There has been anger and confusion among expectant parents over maternity ward restrictions for partners.

On Wednesday, first-time father Gary Toohey tweeted a photo of himself in a carpark, waving up at the window of a maternity hospital.

He wasn't allowed into the hospital until his partner Joyce went into active labour.

Gary joined us on The Last Word along with Krysia Lynch, Chair of AIMS Ireland, to discuss the impact these restrictions are having on pregnant women and their partners.
