The Portland Hospital understands that having a baby is a tremendously exciting time, but can also be a little bewildering and at times really quite daunting. We aim to help all mothers-to-be to have an enjoyable pregnancy and memorable birthing experience: to prepare you and your body for childbirth, to support you from the moment you discover you’re pregnant, right through to the birth, and to give you the confidence to cope from the moment you step back into day-to-day life.
We care for you and your baby in an environment that is designed to feel as close to home as possible: a comfortable and relaxed setting provided within a hospital environment which gives the added reassurance of safety. Our reputation is for high quality and parent-centred care for each and every mother-to-be. We want all mums and dads to feel respected, supported and empowered at all times.
The Portland Hospital is ‘home’ to more than 80 top obstetric consultants, many of whom are considered to be amongst not only the UK’s, but the world’s leading birthing experts. Our wider team of 300 healthcare professionals, including our team of dynamic and committed midwives, resident obstetric anaesthetists, expert sonographers, obstetric physiotherapists, complementary therapists, nursery nurses, and breast feeding specialists, combined with consultant neonatologists and paediatricians are all there to support our new parents and their babies.

All forms of pain relief are available at The Portland Hospital. One of our resident consultant anaesthetists will undertake an assessment and advise you on the best options for pain relief to meet your individual needs.
