We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our brand new My Body Back Maternity Clinic at St Bart’s, starting in July.
We’ve been running the My Body Back Clinic at St Bartholomew’s Hospital since August 2015, offering cervical screening, STI testing and contraceptive fitting and advice to women who have experienced sexual assault. In this time, women have often told us how isolated they felt throughout pregnancy and labour, and how it had triggered memories and flashbacks of being raped in the past.
The My Body Back Maternity Clinic is the first designated maternity clinic for rape survivors worldwide, and we’ve created a different birthing pathway to ensure that our patients receive tailored, sensitive care. The clinic is run by our founder, Pavan Amara, consultant midwife Inderjeet Kaur, and obstetrician and gynaecologist Rehan Khan.
We’ll be offering the following services:
- Ante-natal classes
- Pregnancy care and examinations
- Care during labour and birth
- Breastfeeding advice
- Specialist advice on ensuring mental wellbeing during labour
- Post-natal gynaecological exams
- Post-natal mental health support
- Pre-pregnancy support for women who want to conceive
Our first maternity clinic will be on Friday 29th July and you can find out more and book an appointment on our maternity clinics page.
