Mercy's passion for midwifery grew after she had her own children. She said: "It's a privilege to work in midwifery and I feel blessed to be part of The Portland family."
Pia Ramsay joined The Portland Hospital in 2013 having previously worked at St Mary's and Chelsea and Westminster Hospitals. Pia is a registered midwife and has delivered more than 300 babies during her career.
Regina Frances Curran
Regina Curran started working as a midwife at The Portland Hospital in January 2000. She had previously worked in women’s health at the hospital. She has also worked in the NHS and overseas in Jeddah, Jersey and Ireland. Regina is a Registered General Nurse and a Registered Midwife and trained in Ireland.

Having started her nursing career in 1983, Regina has worked in women’s health since the early 1990s and has a broad range of clinical skills and extensive experience in all birth settings. She says: “I don’t deliver babies, I empower women to. In my career I’ve been lucky to be involved in hundreds of women’s pregnancy and birth experiences.”
Teresa has worked at The Portland Hospital for 5 years. For most of this time she has been the Childbirth Educator – helping women to prepare for a positive birth through antenatal classes. Teresa comes from New Zealand where she had her 4 babies (who are now all grown-up) and where she inherited her passion for rugby and the outdoors.
In 1992 Teresa studied for and gained a Diploma in Childbirth Education. She said "This is my passion and where I feel I can make a difference to women on their birthing journey."
In 2003 Teresa fulfilled a lifetime dream to become a midwife and achieved this in Limerick, Ireland. She said: "I have had the absolute privilege of 'catching babies' in New Zealand while working as an obstetric nurse, in Irish hospitals and the outback of Australia – a most challenging and interesting experience working with Aboriginal women. People often ask how many babies I have delivered – an impossible question to answer apart from saying 'one at a time'"
