Can't say enough about how wonderful Virginia and Kay are. Would recommend them to anyone planning or expecting a baby. 5 star rating simply isn't enough, they need a sky full to come close.

With Virginia you have an expert; she is an oracle of knowledge and experience for pregnancy, birth and beyond. Virginia's book ‘The Baby’s Coming' is a must read for anyone interested in pregnancy and birth. She is an Independent Midwife and you can hire her to be your midwife all the way through your pregnancy and birth and afterwards for breastfeeding support and the like. I admire her so much.

I can’t recommend Neighbourhood Midwives highly enough - I have had two incredible birth experiences with them and I wish every woman could go through pregnancy, birth and postpartum care with such positive support and expertise. My babies are so lucky to have had such a wonderful start in life!

An absolute fantastic service with the most absolutely wonderful midwives that completely change perspectives and experience of labour, birth and the post natal period. The care and support they offer is unmatched. If you're just considering this, I whole heartedly recommend, they are so much more than midwives.

Neighbourhood Midwives offer the most wonderful service that an expectant mother could wish for . When I engage them, I was engaging them to support me during giving birth . I was blown away by package of care. Their antenatal care was so nurturing. When it came to the day to give birth, I felt confident in myself and felt secure and safe with my team. Strangely I had not considered the importance of postnatal care, and this was what impressed me most. As an adult woman, I stand on my own 2 feet. To have someone caring and supporting me every step of my journey , through my pregnancy, at my birth, and then for a month that turned into 6 weeks, left me feeling strong and set up for the new chapter of life as a mother. When I gave birth to my first child we were very financially constrained, and going for private midwifery was a significant choice, but I feel that it was the best investment in my well being, and my baby’s well being. I have had 2 beautiful birth experiences at home supported every step of the way. Thank you !

I wanted a Harmony test, for my own peace of mind - Tami was able to come and visit me the next day, and was very friendly and professional, talking me through everything, and not minding my two children being curious as to what was going on. The results came through quickly, and Tami rang me to let me know before emailing them to me.

Angela was so helpful offering breastfeeding advise when I was at the brink of giving up. Would definitely recommend contacting these guys I would certainly use them in the future :)

I used North Surrey Midwives for my second and third births. After a fairly grim first birth in hospital (textbook cascade of interventions, ending in a ventouse delivery), it was a massive relief to have down to earth, evidence based care. In practice this meant antenatal appointments in my own home, at a time to suit me, for as long as I needed; continuity of care from 8 weeks pregnant to 6 weeks post partum (and of course throughout labour and birth); and a birth plan to suit my individual needs - I achieved two home births at approx 41 weeks, which probably would not have been possible in a hospital setting owing to my geriatric age ;) Angela and Tami are lovely, friendly, reassuring people who also happen to be highly qualified and continue to develop their professional qualifications - it was a joy to have them on board with my babies!

Awful and unprofessional service. I went in for an emergency check up in the evening and had to wait for 4 long hours while sitting on a chair with no sympathy from staff. 24 weeks pregnant and suffering from bleeding and back pain. No support whatsoever or medical aid. They took a urine sample and was asked to wait in the waiting area. I was under so much stress not knowing if baby is ok or not. They were more keen to finish off paper work and admin work in the office rather than seeing and taking care of patients. Some pregnant women were given the luxury to wait in air conditioned rooms whereas they asked me to wait on a chair in the corridors. They almost forgot about me so I had to remind them every now and then that I was waiting outside. I have also suffered from a miscarriage in the past so there was a high risk of another miscarriage but they were absolutely careless and neglected me. When I asked why I was not provided the minimum care expected as everyone else, the midwife told me there were no beds available for me. I told her you could have informed me of the long wait for me to arrange visit to another emergency service but her answer was we are not getting anywhere with the conversation... it seems that they get away with mistreating and abusing patients. There was a lady who came before me she was given a bed and I was still waiting outside... they failed to do the basics. I have discharged myself after waiting for 4 hours. They did not even ask if I need painkillers to help me cope with my back pain. I went hospital at 8:30 pm and left hospital at 12 am without seeing a doctor. I discharged myself due to the increased back pain. This made me even more anxious and upset. They told me I have 2 patients ahead of me at 11:45 ?? So they still expected me to wait for another hour waiting. I will be making a formal complaint but will never return to this hospital again. I was maltreated and left hospital physically and emotionally distressed without seeing a doctor after waiting for 4 hours. Just appalling.

Delivered my baby at this hospital in June 2018. Very poor care, cold useless staff. Lazy and do minimal work. Do not listen to your needs and just keep walking off ignoring you. Delivered my baby without any help. Was left in a room with my husband calling for help in agony for over an hour. When someone finally took notice of the pain I was in I had already delivered the head.. This is just a small insight into what they put me through. I'm traumatized. Thank god myself and baby where ok, No thanks to them. I have made a formal complaint and have been told they are investigating. I will not let this go, as I feel they actually put myself and baby in danger. Whoever else has been in this situation I advise you to make a formal complaint. They can not get away with putting people they are supposed to be caring for at risk. I would Honestly NEVER even consider returning to this hospital.

I was unfortunate enough to be referred to the Gynaecology team in that place. Waited for 2.5 hrs without being given any updates on if there's a delay and how long it is. At all time there were 4-5 nurses at the reception drinking tea and having no concerns about the waiting patients. FINALLY I was called in.....by a lady which after asking me few somehow stupid questions admitted that she cannot really answer my question due to being a JUNIOR doctor......now the shocker...she has to call in her senior! And again I start with my diagnosis, treatment options etc to be asked why I don't try other options such as medication (which I've been on and is red flagged on my file due to extremely unpleasant effect) instead of invasive operation. To sum it up....NHS sucks and I cannot wait to be privatized.

My sister was induced into labour although the baby was not ready to come. She was in pain for hours before someone realised the baby was too high and ended up with cesarean. Poor care, unexperienced doctors and unprofessional staff.

Very disappointed for having hired Odette. We spent about 4.5k for having 3 antenatal visits which were fine (my wife felt they were mainly usefull to get to know the person who is going to be at your side during labour) and a labour support which we found totally useless. In fact it was via whatsup and phone calls during most of the labour (ie, the whole preliminary phase and the first few hours of the "established" phase - to give an idea, we were given one-to-one midwife from NHS about 9hrs before Odette thought appropriate to turn up at the hospital! looking backwards, I could find 1000 better ways to spend that amount of money for my wife and child than this. Will definitely stay away from her in any future pregnancy.

As a mother of 3 and a practising Hypnobirthing practitioner. Odette helped me to achieve the home birth of my dreams for my 3rd child! I highly recommend her services. You will not find anybody as highly skilled, knowledgeable and lovely as Odette is. With also teaching courses myself in Hampstead, I wanted to find a local midwife I could recommend to my clients and Odette is the only midwife that I trust. Every single one of my clients have been extremely happy with her services, enabling them to have natural births that have also been memorable. You will not be disappointed!

A lovely place with great professionals! I did two early pregnancy scans due to a vanishing twin and the SAFE test. The quality of service is impressive, staff very friendly and they explained every question I had in detail. It's also great to receive the baby's pictures and videos online straight after each appointment! Highly recommended :)

Thank you The Birth Company for such excellent care. Helen, my sonographer was brilliant and very thorough. My harmony test results came back very quickly. Would definitely recommend them to anyone.

I went into the Birth Company for a harmony scan and am so glad I did, the whole experience was great. When I called to ask about the test, the receptionist was very friendly and helpful and immediately put me at ease. Booking the appointment was very fast and comprehensive too, great customer service all around. Dr Gibb was excellent - professional, explained everything thoroughly, and had a great bedside manner. The location is great and the facilities were very nice - bright, comfortable and relaxed. Receiving the results from my test was again a great experience, very thorough and considerate too. I would refer anyone to come here and if I need to in the future will definitely visit again.

I'm a returning client after several years & i must say how impressed i was with the lovely Carmel's bedside manner & the detailed email with pics & vid of our scan. Their prices seem to be the best too & the fact that they also hold Saturday appointment is always handy. I'm a little saddened that Dr. Donald Gibb is no longer doing deliveries as he delivered our first child but i guess all those years in the business, it's now your time to enjoy the finer things in life as you deserve it.

I was at the Birth Centre for an emergency scan late one evening and Dr Donald Gibb came back after seeing another patient to advise me about birth options, gave me names of consultants and spoke to me long after closing (almost an hour ) without charging me a penny. He was incredibly kind and helpful. The staff at the centre have always been professional and have gone out of the way to accommodate and reassure me whenever I needed it (which was quite a few times). Cannot recommend it enough.

I went to the hospital for a night.I had a bone stuck in my throat and they never help me. The senior nurse that is in charge of the assessment did not assessed me properly. He never even ask me to open my mouth to have a look! I was crying and he was shutting me up and treating me with most disrespect. Because my throat was paining so badly, I was unable to speak properly, so he thought that I was stupid and didn't made fun to talk down to me. He told me that there wasn't any bone in my throat although he never had a look. He put me way back in the last end of the queue to wait to see a doctor! While, I was waiting the pain got really badly and I was crying and screaming then I began coughing extremely heavily and then the big bone came out of my throat. I did show the bone to him and other staff members. There is a lot of stereotype that goes on in that hospital by staff and they treat you according to what they believe your social class is. They do not emphasise, empathy, compassionate or care. They are just cold, frigid and unearthly! It is a very horrible hospital unless you can fit in with their social class! or you comes from a particular address. It would be better if the government get this hospital closed down as opposed to the Charing Cross hospital.

My wife visited here for surgery and generally got a very good experience. When reading reviews I notice that most reviews complain about the “service” as if you are in a restaurant rather than the quality of care. In our experience this was a good hospital. We experienced knowledgeable consultants that make time to see you.

I’m not one for leaving reviews, but I feel I have to in this instance. We had our baby at this hospital after viewing most private hospitals and bought into the brand. We found out the hard way that this hospital is the total opposite of what we thought. I can’t say much more as my wife doesn’t want me to, but I will say there was major negligence from the hospital and please rethink putting your life and baby’s life in their hands.

It is a far cry from what a private hospital should be like. They forgot they are private and we paid for our newborn son to be treated there. We have filed a complaint with the management team but NO ONE bothered to respond. We got an email saying it was their mistake but it didn’t include a single apology. They think they are above the law. I find it a dangerous place where they first try to put the blame on you, for a mistake they made. Happily launched into legal action threats and bullying, even when we had a proof the mistake was on their part. When it was finished and they finally acknowledged that we were right all along, none of the people who harassed us said “sorry”. They treated us with so much incompetence and disrespect. I would never trust them with my son’s life. If you think you will be better off here than anywhere else - think twice. This is horribly run place and you will not get a good care. There are many better private hospitals in London where you will actually get outstanding care. Not here - the patient is not important to these people.
