Private Birth in London 

We welcome self-funding, international and health insured patients for our comprehensive maternity care package.

 

Dr Tezcan offers comprehensive packages that cover your antenatal and birth care.

 

Most women would like to have pregnancy care including antenatal-delivery-postnatal care, however some women may only  want  to have  delivery. The antenatal care includes regular antenatal assessments and consultations accompanied by ultrasound scans at all antenatal visits. 

 

Full pregnancy care package:

  • A booking appointment and consultation
  • Initial antenatal appointment (refunded if paid prior to booking package)
  • Antenatal appointments including specialist fetal medicine scans at early pregnancy, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40 and 41 weeks. There may be fewer appointments if this is not your first pregnancy
  • Delivery (both caesarean and vaginal delivery)
  • Postnatal check
  • Dr Tezcan's 24/7 personal mobile contact number 

 

For private health insured patients; to book through your insurance please contact your insurer and obtain a pre-authorisation code for antenatal visits and delivery. Please advice us of this code together with your insurance company contact details and policy number. Please ensure your policy fully covers both our fees and the hospital fees.


Why choose us?
Having private obstetric care allows you to know your obstetrician from the earliest stage of your pregnancy. You’ll get the chance to meet most qualified and experienced obstetrician at each and every appointment, which prevents receiving conflicting or even confusing information.

 

During your pregnancy, private care allows you to have direct access to your consultant obstetrician. As a private patient you will also have more flexibility regarding appointment times and a more efficient handling of any your queries and concerns.

 

Over the course of your ante-natal appointments you will develop a personal and close relationship with your consultant obstetrician and this helps significantly when you’re in labour. Knowing that you have one of the most highly experienced and trained  clinician at hand can make labour a lot less stressful.

 

Also having your own room and bathroom is really important when you have just given birth and want to enjoy those special moments with your new baby and family.

 

If you would like to enjoy the comfort of having all your antenatal appointments locally close to your home/workplace with flexible appointments (late appointments and weekend appointments) at our state of the art clinics where we are able to provide pathology tests (including genetic tests) and all the specialist consultant ultrasound scans.

 

Miss Berrin Tezcan (Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist and Fetal Medicine Specialist) provides unique maternity care. All your antenatal appointments can be scheduled at our Dulwich or Harley Street Clinics . Delivery will be at the Portland Hospital, a state of the art fully private maternity hospital in the heart of London.


Why choose Portland Hospital?
Portland Hospital is the only fully private maternity hospital in the UK, with excellent midwifery and consultant care, meaning you need not worry about the delays in your care in labour. 
It is a well-known disadvantage to have your care in the private maternity units within the NHS facility due to most of these units not having separate theatre facilities. Therefore in case of emergencies, these private patients must wait in the theatre waiting list together with an increasing number of NHS patients and complex cases. This can cause incidents at times of emergencies and affects the care that you will have privately.

 


Carrying and birthing a baby is one of the most beautiful things in life, but it can put a lot of strain on you and your body. Proper maternity care from the first ultrasound, to any post-natal services can provide much-needed support to an expecting mother.

 

Here at Women’s Health Dulwich, we are proud to offer maternity care to patients from Dulwich, Wandsworth, Bromley, Clapham, Blackheath and the surrounding community that can provide exactly that.

 

Whether you have recently discovered that you are pregnant, or your due date is quickly looming, we can still offer a range of maternity care Dulwich services to guide you through the remaining months of your pregnancy and provide care after the birth.

 

To ensure that our patients are cared for with complete dedication and professional quality treatment, we provide comprehensive packages that cover as much of your antenatal and birth care as you see fit. 

 

We provide private maternity care in South London and Central London.

 

Dr Berrin Tezcan's private maternity care packages are structured as follows:

 

·  Comprehensive Maternity Care Package – This package will include antenatal care, prenatal screening, care during labour (delivery takes place at the Portland Hospital) and post-natal care. We will personally perform all ultrasounds scans throughout your pregnancy and will remain accessible throughout pregnancy and following delivery  for all maternity care Dulwich patients. 


·  Care For Labour & Delivery – This care will cover any women who may decide to opt for private maternity care late in their pregnancy and will include care during labour (delivery takes place at the Portland Hospital) and after delivery. 


·  Ultrasounds Scans In Pregnancy – Your private doctor will perform all scans throughout pregnancy, which include: early viability, nuchal translucency, dating scans, ultrasound screening for fetal anomalies and growth surveillance, 3D/4D and fetal sexing scans. 


·  Prenatal Screening – These are comprehensive screening tests for common chromosomal and fetal abnormalities, such as Down’s Syndrome, and include an early scan performed at 11-14 weeks.


·  Pre-natal Diagnostic Tests – This package offers a definitive diagnostic test to women at high risk following the prenatal screening, or to women who opt for a definitive test independent of the screening test results. These include chorionic villus sampling (CVS) and amniocentesis.

 

Please note, while we provide maternity care to patients from Wandsworth, Clapham, Bromley, Dulwich and the surrounding area, the delivery of your baby will be at the Portland Hospital. We do not have facilities in-clinic for the delivery of your baby. Please contact us for further information on our obstetrics care packages. 

 

Experienced & Localised Maternity Care Serving Central & South East London

 

Pregnancy is an incredibly personal experience and while millions of women go through the entire process without a single issue, we are here to provide high-quality care and the relevant tests and scans to ensure that this remains the case throughout the pregnancy and into post-natal care. Here at Women’s Health Dulwich, we are proud to offer comprehensive maternity care in South London to ensure that any woman looking for private maternity care in Dulwich, Wandsworth, Clapham, Bromley, Blackheath and the surrounding community will find a comfortable and warm experience here with our team.

 

Dr Berrin Tezcan is dedicated and highly experienced in her role as a consultant obstetrician and fetal medicine specialist, so you can rest assured that you are in safe and knowledgeable hands when opting for our care. What’s more, she is happy to look after women who have private medical health insurance that covers all or part of their pregnancy care. If you are unsure about the level to which your policy covers you, please speak to your insurance company. If you’d like assistance with your health insurance policy queries, we are happy to deal with insurance companies directly. Simply provide full details of policy numbers, authorisation or claim numbers and claim forms if they are required. 

 

UK insurance companies do not usually cover private maternity care. In the unusual circumstance that you qualify for cover, only a proportion of the total fee is usually refunded. As with most private practitioners, private pregnancy care is undertaken on the basis that any fees are settled directly. Thereafter, we will assist you to recover any funds owed to you by the insurance company.

NV I would highly recommend Dr Berrin Tezcan, she was the consultant for my maternity. She followed the process in a way i felt i was very well informed of all the steps, and she watched carefully and with care all details of my health and the baby’s evolution. I really appreciate her support and the shared knowledge through out the process. 

 

GB Berrin is amazing! She was with us every step of the way and feels more like a friend than a doctor, though she remains totally professional at all times. She is very knowledgeable and reassuring and made the whole experience straightforward and relaxing. We are very lucky to have found her!

 

OM So grateful for an amazing experience. Doctor Berrin is trully professional and passionate doctor. She took me at a very short notice, after I had traumatic experience with NHS. Me and my partner are so happy with the whole experience. If you are looking for fear free delivery of your baby doctor Berrin is the one to choose.

 

SBU Dr. Tezcan is truly an amazing doctor! Throughout my pregnancy, from the very early stages until the last, she was always reassuring, confident and very knowledgable. As first time parents, we always felt that we were in very capable and knowledgable hands. We could comfortably consult her all of our questions and concerns. She was always reachable and always very warm and friendly. We always trusted her sound judgement and felt at ease throughout the 9 months. It was a pleasure going to each appointment and following the progress of our baby with her. She always made us feel at ease, informed us accurately and guided us to make sound judgments. We are very lucky to have found her. We consider her part of the family and we would highly recommend her to all expectant mums!

 

GM Dr. Tezcan is truly amazing! Throughout the pregnancy she was always confident and reassuring, but also personable and warm. As a first time mum, I had a lot of questions and Berrin always took the time to answer and send me all the information I needed. We trusted her judgement and advice from day 1 and felt so at ease in her calm and capable hands. Berrin and her team were so responsive and accommodating also in terms of logistics and scheduling, which helped a lot as two working parents. They also always made sure we had all of the information we needed to make any decisions along the way. When it came time to deliver our baby, we could not have asked for a better person to be with us. With a smile on her face, Berrin was calm and warm, but also decisive and confident when it came time to make important decisions during the delivery. We are so lucky to have found Berrin and consider her part of the family! We cannot wait to have another baby with her again. Highly recommend her to any other expectant mums!

 

EK I've had an amazing experience with Miss Berrin Tezcan. The c-section she performed was only slightly uncomfortable and the whole pregnancy experience made me feel safe and secure. Thank you Berrin 

 

SD Miss Tezcan really gave us a fantastic experience all the way.

 

IGM  I was Dr Berrin Tezcan’s patient for my antenatal + the delivery and over the 9 months pregnancy and delivery, she has been absolute star and on top of everything. She was very professional, her experience and care made me and my husband very relaxed during the pregnancy and the birth. I gave birth in Portland hospital based on Dr Tezcan’s recommendation and before the birth, i was thinking whether i should look at other hospital options but Dr Tezcan was right, the hopsital was also great. Whole experience was very pleasant and actually we really enjoyed the delivery which is usually very nervous for everyone else :) We live in Hertfordshire but i still travelled to Dulwich sometimes when i was late to book her availability in her Harley str clinic. Worth all the travel for appointments when it comes to such an important topic, your baby if you are happy with your doctor. I had elective c section and i have the smallest cut, thanks to Dr Tezcan as you don’t want a big cut scar as a woman and she is also very good with that beside being really on top of everything during your pregnancy. She has bern very communicative, easy to reach and responsive. Thank you very much for everything! definitely going with the same clinic, same doctor next time !  

 

FFT Dr Berrin is an amazing professional, always available, I couldn't be happier with all her support. Felt very lucky to have found her!
