Trying To Conceive
Open day for prospective new parents at The Portland Hospital
The Portland Hospital will be welcoming visitors to its Pregnancy Open Day on Sunday 13th November 2016. For parents-to-be, it offers an exclusive chance to meet the maternity team and tour the facilities at the largest private maternity unit in the UK.
The Open Day is an ideal time for perspective new parents to meet and discuss their birthing options with a full range of specialists at The Portland Hospital including Consultants, midwives, physiotherapists and sonographers, and aims to help expectant mothers feel at ease. Those attending will have the opportunity to speak to members of the team who will be on hand to offer advice and information about the Portland's facilities, and answer any questions visitors may have about giving birth at the hospital.
Midwives will take visitors on a tour around the facilities and explain about the different types of delivery on offer including hypnobirthing and water births to see what will suit each individual’s needs and wishes. During the tour visitors will visit the maternity floors, delivery suites, birthing pools and the 3D/4D ultrasound services that show moving and still images of babies in the womb.
Hayley Seale, Lead Midwife at The Portland Hospital, said: “Our Open Days allow expectant parents to gain an insight in to what it’s like to have their baby at The Portland Hospital. By opening our doors we offer the opportunity for visitors to meet with a wide range of members of the maternity team as well have our midwives take guests on a tour of the labour and post-natal floors to show them the world class facilities that makes The Portland Hospital a very special place to have a baby.”
“Our aim for the Open Day is to not only to introduce visitors to what it’s like to experience their birth at The Portland Hospital, but also to provide a valuable source of information that people can take away with them and make an informed choice about the care they wish to receive.”
