Excellent maternity care in a safe environment with a team of highly skilled professionals

Situated in the heart of London at St Thomas’ Hospital, the Westminster Maternity Suite is a perfect setting for what is sure to be an unforgettable moment for you and your partner as you welcome your new baby into the world

If you have your baby at the Westminster Maternity Suite, you will be choosing the best of both worlds – top-quality private maternity care, provided by a highly experienced clinical team, with the reassurance of all our specialist NHS services under one roof, should the need arise.

The Westminster Maternity Suite has been offering private maternity care for more than 20 years, and boasts some of the most accomplished and well-trained obstetricians, neonatologists, anaesthetists and midwives, so you can be confident that you and your baby are in the safest possible hands.

Here at Guy’s and St Thomas’, we are world-renowned for excellent medical care, research and innovation, and our hospitals have a long and proud history.

We delivered more than 7,000 babies in the maternity unit at St Thomas’ last year – both NHS and private patients – and our highly skilled team is accustomed to managing both straightforward and very complex pregnancies. It is for these reasons that we choose to deliver our private obstetric service within St Thomas’ where we can combine high-tech efficiency and safety with the comfort care and facilities of a private obstetric centre. Ultimately we aim to achieve the very best of both worlds.

The health and wellbeing of you and your baby is of paramount importance to us. So when you choose the Westminster Maternity Suite, you know you can expect the highest levels of care and safety. Our dedicated team will support you through every stage of pregnancy and you can be reassured that our maternity services achieved the highest possible accreditation for risk assurance.

When you choose to come to the Westminster Maternity Suite, you have a team of obstetricians to choose from to deliver your baby. The obstetric team will provide you with the expert care and support you need throughout your pregnancy and baby’s birth. All births are consultant-led, which means you have direct access to your chosen consultant throughout your pregnancy and you will be seen by the same consultant at all your clinic appointments. There are a range of birthing choices, giving you the freedom to give birth in the way you wish.

At the Westminster Maternity Suite, our fees are among the most competitive for private maternity care in central London, while offering patients access to exceptional care and support. Hospital fees start from as little as £4,000, including one night’s stay, and consultant’s fees are around £5,000. Some insurance companies may cover maternity care. For further information please contact us on 020 7188 3457.

When you have your baby with us, you will enjoy one of the best and most iconic views in London. From your room, overlooking the River Thames, you are directly opposite Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, with great natural light, plus state-of-the-art-facilities.

You will have your own dedicated midwife throughout the birth and after your baby is born. Your family and friends can visit at any time, and partners can even stay overnight at no extra cost to you.

Our maternity services, which are for local women and those from further afield who come to us for specialist care, are of a very high standard and among the best in London, according to the healthcare watchdog, the Care Quality Commission.

The Westminster Maternity Suite also accepts NHS patients who may wish to transfer to us for postnatal care. We understand that during your pregnancy your needs may change, so if you only decide you would like to come to us in the later stages of pregnancy, we will be flexible in accommodating your needs.

What the patients say…

To everyone at the Westminster Maternity Suite: Thank you so much for delivering our beautiful daughter Maya Annabelle safely. We couldn’t have wished for a better doctor to guide us through the pregnancy and birth, and all the midwives were fantastic…
