From what I've heard from friends, you'll need a big chunk more than that. Is there a particular reason you would choose the Portland? Bear in mind there are no full service hospital facilities on site, so if something goes wrong for you or your baby you will need to be transferred - potentially to different hospitals. A friend who opted for the Portland didn't deny it was a pretty luxurious experience, but likened it to giving birth in a hotel.
I would recommend The Portland - if you can afford it. Our bill was more than 15k. Due to complications in my pregnancy it was the best option for me. My consultant was great and on hand 24 hours a day.
Here are the pricing guidelines for consultant led care;
Thank you. User, can you tell me how much over you went? The consultant fee is 7500 plus hospital fee of 6k + 2k for epidural etc. I just can't figure where the rest of it goes? I'm happy with the facilities at the Portland. They do have a NICU just not level 3 so I won't transfer to their care until I'm past 28 weeks. The one thing they don't have is an ICU for mothers but it's incredibly rare to need ICU level care during labor. I chose the Portland not for the hospital really but for the consultant. He specialist in a complication I have and this is where he delivers privately.
