Having your baby with us

We pride ourselves on ensuring parents-to-be who choose to have their baby at The Portland Hospital have as positive and stress-free a birthing experience as possible.

Our maternity unit offers a range of state-of-the-art services and facilities, designed to minimise the stress of childbirth, and contribute to providing you and your partner with the happy memories you deserve. 

 

We provide a number of items for your personal comfort whilst staying with us, and will advise you on what to bring along for yourself and your newborn baby, including clothes and nappies. 

You'll be happy to hear that your partner can stay overnight in your room and with breakfast included at no extra charge, and that your baby’s siblings may visit at any time. Find out more below about your maternity experience at The Portland.

Your experience maternity

Our nursery

Our 24-hour nursery is on the same floor as the postnatal rooms and is run by our highly-experienced nursery nurses. They work closely with our midwives and are available to offer you practical lessons, such as changing your baby's nappies and bathing them.

Should you wish to rest for any period, your baby can be looked after in the nursery and be brought back to you when you feel more energised. Be assured, only parents are allowed to enter the nursery if their baby is in there. 

Our care services

Paediatric Intensive Care Unit

The Portland Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is available to treat babies who require emergency care. If your baby has been born early or requires treatment, we can also look after them in our Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU).

The HDU is supported 24 hours a day by a dedicated on-site Consultant Obstetric Anaesthetist and is equipped with specialist monitoring for both mother and baby.
