The Rotunda Private offers an exceptional level of care for infants born in our hospital. Our care plans and support range from intensive care for infants to breastfeeding advice for new mums.

Our Consultant Neonatologists / Paediatricians have a vast experience in managing common infant problems and supporting families in caring for their babies.
We are happy to see infants up to two years of age.

Call the clinic or go online to make an appointment. Self-referrals are welcome.

Paediatrics and Neonatology

The Rotunda Private provides care for all infants born in the hospital. Infants with medical issues encountered during their hospital stay are guaranteed direct consultant input into their care. The level of care provided varies from intensive care for the sickest infants to caring for the well mother and her baby.

Also, we will show you how to care for and look after your baby in the early days and we will ensure that some early screening tests are carried out. We will give you information on important issues including early childhood immunisations, prevention of cot death and registering the birth of your baby.

After being Discharged

Following hospital discharge, we offer ongoing newborn care for the first three months following birth. Our services include a drop-in clinic for the assessment of common newborn issues encountered following discharge such as:

  • Feeding difficulty
  • Poor weight gain
  • Breastfeeding advice and support
  • Assessment of challenges to breastfeeding
  • Any other parental concerns

We can usually offer an appointment within a week of a request or referral. We also offer scheduled two and six week checks.

Visits to the Clinic

During those visits, we perform a comprehensive developmental assessment and clinical examination of your baby.

We assess growth and general health, and discuss any ongoing parental concerns. We have direct links with all paediatric subspecialties available in Dublin, on an outpatient basis, and can arrange for a referral if required.

The Rotunda Private paediatricians have admitting rights and out-patient sessions at the nearby children’s hospitals. This is useful, as should your baby need further attention or long-term follow-up, their care can be transferred smoothly to a children’s hospital.
