What women say
Darcey Bussell OBE
World famous ballet dancer who gave birth to both her daughters at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.
“I am so grateful to all the wonderful staff at the hospital. They looked after us so well.”
Charlene was supported by Tina Hutchings, Specialist Sister in the Early Pregnancy Assessment Unit (EPAU), when she had a miscarriage and then discovered she was pregnant again.
“I can’t thank Tina enough for what she did for me when I had my miscarriage and then when I was pregnant again. She was very caring, she explained everything she was doing and she always had time to talk to me.”
Sharon is a mother with a history of heart surgery who received specialist antenatal care from staff at Chelsea and Westminster during her pregnancy.
“I was treated by the special congenital heart disease team. I was treated so well.”
“The care I was given was exceptional. Even when things got tough the staff explained what was happening and why, and helped to get my baby out safe and sound. The care I received from the midwives after I went home was also very much-needed and appreciated.”
“My antenatal and postnatal care was second to none. They provided expert guidance, reassurance and gave me complete confidence in bringing Sam into the world. I believe they are an outstanding team and a real asset to our community. The Labour Ward team were also fantastic, looking after us from the moment we arrived until Sam was delivered.”
Host of Channel 4’s Property Ladder show who had all of her children at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.
“I love all the midwives in Chelsea and Westminster—they turned up trumps with all three of my sons’ births. I was lucky enough to have been able to breastfeed all my children myself which was great for us all.”
“The staff on the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) were just fantastic when our twins were born prematurely and spent almost 2 months on the Unit. I wrote my book Little Miracles to say thank you and to raise money for NICU.”
