I remember reading something about galliers maternity ward closing for good in the local papers before xmas but cannot find anything on the net.
The govt tried to close it back in 2009 but after alot of help from our local member of parliament Alanna MacTiernan and the papers and all the expectant mothers including myself we fought and won to keep it open.
Galliers is a private wing of a public hospital with a medical and maternity ward which offers the chance for partners to stay during and after the birth ,private rooms for all patients and a natural birthing philosophy.
I would be very upset if this ward has indeed closed leaving the mothers no choice but to birth on the public side of the hospital where the partners are not allowed to stay ,where most of the rooms are shared and intervention and medically controlled birth is their following.
So can anyone who is going or was going there inform me a little more? TIA
