I just found out that i am expecting my 4th baby. I am 40 and very nervous on this one. Have been trying for a year and nothing so had give up hope hope and them SURPIRSE!!
I had my last 3 babies in Daisy Hill and I am going public to OLOL with this one. i will defo need a c-section as have done with all my other monkeys.
Basically I am looking for advice on OLOL as you hear so much bad press about it.
Is there any cost involved in having your baby public in OLOL and also can I go to the MLU and then near then delivery time go the the main for my Section.
Thanks a mill

I had a very positive birth in Olol. I originally was going private but all the private rooms were full so I ended up in public room and it was absolutely fine. MLU is fantastic and free. But you cannot go MLU if you need c-section, so that may not be an option for you
The midwives in OLOL are great and having had a baby in Rotunda and OLOL, I would definitely go to OLOL first.
I think private births are a waste of money. You get the same service publicly.
Big congrats – very exciting for you.
We have 4 children and it’s brilliant, never a dull moment 🙂November 8, 2015 at 2:58 pm #135138
Because this is your 4th baby i’d say theres no need to worry. you have been through it all before and you’ll be grand hopefully
when my sister had a baby at 36 she was quite upset when they called her a ‘geriatric’ mum but its just a normal term for anyone pregnant over 35.November 8, 2015 at 9:39 pm #135144
I had my two in the Lourdes and couldn’t fault them! I did go private and found it worthwhile for me. MLU is fantastic as Sabbi said but not an option with a section unfortunately.
Best of luck.November 9, 2015 at 8:29 am #135145
I had both mine in the OLOL, both sections but no issues with staff or hospital.
I don’t think mlu is an option as you’ve had previous sections
Best of luck with your pregnancyNovember 9, 2015 at 10:09 am #135146
Huge congratulations, i hope you have a safe and trouble free pregnancy 😀November 9, 2015 at 11:03 am #135147

things have improved a lot since i had my last baby 6yrs ago the waiting times and scan dates happen a lot quicker now, midwives are great
