The Portland Hospital Welcomes Visitors to its Pregnancy Open Day on Sunday 12th June 2016
10 May 2016
The Portland Hospital will be welcoming visitors to its second Pregnancy Open Day of the year on Sunday 12th June 2016. For parents-to-be, it offers an exclusive chance to meet with the consultants, midwives and breastfeeding specialists at the largest private maternity unit in the UK.
Among the specialists visitors will meet include consultants Dr Penelope Law, Dr Shazia Malik and Mr Joseph Iskaros, who featured in the recent BBC documentary ‘Five Star Babies: Inside the Portland Hospital’. They will be on hand to offer advice and information about the world class facilities at the hospital and answer any questions visitors may have about giving birth at The Portland.
Visitors will also be able to tour the maternity floors, nurseries and delivery suites, with examples of the 3D/4D ultrasound services that can show real time moving and still images of babies in the womb.
Those attending will also learn about the dedicated antenatal and postnatal classes available to parents-to-be, and mums-to-be will also have the opportunity to have a ‘Bump Photo’ taken courtesy of Imagethirst photography, leaving with one of our complimentary ‘goodie bags’.
Phoebe Martin, Maternity Services Advisor, says: “Our pregnancy open day offers a fantastic opportunity for all parents-to-be to view the facilities at The Portland and meet members of the obstetric services departments. Visitors will have the opportunity to meet the teams who work together to provide our obstetric service, everyone from our lactation specialist and nutritionists to consultant obstetricians. Our midwives will take you on a tour of the labour and post-natal floors to show you the facilities and show you what makes The Portland a very special place to have your baby.”
