Welcome to the Delivery Suite


Admission to Hospital

Please contact the hospital at any time of the day or night on +353 (0)21/492 0500:

  • When you feel regular contractions every 10 minutes or more frequently.
  • If you think the sac of waters has broken.
  • If you have any bleeding or a show of bloodstained mucus.

Please report to reception at CUMH and bring your chart with you. The midwife in charge will assess you and admit you, if necessary. If you are to be admitted to the antenatal ward or to be induced, a date and time will be given to you in advance. You will find the labour ward a busy but relaxed and friendly place.

Articles Required for Maternity Patients


We welcome one person to stay with you throughout labour and delivery, though he/she should be prepared to leave if asked to do so by the staff. However, it is not a must to have someone with you if you do not wish to.
