The Kensington Wing of the Chelsea & Westminster offers private midwifery-led care, best for those women who are having what is termed a ‘low risk’ pregnancy with no complications.
Their team of very experienced midwives will be on hand to look after you all throughout your pregnancy, labour and birth. They are kind, caring and committed to offering you the best attention. On call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, they can offer help and advice on all your concerns during pregnancy and birth. They are also fully trained to do all your tests during pregnancy together with the ultrasound specialists. Most importantly, they will be there to deliver your baby.
If you were to experience complications or problems in pregnancy or during the birth, your midwife will refer you to a consultant obstetrician based at the hospital.
