Restrictions on partners attending maternity wards in the Midlands Regional Hospital in Mullingar have been further eased.

All birth partners can now attend the labour ward when their partner is in active labour and birth partners of mothers who have a planned caesarean section can attend the birth of their new born baby in the theatre from today.

The decision comes after a review and consideration for safety and partners will be asked to wear full PPE when attending the birth of their baby which will be supplied by the hospital.
