Congrats Womble. I am going public in Galway under Dr. Gubara. He is a really lovely man. I met him at my 2nd appointment. And told him that I was a little worried that at my 1st appointment the baby was 10 days behind for the dates. He booked me in for a scan straight away at my next appointment. Could not fault the public service in Galway at all. All the best.

I went public in galway last november and the service was excellent , i was under Dr. O Conner , everyone was realy helpful and i will defineltly go public again (hopefully) , you should bear in mind too that you might not get a private room if the numbers are high when you go into labour,,,

Even though you have only found out that you are pregnant it could be too late to go private. If you go public your GP just sends in a letter to the hospital and the consultant that you will be under is decided by them. Hope this helps.

Hi Womble, I decided to go private in Galway, like you i got a list of numbers and rang them straight away, ( only last week ). A few of them aren't taking on any patients in July, they're prob on hols, but i did manage to get Dr Declan Egan and Fiona Cullinane. The secretary explained i'd be under their combined care. So i just got my GP to write them a letter. I'd do it quickly if you want to go private. :wv

Had O connor first and he was only okay - very much "going through the motions I felt" but still a nice doctor. Went under Morrisson 2nd time around and I think his bedside manner is appauling TBH - even had a chat with the midwives during labour and they didnt have a whole pile of respect for his manner either. Having said that he is the prof and is very well regarded as an OB - that stands for something. This time Im under Fiona Cullinane and all I can say she is a proper sweetheart, such a lovely caring sincere person and IMO has a special interest in not only the baby and pregnancy but in Mum herself. I was only up there today and even to see how she treats the junior docs and midwives is a breath of fresh air up there. As I was having my bloods taken I had 3 midwives telling me how lucky I am to be under her and she is by the far the favourite for both patients and staff alike! However as far as Im aware she doesnt run a private clinic. I have always gone public in Galway - it is an excellent maternity unit. For my own reasons I would personally not go near R Egan with a barge pole - his track record leaves much to be desired. Just my belief Goodluck with the next exciting few months! xx
