The Rotunda maternity hospital in Dublin has announced it is to remove most remaining restrictions on partner visits.
It says they're now planning to return to pre-COVID access in a "safe way for all our patients and their partners".
However, visits by extended family members and children will not be allowed.
From Monday, partners will be able to attend Booking Visit appointments and appointments in the hospital's high-risk clinic.
A week later, remaining restrictions on partner visits for other antenatal outpatient appointments will be removed.
Restrictions around other visits such as early pregnancy scans and anomaly scans had already been lifted.
Partners will continue to be allowed to join a woman giving birth in the delivery suite, and visit during the daily visiting hours (8am to 8pm).
In a statement, the Rotunda said: "It must be noted that many of our outpatient areas are in older buildings with very small waiting areas.
"In order to assist us in managing potential overcrowding in these outpatient waiting areas, we strongly encourage patients to please attend routine outpatient appointments alone, and only bring an accompanying partner for occasional visits, such as if you have a complicated or special issue to discuss with your care team.
"In times when there is high footfall, partners may be asked to wait outside the building until called to the consultation room."
Anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 is being urged to not travel to the hospital, while management says they may need to change access conditions "at any time" based on the COVID-19 situation, overcrowding episodes or other disease outbreaks.
Today's announcement comes just over a month after the Rotunda extended partner visiting hours.
The hospital faced criticism over its visiting policy last month after it was revealed a documentary crew was allowed access for filming while restrictions on partner visits remained in place.
