If You Have to Travel Outside of Ireland for Treatment

Usually, the time between diagnosis and delivering your baby is quite short (approximately 2 – 3 weeks depending on gestation) so making all the plans for travel can be quite rushed.

There are a lot of things to think about. Do we fly or sail? How long will we be over there? Should we book return flights? What if I am not well enough to travel? What should we bring? What will it be like?

Depending on your gestation the hospital can usually give you an approximated time frame. Some women/couples don’t book return travel until after their baby is born as they are unsure of how long they will be there for.


Sometimes you may need to stay in a hotel for a few days before having your baby. The hospital may make you aware if this is the case so you can be prepared.
