Just wanted to post this. As some of you know I have not been having a great pregnancy. BUt I just wanted to say that the treatement I am getting from Mount CArmel is wonderful.
My Doctor, his staff, and all the staff at Mount Carmel are brilliant. I feel like Royality. As much as I am in pain and worried about this baby, they are doing everything to put my mind at ease, and look after me. If any of you are thinking about going there, dont think twice about it.
Just wanted to post this, so may of us are quick to put nagative things down, so I wanted to put a positve thing down.
That's great Jen2!!!
Doesn't it make life so much easier when people are nice to you!!!
My two friends went there too and they just loved it!! They couldn't have said enough good about the place!!
i am almost 35wks and will be having my baby in Mount Carmel too. I dont see my consultant there but had to go in last sunday as i had a bit of a show. I have to agree, i was so happy coming at home the mid-wives are so lovely and really put me at ease. even my hubby couldnt believe the care and attention it got. it seems such a nice calm place to have a baby.
Miki best of luck. You dont have long to do at all. What doc are you under. I go to Gerry Rafferty. I had my DS with him too. When I was there last week, I kept calling it the hotel instead of hospital. DH just laughed at me.
im seeing Dr Dockeray in Charlemont Clinic. I'm really please with him, this is my first baby and everything scares me, he's really nice

My friend recommended dr Dockery also,
Ah that's really nice to hear i always said to Hubby when our time comes that's where i would like to go (appointment wise etc it would be easiest to get to too), i don't know anyone who has had a baby there so that is lovely to hear, thanks for sharing the positives
Hi Jen2, mind if I ask is it much more expensive than private in a public hospital?
No probs thistle. It is cost 4000 for the doctor. That includes all bloods and scans. The the cost of the hospital is 4893 for a 3 night say in a private room. VHI are covering 2900 of this and I have to pay 1983 myself. they ask for this to be paid 10 weeks before the baby is due.
You can claim all this back on your MED1 form the following. You get the % of the tax you pay on your wages. So say you pay 40% taz. They you will get that % back.
I have just pm you.
