Your pregnancy, your choice
Welcome to Maternity Services. At Chelsea and Westminster Hospital we know that pregnancy can be an exciting but daunting time for women and their partners. There are many choices to make and questions to answer which is why we have designed this website to help you and your family have the best possible experience at this special time—and hopefully answer some of your questions.
How can you choose Chelsea and Westminster?
You can also choose to have your baby with us through your midwife, at any of our community or hospital clinics, or through your GP. We aim to inform you of your first antenatal appointment date within 2 weeks of hearing from you or your GP.
Borne is a collaboration between Chelsea and Westminster Health Charity and the hospital maternity team.
Borne’s goal is to prevent disability and death in childbirth and create lifelong health for mothers and babies.
Through research, Borne will understand how to prevent premature birth, heart disease in pregnancy and cerebral palsy. We will also offer long term follow up of these children to demonstrate maintained improvements in brain, heart and metabolic health.
Through education, Borne will train hundreds of maternity teams in high, middle and low income countries, develop technologies to support these maternity teams, and prevent unnecessary complications in childbirth.
