Consultant led editorial

Consultant-led care

Consultant-led care is for mothers-to-be who prefer to be looked after by a consultant obstetrician throughout their pregnancy, whether it is low-risk, or in some cases, high-risk.


Your chosen obstetrician will advise on all aspects of your antenatal and maternity care. They will also arrange your hospital booking for the delivery of your baby and offer an informed choice on all types of birth, from normal deliveries through to caesarean sections.

Midwife-led care

Maternity care led by a midwife is available to mothers-to-be who are expecting an uncomplicated pregnancy and birth.


We have a team of highly-experienced, friendly and committed midwives who have the time and resources to empower women wanting a natural birth and to follow their birth plan, including the option of a water birth.

Our complete midwife-led maternity package can be accessed at 10, 20 or 30 weeks and includes:

  • ultrasound scans
  • routinely-required blood tests
  • midwife-led birth and the first 24 hours stay from admission into your private room at The Portland Hospital.
