Hi hi. I'm new to this and I'm looking for some advice. I've had a read through lots of threads but I'm realizing that my situation isn't all that common.
I am thirteen weeks pregnant and have recently been diagnosed with breast cancer. I have been receiving amazing medical care and things could not have happened quicker on the breast cancer side of things.
My question is about the pregnancy side of things!! I was planning on going public in the rotunda hospital for my pregnancy and birth. However since the breast cancer diagnosis I've been categorized as high risk and will be attending Holles street instead. I'm trying to figure out if I need to go private or if I'll get the care myself and my baby need in the public system. I've heard nothing but amazing things about the public maternity care in Ireland which is why I was so happy to go that route from the beginning. I'll be having chemo throughout my pregnancy and I'll be monitored really closely in Holles street.
In a nut shell I'm trying to find out if given that I'm pregnant with breast cancer should I:
A: go private or public in Holles street
B: if I go private how much will it cost?
Many thanks in advance!
