Kensington Midwives are Joining UK Birth Centres
We are very happy to announce that from January 1st 2014 we, Mary-Rose Pignatelli and Annabel Athill, have joined the UK Birth Centres’ team.
From February 2014 litigation comes into force for the protection of mothers, babies and the midwives who assist them. This litigation makes it a legal requirement for any individual, or company providing midwifery services in the UK to have appropriate insurance.
UK Birth Centres has £10m level of cover and their underwriters are one of the largest in the world and global leaders of medical insurance.
Kensington Midwives and UK Birth Centres believe in making sure all our expectant mothers have the very possible experience throughout their pregnancy and birth. Part of this is the knowledge that their midwife is insured and the care they are receiving is supported and approved in every way.
Ensuring we always provide the very latest in private maternity services means we consider our insurance as an extremely important part of the care our clients receive.
From now on all our clients will register with us through UK Birth Centres, who will provide all the paperwork, billing and necessary contracts for us. We will continue to provide the very best care here in Kensington, Notting Hill, Bayswater, Chelsea, Knightsbridge and Fulham to our local mothers and their families. If you are choosing a NHS birth we will compliment your NHS care with our additional antenatal appointments, be with you throughout the birth, and visit you postnatally for up to 6 weeks. Of course, we also offer this additional care to anyone who has chosen to have a private birth and would like to be visited at home postnatally.
Please have a look at the UK Birth Centres website www.ukbirthcentres.com and all prices and packages are detailed there. Either give us a ring for a chat, or contact Linda Bryceland and her team who will explain all the options we can provide for your pregnancy, baby’s birth and postnatal care. As always, we are happy to meet you in Kensington or Notting Hill for an initial totally free consultation before you decide on the path you take.
Happy New Year and Best Wishes for 2014
With Very Best Wishes for 2014 from Kensington Midwives and the UK Birth Centres team.
