Obstetric services provided by Dr Gibb in London
Dr Gibb is a full-time private obstetrician at The Birth Company. He does not have commitments in any other hospital. Mothers give birth at The Portland Hospital for Women and Children, which is in Great Portland Street, London, a short distance from The Birth Company.
Ultrasound baby scans
Dr Gibb performs ultrasound scans ranging from single and early pregnancy scan to 3D and 4D scans.
The following scans are available at The Birth Centre:
First Trimester Scans (Up to 12 weeks)
Second Trimester Scans (13 weeks to 26 weeks)
Third Trimester Scans (27 weeks to 40 weeks)
Cervical suture (also known as cervical cerclage)
Dr Gibb has a special interest and expertise in the treatment of women who have had recurrent miscarriages in the middle part of pregnancy. If this applies to you, Dr Gibb will carry out a full analysis to find out whether weakness of the cervix (cervical incompetence) is playing a role.
Cervical Suture – also called Cervical Cerclage – can help prevent a miscarriage in certain cases where cervical weakness is playing a role. A cervical suture is a nylon tape stitch placed around the upper part on the cervix to lengthen and strengthen it.
Delivering your baby
Dr Gibb looks after women who are planning to have their baby delivered at The Portland Hospital for Women and Children. This hospital provides care for about 2,200 women giving birth each year. It has comprehensive facilities, including a neonatal intensive care unit for babies older than 32 weeks’ gestation, and a maternal high dependency unit. The Portland Hospital is therefore a good choice for women who need the reassurance of full medical back-up.
