I am booked to deliver on the 14th August at 38weeks +4 days by caesarian at the portland for my 3rd child.

My consultant is off the two weeks prior and as with my previous pregnancies started having complications.High Blood pressure etc.

Not sure if to change consultants or hospitals had a good experience on 2nd child at portland.

Consultant is very laid back maybe not to worry me.

Also a little annoyed as he has put up delivery charges by £2000 just today.

He works out of royal free so always have back up when he is not about but would prefer some certainty.

Does anyone know if another dr will take so late ?

I can recommend that most fab consultant who works out of the Homerton usually but also from the portland. She's exceptional in my view.

I also had Portland caesarian - was planning a Portland Midwife delivery but ended up caesarian - I had Maggie Blott - she was great. Wishing you a happy experience too.

used to work with a few of the Portland consultants - Nick Nicholas is very good (was my ob wtih dd1 and dd2) Julie Price also excellent. Jeffrey Braithwaite - good sense of humour and laid back (most of the time!) and Keith Duncan is lovely :0)
