The results are contained in a new Hiqa survey which examines how women felt during pregnancy check-up chats with their GP

Women in Monaghan were most satisfied with the time spent talking about the physical and mental health at check-ups during pregnancy. Women in Longford, on the other hand, were the least satisfied.

HIQA's National Maternity Experience Survey looked at the provision of maternity care by GPs, midwives and practice nurses.

The majority of women locally met with GPs, ranging from 90 percent in Longford to 94 percent in Roscommon.
