Anyone had a Caesarean section at The Portland?

I thought I'd quickly update this thread In case anyone looks at it for help. I had my baby at the Portland on 7th jan & it was an amazing experience. I used Dr Donald Gibb as my consultant, he was great throughout the whole pregnancy. 4 weekly checks & always at the end of the phone when I needed him. I went in to the Portland on Monday 7th & had the baby, we stayed in a suite for 3 nights, coud have stayed longer if we wanted to, my husband stayed with us too. The staff were exceptional & alwa...

Net glad all is ok & LO still head down. Not sure about the birth centre near you but I do know that just because the baby is IVF doesn't mean you are treated any differently to any other pregnancy. So if a woman who conceived naturally has that choice in your area then you will too. Again just cause of IVF as far as I'm aware none of my IVF friends have been told they will be induced on due date because of the way the baby was conceived. Your birth centre sounds great 50% of births in water! Fa...

Oooh Net I bet that feels good for you to have no hangover! Sounds like you've had a lovely day so far. I probably would have had the jab if I didn't have that history but my consultant said it wasn't worth the risk for me personally. Enjoy your TV & Fire afternoon! xxx

Hi net, our posts crossed. glad LO is active. You say you were really busy at work yesterday, I bet that's why you didn't feel her moving so much. She's a little minx isn't she.

Make sure you fit some time in for relaxing missy! XxX

Hi EJ Ooooh a 9lber! That will be interesting Yep I've been suffering with sickness too. Been having tightening & BH since about 22 weeks, I don't mind it now the end is so close. Small price to pay really isn't it! . Also now the baby's resting it's head on my cervix so for the last 2 weeks I've been I agony when I walk. I went to the obstetrician last week because I was worrying & he reassured me all was fine but that the head is so low & is resting there so that's what's causing the pain, the...

Hi Net We finished our nct classes this week. I have to say I didn't really get much from them except breast feeding was great & also the girls I met are fab. Which if I'm honest is what I went for. I think due to our journeys to get here we're very well read & that means there isn't a lot extra that can be taught. but as you say even if you build your support network from it that has to be worth going for doesn't it. Oh bless you re the cervical pain, it's certainly not fun is it! Well we don't...

Hi net The obstetrician confirmed baby is fine, weighs 5lb6oz & everything is good with the little munchkin. However, it's head is extremely low & is resting against my cervix, which is what's causing the pain.there is nothing they can do about it. BUT he thinks it's going to come early as its so low already. So he's booked us in for another check up in 2 weeks time. Then he's going to make a decision, but he thinks he will do the section the week before he was going to. He also said he thinks t...
