The birth of your baby is a very special time for you and your family. The Kensington Wing at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital is committed to providing you with the highest standards of care, so you can treasure your pregnancy and birth experience.
Our facilities provide you the assurance of being in a hospital recognised as one of the safest to have a baby in London, while enjoying the quality of care you would expect from a private maternity unit. We work closely with other specialist consultants and organisations, such as the expert consultant paediatric surgeons and cardiologists from the Royal Brompton Hospital who we share a close working relationship with.
Private maternity facilities include:
- Dedicated private maternity unit
- Private consultation rooms for antenatal appointments
- Medical day assessment unit
- Labour / delivery rooms
- Postnatal en-suite rooms for you and your partner
- Luxury postnatal suite, The Kensington Suite
When the time arrives for your baby to be born, you will be admitted to The Kensington Wing and be met by the midwives and your consultant obstetrician. As a forward-thinking unit, we also encourage choices in birth position and can provide birth balls, beanbags, floor mats, birthing stools, and birthing pools.
The Kensington Wing has 16 individual rooms, all with a unique layout, providing a peaceful environment with safety, comfort and privacy. When your baby arrives, you can rest and bond with your baby in the privacy of your own private room. We aim to provide you with the highest level of comfort, so all of our rooms are designed to feel like a home away from home. Visiting times are flexible, so you and your loved ones can welcome your new baby at your leisure.
Postnatal Suite – The Kensington Suite
For the ultimate birthing experience, consider our luxury postnatal maternity suite, which provides the most exclusive maternity service in London. Chelsea and Westminster Hospital itself boasts a modern, airy, spacious environment with ample open-plan spaces and natural light from a transparent roof over a five-storey main atrium.
Through the Hospital Arts Programme, we have displayed more than 1,500 works of art throughout the building, and regularly arrange concerts and performances for patients, visitors and staff to enjoy.
