Maternity services

Maternity services

Private maternity care is quite expensive. For example, a first birth at the Portland Hospital in London costs £2,880 for a normal delivery and £3,790 for an elective caesarean for the first 24 hours of care, including the delivery. Additional nights in a standard room cost around £1000. You also have to allow for the fees charged by your private consultant obstetrician, which might be £3,000 to £4,000. So, in total, a private birth at a hospital such as the Portland could cost £7,500 to £10,000. There will be some saving if you opt for a "Midwife led Delivery Service" or "Midwife Led Care". In this instance, you will still have a named obstetrician, but he or she will see you less often, and the birth may be supported by an on-call Consultant Obstetrician.
