The Government is facing calls to outline a roadmap for the lifting of maternity restrictions.

The National Maternity Hospital at Holles Street announced that visiting for inpatients is now unrestricted.

It comes just a day after the Rotunda Hospital stated that it couldn't ease restrictions, due to a low vaccination rate among inpatients and it's old infrastructure.

Former Master of the National Maternity Hospital Peter Boylan says there are a number of difference between the two hospitals.

Better Maternity Care is welcoming the updated visitor guidelines for partners at the National Maternity Hospital.
