Why Choose Private Midwifery Care?

Choosing to have a private midwife is your way to take control of your pregnancy. The personalised care will give you peace of mind that you are receiving the best care available making your pregnancy experience more comfortable and reassuring.

Here at East Cheshire NHS Trust we have a dedicated Private Midwifery Team, who are passionate about supporting you through your pregnancy and birth. We see each family as unique, as is each birth experience, and we are here at every stage to support you on the journey to meeting your baby. Unlike other private midwifery services, our midwives can care for you even if your pregnancy is or becomes high risk, giving you peace of mind no matter what your circumstances.

Meet Your Team

Your midwives will work closely with the consultants and a wider team of health professionals and therapists so that you receive prompt referrals to the relevant expert. We can attend these appointments with you if needed, working as a team and supporting a multi-disciplinary approach to your care. 

You can arrange to have your appointments at home, at work or anywhere else that makes it easy for you to be calm and unhurried. We believe that your care should be family centred, and appointment times should be available so that partners and other siblings can be involved. To facilitate this, evenings and weekends are available in addition to 9-5 Monday to Friday.

Our services

When you book with us you will be given your midwives' personal contact details, so you know there is always help available.

Your appointments will be arranged at a time and place to suit you and your families needs. Appointments are typically an hour long, so that you can have ample time to discuss any concerns you may have and plan for the birth as well as your new family.
