portlaoise Maternity Services has announced two new developments in maternity care for women of the midlands. A Community Midwifery-Led Clinic and Parentcraft Antenatal Education for expectant mothers have both been launched at The Portlaoise Family Resource Centre, Treo Nua.

Women attending the Midland Regional Hospital Portlaoise are offered a choice of care pathways based on individual needs, clinical needs and best practice. This Midwifery-Led Clinic aims to provide high-quality, safe care for all women, babies and their families that attend the service. Midwives provide up to date evidence-based care and information for women, supporting them throughout pregnancy, preparing them for labour, birth and caring for themselves and their newborn baby in the first few weeks after delivery.
