Midwife led birth centre
Chelsea and Westminster has a new choice of birthing options, a bespoke midwife led birth centre alongside our other maternity facilities.
The birth centre is a spa-like facility comprising seven rooms—four with birthing pools—and all having mood lighting that can be controlled by mums during birth. A private suite is also available to women accessing our private patients service, with their care coordinated by their chosen midwife.
Vivien Bell (Head of Midwifery) said: “We respect each mother’s decision when it comes to how they wish to give birth and, as such, provide women with a full range of options for their birth plan, from homebirth all the way through to a consultant led delivery.
“We’ve designed the midwife led birth centre to make mothers feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible. Women who choose this service will have all of their antenatal and postnatal appointments in the unit, which will provide mothers with the continuity of care they want throughout pregnancy.
“It is the newest and most state-of-the-art unit in London and we encourage women to view the environment and meet our experienced midwifery team.”
