Considering a private Midwife? We want your pregnancy and first weeks with your baby to be incredible and stress free so that you enjoy every single minute. Our unique, community based Midwifery package is designed to ensure you and your family have all the support you need 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our service provides appointments at your home or work place, regular & routine pregnancy checks and ongoing support all with a private Midwife you know and trust, working side by side with Consultant Obstetricians so that you receive the Gold Standard of care.
What is included?
The Midwifery package includes all of all your routine pregnancy checks to monitor the health of you and your baby.
Your named midwife will come to meet you at a time and place of your convenience between 6-10 weeks of pregnancy. After talking and understanding your history, health, and the type of birth you want she will be able to help you decide where you would like to have your baby. Your booking-in appointment will be arranged at your chosen hospital or birth centre at around 10 weeks, and all 1st trimester screening and scans discussed and planned.
Your Midwife can perform your antenatal checks at a time and place that suits you and your families needs. This includes coming to your work place, or evening and weekend appointments. During the 2nd trimester you will se your Midwife regularly and you will be offered an anomaly scan between 19-21 weeks.
As you near the end of your pregnancy you will see you midwife frequently, (approximately every 2 weeks, weekly for the last 3 weeks) The time your private midwife is able to spend with you and your partner allows for lots of discussion on birth plans, parent education, planning for baby etc. We want you to approach your due date totally calmly, stress free and excited about your babies arrival. We will provide all your care up until Term plus 11, when we can arrange induction at your chosen hospital.
Additional Consultations, Scans & Blood Tests
In addition to our Midwifery Package, you can also arrange private consultations, maternity scans and blood tests with our consultants at our Cheshire based Centre for Reproductive Health (see Tailored Package for prices). Alternatively these can be arranged your named NHS hospital.
