Every woman who is pregnant and ordinarily resident in Ireland is entitled to maternity care under the Maternity and Infant Scheme. Ordinarily resident means you are living here, or you intend to remain living here for at least one year. Ireland provides very high-quality Maternity care, to both mothers and infants.
Private hospitals also provide Maternity Care in some areas, but details of these services are not listed here.
If you have a medical card, you should apply for your newborn baby to be added to your medical card as soon as they have been assigned a PPSN.
