Specialist care for pregnancy and childbirth

Our dedicated obstetricians and world-class maternity facilities ensure that you and your baby are in safe hands throughout your time with us

Overview

Obstetrics is a medical specialty focused on caring for expectant mothers before, during and after childbirth. As the only fully private maternity hospital in the UK, The Portland Hospital is dedicated to the safety and wellbeing of mothers-to-be. Our experienced consultant obstetricians work alongside a dedicated team of midwives, sonographers and specialist nurses to support and advise you throughout your pregnancy and beyond.

Our maternity service is complemented by the expertise of our paediatric facilities and on-site intensive care units. We also provide a range of antenatal and postnatal classes for women and their partners, as well as exercise classes to help you maintain general fitness and prepare your body for having a baby.

  • Caesarean delivery

    Need to know

    A caesarean delivery is also known as a caesarean section or c-section. It can be planned for or carried out as an emergency, if things don't go as planned during labour. Your doctor may recommend one for a variety of medical reasons. Some women simply choose to deliver their baby this way.
