Inside The Lindo Wing Where British Royalty is Born

The young Prince Louis is not the first British royal born in the hallowed Lindo Wing of the famous St Mary’s Hospital. His older brother and sister were also delivered here in 2013 and 2015 respectively, but the wing’s family connection goes back to 1937 and their father and uncle were born in the wing. It’s likely that future births from the Royal Family will utilise the Lindo Wing. If the Royals use Lindo wing for their births, the services provided are top quality, but suites on the wing are costly. A standard stay of just one night costs around $8000, and the deluxe package is expensive at $8500 and prices keep rising. But you get what you pay for when you stay at the Lindo Wing, services of five-star hotel standard, with amenities ensuring comfort, even in Covid times. Rooms have radio, phone, satellite TV and free Wi-Fi and a fully-stocked fridge. After all, you must let your Facebook friends know when the baby is out.

Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust’s maternity services (includes the Lindo Wing), are rated excellent by Care Quality Commission inspectors in the latest inspection report, the only outstanding rating for maternity services in London. Antenatal support includes a range of optional classes and access to a day assessment unit, for anxious parents. A team of world-class obstetric consultants provide the right expertise to support maternity and birth issues. Being connected to a prominent NHS hospital enables the team to respond quickly to complications, with 24×7 emergency care, on-site facilities and care doesn’t stop once the baby is born, as postnatal care packages and the additional baby checks provide total peace of mind. Private midwife-led maternal care packages are aplenty at their sister hospital – the Queen Charlotte’s & Chelsea Hospitals.

Providing excellent accommodation, the Lindo Wing also offers great service for child delivery. The staffs handle all types of pregnancies, even ones with complications. The obstetric unit is the best in the world, and even if something goes wrong, you are in safe hands. When Prince Louis was born, plenty of staff waited outside the delivery room to help out. Only a few midwives and other staff remained in the room with Kate, but about 25 experts were available to lend advice and skills during delivery though none were required actually, but the back-up services were available. The St Mary’s Lindo Wing has had private births for children for many generations of prominent families since the year 1937. You receive upstanding private maternity care of choice from a team of experienced and dedicated midwives and advice from a qualified consultant, who work together to create a personalised and safe care plan that suits both the mother and her baby, for every stage of pregnancy and birth.
