Maternity services

Your pregnancy is one of the most exciting times of your life. At Imperial Private Healthcare, you can enjoy this exhilarating journey in a premium maternity environment, with the support of an expert team.

Our approach to private pregnancy and private maternity is a combination of exceptional care, state-of-the-art equipment and modern comforts. As a result, families have trusted us for generations at this special time, and we have an enviable international reputation for maternity care. Our expertise enables us to look after you and your baby whatever your circumstances and requirements.

We take great pride in being at the start of your journey into parenthood – from providing fertility and pre-conceptual advice, through your pregnancy scans, to ensuring exceptional standards of care during and after the delivery.

From the experienced consultants, specially selected midwives and support staff to the elegant surroundings, modern décor and delicious menus, you will find everything about your time with us comforting, relaxing and reassuring.

Expertise and experience

We understand that no two pregnancies or births are the same and each person has different preferences.

We want you to have the support of trusted professionals from pre-conception through to ante-natal care, followed by an exceptional pregnancy and maternity experience, including your follow-up care.

We offer a choice of maternity options, so that your care can be tailored to your own personal preference. Consultant-led care is available at both St Mary’s and Queen Charlotte’s & Chelsea hospitals, where you will be cared for by your chosen consultant throughout your pregnancy, birth, and postnatal follow-up. Or, if you prefer, we offer a midwifery-led service at Queen Charlotte’s & Chelsea if your pregnancy is expected to be straightforward.

With world-class consultants and midwives and modern facilities, we provide outstanding levels of safety, whatever choices you make for your birth.

We can care for you if you have a straightforward pregnancy, or if you and your baby are considered to be higher risk. If you require specialist medical support, you’re in the ideal location. We have neonatal services at St Mary’s Hospital and Queen Charlotte’s & Chelsea Hospital, with back-up support services if you or your baby require any additional attention. We have specialist medical and surgical support from our consultants on both sites.

Our locations

Our facilities are world-class and the equipment is state-of-the-art. Our sites have the capacity to handle any type of pregnancy – from the most straightforward to the most complex, including multiple and premature births.

Both sites have a secure and supervised nursery service, run by fully qualified nursery nurses and midwives. They offer advice, reassurance and dedicated care to all mothers and their families. This means that you can enjoy total peace of mind during one of the most important, emotional and exhilarating experiences life has to offer.
