Richmond Practice - Pregnancy care and baby scans

Pregnancy care and baby scans


We regret that we are currently only able to provide pregnancy scans and no other pregnancy care. We are currently unable to provide antental consultations.

Our private pregnancy care and baby scan services offer access to a multi-disciplinary team of specialists and maternity care, tailored to your needs. Many mothers have told us how important it is to have continuity of care from consultants and midwives that they have confidence in. They want to be assisted in a comfortable and caring environment, where they are being given the time and support to make the most of this unique experience.

You can access our programme at any stage of the first and second trimester of your pregnancy, or you may wish to continue arranging appointments with our Gynaecologist/Obstetrician for additional services to your NHS care. The practice attends to low risk pregnancies.
