Mother and Baby

Portrait of happy mother and babyWe are delighted to offer free combined antenatal care to our expectant mothers under the Maternity and Infant care scheme.

To avail of this scheme the doctor will ask you to complete an application form at your first visit. This is then forwarded to the HSE where it is processed for inclusion in the scheme.

The scheme allows for 6 antenatal visits (7 for subsequent pregnancies), a two week check up for your baby and a six week check up for mother and baby.

Additional antenatal visits (up to a maximum of 5) may be included for certain defined pregnancy complications such as hypertension, gestational diabetes and pre eclampsia.

The scheme allows for routine ante natal checks only and does not include medical care that is required outside of routine antenatal check ups. The scheme also excludes lab investigations. Please note that fees apply to these services.

Childhood Immunisations.

The Vaccination Schedule, as recommended by the HSE, is provided free to all children at the clinic

Immunisation is a simple, safe and effective way of protecting your child against certain diseases. The risks from having these diseases are far greater than the risk of any minor side effects from immunisation. To gain full immunity, it is important to follow the schedule as directed, where possible. The due dates are based on the child’s age by calendar dates, and not by weeks.

Vaccination Schedule (babies born before 1st July 2015)

2 months 6 in 1 ( Diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, Hib, Hepatitis B) + PCV (pneumococcal vaccine)

4 months 6 in 1 + Men C ( Meningitis C)

6 months 6 in 1 + PCV + Men C

12 months MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) + PCV

13 months Men C + Hib (haemophilus influenzae B)

4-5 years 4 in 1 ( Diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio) + MMR (vaccine given in school)

11 – 14 years MMR and second Diphtheria / tetanus booster(vaccine given in school)

Vaccination Schedule (babies born after 1st July 2015)

Other Vaccinations

Other vaccines, such as the Chickenpox vaccine, are available privately, but are not covered by the national immunisation programme.

Generally, the side effects of vaccines are mild, if at all. We at The Park Clinic will be happy to talk to you about these, or any concerns you may have, before you have your child vaccinated. Common reactions are soreness, swelling and redness at the site of injection, fever, irritability, off form, and off food for 24-48 hrs after the vaccine. Generally paracetamol or ibuprofen is all that is needed.

If your child is very ill or has a temperature, the immunisation should be postponed until your child is better. However, infants with minor coughs and colds, or those on antibiotics, can be immunised safely and effectively. If in doubt, let us see the child, rather than putting it off. One of our doctors will happily examine your baby, before our nurse gives the vaccines, if necessary.
