2018 saw the opening of The Birth Company’s new state of the art pregnancy and gynaecological scanning clinic in Alderley Edge. Led by Dr Donald Gibb, Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist who founded the successful Harley street clinic in London, supported by Kate Richardson, Director of Ultrasound.
The Birth Company is delighted to have space in the newly refurbished Festival Hall building at Alderley Edge above the local GPs surgery. This they have fully developed as a purpose built facility for ultrasound and medical examination. In a modern, attractive, clean environment couples can feel completely at ease having high quality pregnancy, gynaecological and fertility ultrasounds performed by advanced sonographers with the clinical backup of consultants. Scans over and above the NHS provision are provided at all stages of fertility treatment and pregnancy.
Since 2012 The Birth Company has been a leader in the provision of non-invasive prenatal testing for abnormalities in the baby. Currently we provide the following tests: Panorama, Harmony and SAFE (also called Iona) tests. This allows couples to have more information about the health of their pregnancies. We also provide short notice early pregnancy assessment scans much appreciated by anxious parent to be!
The Birth Company is developing links with NHS and other private providers in the area.
' Professional and reassuring 'Helen Campbell
The sonographer was ready as soon as I arrived, and she was extremely calming, personable and professional. The scan and blood test where efficient without feeling rushed and all very easy. These appointments can feel uneasy and make you feel anxious but I felt reassured and in professional hands the whole time
I saw Kate throughout my first pregnancy and am now doing so again with my second. She is absolutely amazing, she explains everything really clearly, and has answered all sorts of bizarre questions and worries I have had. On top of being clinically excellent she is also just the loveliest person and always a pleasure to see.Sarah Elliott
We had the harmony test with the Birth Company and had a reassurance scan with sonographer Kirsty McGarry who was absolutely lovely and really put our minds at rest. We had been scared by our NHS dating scan and left feeling like there was something wrong. We explained the situation and was treated very professionally and with good care. Also speedy appointments also as I had phone in the morning and got an appointment by afternoon. So thankful.Ashley and Tom
Really friendly, efficient service. Great experience overall. Had the Panorama. My appointment was with Kate who was absolutely fantastic. The results came really quickly. Have a comparison with private healthcare elsewhere and must say that The Birth Company was just how I would like to be treated when I pay for medical services - attentively, calmly, friendly, in a pleasant environment that doesn't look like hospital. Top marks!Anna

The Birth Company has been excellent, providing timely scans and blood tests during my IVF treatment abroad. Staff are always friendly and extremely efficient. I would highly recommend coming here.
' Professional and friendly 'Lyndsey Dilla
When I first contacted the Birth Company I spoke to Danielle. She was fantastic. She went above & beyond to put me at easy & make the journey from Kent as stress free as possible. Every staff member that myself and my husband have come into contact with have been approachable, professional and friendly. Kate scanned me the first time and put me completely at easy. Lisa on reception is professional and very approachable. Highly recommended
' Highly recommended 'Emelie
Donald was so lovely! I was so nervous as I have a bad history and he was super quick and confirmed my baby's heartbeat as quickly as he could. He spent time showing me the baby and the anatomy and it was the best money I have ever spent! The reception girls were lovely too - considering they deal with babies day in day out they were super excited for me! Thank you so much one and all! If only I lived in London and could have all my scans with you!
