The HSE's Chief Clinical Officer has said all maternity units will be compliant with HSE guidelines on partners in the coming week.

Dr Colm Henry admitted there have been problems - particularly around infrastructure in some of the units.

Many couples are still reporting not being able to be together during very difficult stages of pregnancy.

Michelle Daly is a spokesperson for the Irish Birth Movement and is an advocate for maternal mental health.

She told Midwest News that the restrictions on partners at individual hospitals have made it quite traumatic for pregnant women across the region.
