Maternity Services & Hospitals – private obstetricians right at the bottom of the page
NHS Options Close By
Karin opted for UCLH (University College Hospital) and their maternity unit at The Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Wing (EGA) close to Euston Station as several friends of hers had had their children there and had been very happy.
Close to St John’s Wood, there is also St Mary’s Hospital (where Karin was hospitalised several times during her first pregnancy suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum) and part of Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. There is also The Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead. There are of course others, but those three are the closest distance-wise.
Private Options Close By
If you want to go private, there is the famous Portland Hospital in Marylebone, and St Mary’s also have a private section called The Lindo Wing. UCLH also has a private wing, The Fitzrovia Suite, and at the time of updating this page in winter of 2024, they still only admit women opting for C-sections.
There are of course other private options, but the above are near St John’s Wood.
The nationally and internationally highly renowned Dr Fred Ushakov, under whose care Karin was when at UCLH, opened his private clinic, London Pregnancy Clinic, in spring of 2020 and she am delighted that many more pregnant women can see him now that he has his private clinic.
Karin went through something quite traumatic with one of her pregnancies and she is grateful to this day for Dr Fred’s sensitivity and care which ultimately played a big part in making her feel brave enough to try again. That last try resulted in her son.
Below are names of obstetricians that are popular in the group. Please note that they also work at NHS hospitals.
