Shared Care

The Maternity and Infant Care Scheme provides an agreed programme of care free of charge to all MUMS TO BE attending DODDER PARK MEDICAL. This scheme is provided by the Health Service Executive (HSE) it provides an agreed programme of care to an expectant mother arising out of her pregnancy and to her new-born baby for six weeks after birth.

If you agree to this programme of combined care, all MUMS TO BE attending DODDER PARK MEDICAL will be under the care of Dr Lucinda Dockeray and an Obstetrician of your choice. The scheme has an agreed schedule of visits that is recommended allowing 6 GP visits for first time Mums and 7 GP visits for second time Mums, however, this schedule may be modified to address your individual needs.

The MUMS TO BE programme at DODDER PARK MEDICAL allows 7 scheduled visits to all MUMS TO BE. We recognise the important relationship that expectant women place with their midwife and for that reason we are happy to provide you with a dedicated practice midwife who will be here to provide you with all the support that you require throughout your pregnancy.
