The HSE must urgently review the Covid-19 restrictions in place at maternity hospitals, which are causing distress and trauma for thousands of women and their partners.

That's according to Mayo-based Fianna Fail Senator Lisa Chambers.

Senator Chambers acknowledges that hospitals have imposed the restrictions in a bid to protect mothers, babies and frontline staff from the spread of coronavirus.

However, she says it's unfair that women cannot be accompanied by their partners to the 20-week scan, and that the father can only visit the labour ward in a limited capacity.
