It's baby boom at the Portland with record breaking deliveries in 2011
16 February 2012
The Portland Hospital experienced a ‘baby boom' last year with record breaking statistic for baby deliveries in 2011 with over 2,230 deliveries! This is a 12% increase on 2010 deliveries. The busiest month of the year for Portland babies was March with 201 births.
47% of the year's deliveries were via vaginal delivery and 53% of deliveries were through medical or elective caesarean. The Midwifery Led team also had a very successful year with an 89% normal delivery (standard vaginal delivery) rate with their ladies who are all second time or subsequent mothers.
Darren Burr, Interim CEO, at The Portland Hospital commented ‘These impressive statistics demonstrate that the Portland is the leading hospital for private maternity care and with the completion of our obstetric renovation programme it makes the hospital an even more comfortable place to stay. I would also like to thank the staff behind these figures and for their continuous care for our patients'.
