Why choose us?
Having private obstetric care allows you to know your obstetrician from the earliest stage of your pregnancy. You’ll get the chance to meet most qualified and experienced obstetrician at each and every appointment, which prevents receiving conflicting or even confusing information.
During your pregnancy, private care allows you to have direct access to your consultant obstetrician. As a private patient you will also have more flexibility regarding appointment times and a more efficient handling of any your queries and concerns.
Over the course of your ante-natal appointments you will develop a personal and close relationship with your consultant obstetrician and this helps significantly when you’re in labour. Knowing that you have one of the most highly experienced and trained clinician at hand can make labour a lot less stressful.
Also having your own room and bathroom is really important when you have just given birth and want to enjoy those special moments with your new baby and family.
If you would like to enjoy the comfort of having all your antenatal appointments locally close to your home/workplace with flexible appointments (late appointments and weekend appointments) at our state of the art clinics where we are able to provide pathology tests (including genetic tests) and all the specialist consultant ultrasound scans.
Miss Berrin Tezcan (Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist and Fetal Medicine Specialist) provides unique maternity care. All your antenatal appointments can be scheduled at our clinic. Delivery will be at the Portland Hospital, a state of the art fully private maternity hospital in the heart of London.
Why choose Portland Hospital?
Portland Hospital is the only fully private maternity hospital in the UK, with excellent midwifery and consultant care, meaning you need not worry about the delays in your care in labour.
It is a well-known disadvantage to have your care in the private maternity units within the NHS facility due to most of these units not having separate theatre facilities. Therefore in case of emergencies, these private patients must wait in the theatre waiting list together with an increasing number of NHS patients and complex cases. This can cause incidents at times of emergencies and affects the care that you will have privately.
