We are committed to providing 1:1 care in labour and our midwife to birth ratio is 1:30.
The labour ward consists of 15 purpose built delivery rooms and three higher dependency rooms. Two obstetric operating theatres are situated within the labour ward near to these rooms. Women requiring consultant-led care receive labour care from our hospital based midwives.
Our Caesarean section rate is 25%, relatively low compared to other London maternity units. We have a dedicated theatre team who cover the labour suite during the week and who work alongside the multidisciplinary team.
