Pregnancy: Before and After

If you find you have a positive pregnancy test and wish to discuss this result or have an ultrasound to confirm when your baby is expected and that all is well please contact the team and an appointment with Melanie will be made. If a positive pregnancy test has come as a surprise Melanie can help support you make the right decision and put in place a plan that meets your wishes in a timely fashion.

Maybe you have just had a baby and are concerned that things are not as they should be or you just want to talk through your birthing experience. Please feel free to make an appointment at a time that suits and we look forward to welcoming you and your baby. As part of post delivery care we can perform cervical smears and arrange contraception if required as well as ensure that any suturing has healed satisfactorily. This appointment is a good opportunity to discuss pelvic floor exercises as well as have a baseline assessment of your pelvic floor since your birth. Information is available on how to do pelvic floor exercises as well contact details of our team of women’s health physiotherapists who provide both group classes as well as individual assessment and treatment sessions.

Why go private?

This is a very personal choice. I believe it allows you to be seen by the Consultant of your choice at a time of your choosing in a dedicated gynaecology suite supported by specialist nurses. The appointment times are generous allowing you time to discuss your problem. It is always possible to see you quicker than in the NHS.

If you require surgery you will receive consultant delivered care at all times and have the opportunity to recover in a private room. We are happy to put together package prices for self funding procedures.


Appointments are available in our weekly outpatient clinics which run on Wednesdays and Thursdays at Chichester Nuffield.

Emergency appointments are available by arrangement with Shelley Whitbourn on 01243 753023.

Where possible we try to be flexible to accommodate your wishes and ensure you have easy access to excellent care with minimal disruption to your life.
