Hi girls, Does anyone know if it is possible to give birth in a different hospital to the one you go to for check-ups/visits before the pregnancy? I work in Dublin so would ideally like to go to GP and hospital up here during pregnancy but go home (Waterford) to give birth. (In both I would be going public not private.) Is this possible? Any opinions/info would be great. O-O

I dont know but I doubt it. Surely all your files would be in the hospital where you had your visits? And you would have a completely new consultant etc?

I know a girl in work was attending the Rutonda for her visits but her boyfriend was from Nigeria and got deported so she want to be with her mam and dad, she moved down to waterford and had her baby in down there. [url=] [img:6d25sq4v];18;96/st/20090426/dt/5/k/cf9a/preg.png[/img:6d25sq4v] [/url]
