On Tuesday afternoon Niall Boylan on Classic Hits spoke about the restrictions still in place in Maternity hospitals around the country which mean many fathers to be can only be with their pregnant partner at late labour and birth of their baby.

Fathers are not allowed attend scans or be by their partners side until the final moments of birth.
