You can ask for a specific consultant, they asked me who I wanted and I didn't know, so just let them pick. I'm with Dr McPartland, he's a nice man, have never had to wait more than 10 mins to see him as well which is good!

I'm semi private JewelB, have to say I'm thrilled with the waiting times most of all, I've been in and out in a half hour at all my appointments so far!

I am public and was last time as well under Prof MacAuliffe. She is very pleasant but a tough cookie when it comes to you wanting things your way. I had emergency section last time when induction failed and DS was born 16 days overdue. This time I want an elective section and I have some fight on my hands. She doesn't want to do it before 41 weeks. She is very nice though. I also have been seen a good bit both times by Shane Higgins and he is extremely nice and very good. When in delivery last time the consultant on call was Stephen Carroll and he decided on my section and he seemed very nice, although I didn't see him for long. Dr Foley is very good but has an appalling manner, so I would avoid him.

thats good to hear ttc, as the when i rang to book in the girl said prof mc'aulife just does public or private so she gave me s carroll, she said i may get changed to prof if they feel i would be more suited to her.
its all very mind boggling i was given appointments for 12 weeks and then another for a month later to see the doctor and then a number to ring to book a big scan, and then was told to go to a lecture on nutrition when i was 10 weeks!!! please god i will reach all these mile stones !!!!!! :lvs :lvs

Hi,

I would recommend Dr. Shane Higgins. He is a lovely man, takes his time to explain things.

Shane Higgins delivered my second baby last year. I had a premature birth on my first girl and there were other complications.

It all worked out in the end, but it was a very stressful birth. So second time around I decided to go with a consultant to be safe.

Shane Higgins also has a preterm clinic that is so helpful.

Best of luck!! :xox
