Hi Emily,

I am not sure if this is the right place to post this but hope you can advise. I am nearly 13 weeks pregnant and have just been diagnosed with antiphospholipid syndrome. I am wondering which hospital to choose for delivery (and antenatal care). I have asked my midwife who advised to simply go for the one nearest my home, which seems to make sense.  But seeing that I am now considered high risk, would it be better to choose a hospital with specialists in APS, even if that means travelling further?

And how can I find out about other womens' birth experiences at different hospitals; statistics such as number of c-sections, forceps delivery etc? Is there a website?

Thanks so much and happy New Year!

Hi,

There is a website called dr foster, that shows statistics on hospitals, for all aspects of care, although there is a bit of controversy on where they base their information on.
I would go to the hospital nearest you, you will be able to speak to the consultant, and usually they all have different areas that they specialise in, so there may be one that has particular intensive knowledge of aps. If you don't feel at ease after you've spoken to them, it's fine to change if you want to, you don't have to be bound to that particular hospital.

All the best,

Emilycaitlin xx
