Hi Everyone! I am about 9 weeks pregnant (for the first time) and need to choose a hospital to give birth. I live in North West London and have the choice of: Chelsea and Westminster Hospital Hillingdon Hospital Northwick Park Hospital St Mary’s Hospital Queen Charlotte’s and Chelsea Hospital West Middlesex Hospital
I have heard some horror stories about Northwick Park, and my GP has automatically referred me to them. I am thinking about self referring to another hospital and was wondering if anyone has had any recent experiences (maybe in he last couple of years) of maternity care at any of these hospitals? Your advice will be much appreciated!
I gave birth at Queen Charlotte's and had a great experience there with very good care. I didn't love my prenatal midwife but everyone in labour ward was great. I paid for private postnatal which was AMAZING, so I can't speak about the NHS postnatal ward.
