A Little Bit About Us
Sheffield Private Pregnancy Care is run by Professor Anumba Dilly and Mr Jokhi Roobin, Consultants in Obstetrics and specialists in Maternal and Fetal Medicine at the Jessop Wing Maternity Unit in Sheffield, part of the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.
Together, they have nearly 40 years experience in women’s health care and pregnancy.
They are accredited with the Fetal Medicine Foundation in London for the assessment of the nuchal translucency in the first trimester and have had extensive experience of high risk and normal pregnancy.
We provide a flexible package of antenatal care for women who wish to have the reassurance of seeing highly trained specialists who would provide a wide range of services from the pre-conceptual period through to labour and delivery. Packages are available for those who wish to have care from early in pregnancy through to the end as well as those who would like the reassurance of some additional scans in the latter part of their pregnancy. We offer a relaxed environment with patients given time for consultations and visits at their convenience as well as the latest in ultrasound technology to see their baby as it grows and develops.
