I am (very) new to this and was wondering whether there were any more recent views regarding the Lansdell Suite at St Thomas's or the facilities at St John's and St Elizabeth's - the most recent posts seem to date from early this year. And any views re consultants? Eugene Oteng-Ntim at the Lansdell seems to get a lot of positive feedback.
Thanks so much for the response helpivegottogivebirth - I'm from South Africa so am finding the whole UK system quite confusing (and I don't have a wide network of friends with babies). As a matter of interest, was your sister in law's CS elective or emergency?
it was elective. she had an ivf baby and wasrhesus negative so was worried about a natural birth. her local nhs hospital refused to consider an elective cesarean, so a month before the due date they decided to go to Lansdell suite and Eugene was very reassuring etc. they paid for it but it worked really well.
