“I had such a great experience delivering my first child at the Kensignton Wing. The midwife’s and Dr Sadia were incredible during the whole process. They helped create a smooth and efficient birthing process for me and the aftercare was great. I learnt a lot how to care and feed from my baby and went home feeling like a fully equipped mother! They create a safe and efficient environment and couldn’t recommend anywhere better. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the chef provides a great menu! Thank you for the great experience. “

About

The Kensington Wing is the private maternity unit at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, part of one of the top ranked and top performing UK hospital Trusts. Located in Chelsea in southwest London, the Kensington Wing offers a range of private care options for parent-to-be and baby, with a focus on individualised, custom care.

One of the most wonderful features of the Kensington Wing is the ability to have all the benefits of private maternity care, including trained midwives or obstetrics/gynaecology doctors, or both, all in a comfortable, private setting. Being part of a highly-rated hospital like Chelsea and Westminster provides the additional peace of mind for expectant mothers, that should any complications arise, the expert medical staff and state of the art diagnostics and equipment are within easy reach.

The Kensington Wing offers a range of birthing and baby delivery options with the highest standards of care available for each. Patients can choose midwife-led or consultant-led care for their pregnancy and delivery. In addition, follow-up care, including postnatal exams and support, are provided.

Midwife care and delivery are available for most types of low-risk pregnancies. Our trained midwives work hand-in-hand with ultrasound specialists and other consultants to ensure all the pre-natal checks and monitoring occur during your pregnancy. The expert and highly-trained midwives at the Kensington Wing are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to provide a comprehensive, patient-focused pregnancy experience. When the big moment arrives, your chosen midwife will help you deliver and welcome the newest member of your family into the world. Should any complications arise, a trained obstetrics consultant is always on call and assigned to your case, and can step in at a moment's notice.

Consultant care and delivery follow a more traditional modern medicine route. All pre-natal exams and tests are conducted, and your chosen obstetrician/consultant will continue to monitor your pregnancy and baby's development. When it is time for delivery, the consultant will expertly work with you to ensure a smooth delivery. If any issues develop, they are fully trained and capable of handling emergencies as fully qualified doctors.

Most of the various services at the Kensington Wing are available a la carte, and a customized program of prenatal checks, labour and delivery services, and post-natal services can be tailored to the needs, wants, and financial limitations of every expectant mother. All of these services are offered from the comfort of a highly-rated, private labour and delivery hospital London.

Kensington is all about providing choices to mothers to make their pregnancy and delivery a joyous and positive experience. From pre-natal care to post-natal care and everything in between, the Kensington Wing at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital is truly an unmatched private pregnancy hospital experience.

Came for monitoring for the health of our unborn baby upon the request of our doctor. Had to wait hours because there was no midwife available…this is not the service level we would accept for this private service which we pay a great dea of money. In simple words, your service is absolutely unacceptable! Inwill never refer anyone else.

Hello, thank you for your comments and we are very sorry to hear that you did not have the best experience with us. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we were exceptionally busy with emergencies on the day you visited us and this meant that our routine patients had to wait longer than usual. We try to avoid this happening as much as possible but as is the nature of maternity care, activity can be unpredictable. Please be assured patient safety is our top priority. We hope for your next visit we will be able to give you the quality of service we aim for with all our patients. Please do get in touch with us if you want to discuss this further, you can email us at chelwest.kensington@nhs.net or call on 020 3315 8616.

My whole experience could not have been any better. The staff was amazing and so helpful. All midwives and nurses treated me with outmost professionalism and kindness checking on me and my baby on regular basis and addressing every single concern of mine. I truly felt that I am in safe hands and my recovery could not have gone any smoother. I do plan a visit to personally thank all the staff. The facilities and especially the rooms could do with a bit of renovation as they quickly become outdated for a private wing. Nevertheless, I will be more than happy to refer back to the wing for another pregnancy.

I came when my waters broke. I called the hospital and they suggested i should come. They gave me the room straight away, i didn't have to wait. My midwife Sara was very nice and friendly, she was very helpfull and was traking my baby constantly, providing an update every few hours. I was monitored all the time and felt like i was in good hands. Facilities are also good. We had a bid TV in a delivery unit and we connected our Apple TV to it.

We had a wonderful experience at the Kensington Wing. We were really looked after by the midwives and support staff and the facilities are incredible. Being pregnant during a pandemic was obviously stressful and we felt privileged to be able to give birth privately with all of the extra support that entails. We had an elective C section under the incredible care of Charlotte and her team and will always be grateful for the way they looked after us. The room was perfect for our needs and my partner and I were able to rest and eat well during our stay whilst looking after our little boy.
