Choose from a selection of almost 100 breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack recipes that have each been tailored to provide you with the essential nutrients you and baby need during this time. For each recipe, we provide you with the nutritional information per serving and details about ingredients and cooking instructions.

Also included in the app are encouraging tips for each trimester, advice for good nutrition and physical activity during pregnancy, and a pregnancy tracker that allows you to track the progress of your baby’s growth week by week by comparing them to fruits of the same size. You will also find links to trusted online resources.

The information in this app is based on up to date, current scientific evidence and has been created by dietitians, obstetricians and researchers at the National Maternity Hospital, Holles Street, Dublin and the UCD Perinatal Research Centre, Dublin.

What Our Patients Say

Gráinne Macken

This is my second visit to Merrion Fetal, I was very pleased on both occasions. Lovely quiet waiting room, appointment was on time. The 20-week scan is very detailed we enjoyed watching our baby on the large TV screen. We got some beautiful photos. The nurse was very pleasant and talked us through all the measurements and anatomy. I would highly recommend this scanning clinic.”

Áine Gibney

I had the best experience at the Merrion Fetal Health clinic for my 20-week big scan. The staff were so friendly and so nice and the lovely lady who did my ultrasound scan was amazing. She was so thoroughgoing to absolutely everything and gave me such reassurance on how my baby was growing and developing. I would recommend any Mother to be to attend here if you are looking for a comfortable, reassuring and super pleasant experience.”

Linda O'Sullivan

Highly recommend! We had an early scan due to a little scare at the start of pregnancy and then another at 12 weeks to make sure all was good again. Helen who was scanning on both days was fantastic. We felt totally relaxed and un-rushed while she took her time finding the best angle of baby to get us the clearest pictures as keepsakes all while making sure everything was perfect with baby. She reassured us throughout and I can honestly say it was the best money we ever spent getting both scans done.

Please let Helen know we are 18 weeks now and flying along Highly recommend!
