At The Birth Team we welcome mothers from any area, at any stage of pregnancy; if you can get here and we have availability, we will see you! Our mothers mostly come from all over North and West London, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire and Middlesex, but we have also had clients from Kent, Norfolk, Berkshire and Scotland.
Spire Bushey Hospital
Herts WD23 1RD
Spire Bushey Hospital in Hertfordshire is where Mr Sheridan sees private antenatal patients; all your regular pregnancy check ups, gynaecology appointments, most blood tests and routine ultrasound scans can be here, which is convenient for women living in North London and the surrounding areas. the antenatal clinic is held on Tuesday afternoons and evenings, with gynaecology clinics on Thursday afternoons and Saturday mornings. If you are unable to come on a Tuesday, you can always come and see Mr Sheridan on Thursday or Saturday.
Antenatal birth preparation and parenting classes are also held here with Sarah Denning. These group classes are usually held on Sunday mornings. Sarah will also take one-to-one sessions here for those that want them.
Mothers do not give birth at Spire Bushey Hospital – all births take place at Queen Charlotte’s and Chelsea Maternity Hospital.
Women who live in or closer to London can have their pregnancy and gynaecology appointments in the private Sainsbury Wing of the Hammersmith Hospital if that is more convenient. Mr Sheridan runs a combined antenatal/gynaecology clinic here on Wednesday mornings. The Sainsbury Wing is the private outpatient department, and is on the same site as Queen Charlotte’s Hospital.

Queen Charlotte’s Maternity Hospital is a world-renowned centre of excellence for maternity care in West London (close to the Westfield shopping centre in Shepherd’s Bush). Approximately 5,500 babies are born there every year, many of them to mothers with complicated pregnancies who have been referred to this prestigious centre from all over the UK.
The hospital was built in 2001, and is a modern, light and airy purpose-built hospital. It has a large, superbly-equipped labour ward, a top level neonatal unit, maternity theatres, an integrated birthing centre and an 8 room private maternity ward (The Sir Stanley Clayton Suite).
Labour and birth takes place on the labour ward at Queen Charlotte’s, and afterwards you will be transferred to your private room on the Stanley Clayton Suite for your postnatal stay.
