Full Pregnancy Care

Our Full Pregnancy Care package includes all routine pregnancy appointments from your first visit at 7-12 weeks, complete care through labour and birth and then your six-week postnatal examination. This includes all antenatal consultations, some scans and access to your consultant throughout as well as 24/7 telephone support from our midwifery team.

The Full Care Package £8,200 (£8,700 for twin pregnancies)

Pregnancy care from the booking visit at 7-12 weeks including labour and birth care, and your six-week postnatal examination.

Important things to know about the full care package:

  • The Birth Team fee is fixed, whatever kind of birth and however many antenatal appointments you have, and is separate from any other charges. Your hospital charges will vary according to the type of delivery that you have
  • First trimester screening is not included in this package
  • The mid-pregnancy scan and blood test fees are included in your Queen Charlotte’s hospital bill
  • The hospital and any other medical practitioner (i.e. anaesthetist) who treats you privately will bill you separately – This is additional to The Birth Team fee
  • The anaesthetists fee- if you have an epidural- will vary according to the birth you have
  • Queen Charlotte’s Hospital will bill you in pregnancy for your hospital charges. This is additional to The Birth Team fee
  • You need to allow an amount for pathology (i.e. extra blood tests, swabs and urine analysis) charges during pregnancy. We suggest around £600.This is additional to The Birth Team fee
