All % data provided here is for 2014 and has been calculated by 'bump2babe: The Consumer Guide to Maternity Services in Ireland'. Maternity units provided bump2babe with numbers of mothers or babies for the various categories and we calculated the percentage rates. In some instances, numbers of mothers were provided when we needed numbers of babies or vice versa and this could lead to discrepancies of maximum 2%. Blank spaces indicate no data was provided by the maternity unit.
We are not responsible for any inaccuracies in the figures given to bump2babe. The guide has highlighted and raised concerns about differences in data recording and reporting abilities in the 19 maternity units and 2 midwifery-led units in Ireland. The roll-out of the new Maternal & Newborn Clinical Management System will standardise data recording in future years.
