The Women’s Wellness Centre makes you and your care a priority. We provide a place where women can come and be cared for at the very highest standards. Our services have been developed specifically to bring confidence, comfort and peace of mind to the physical and mental welfare of women. Trust in us to care for your every need.
Our service is the one of the first of its kind in West London. We are situated in the heart of Chelsea and Fulham, just across from the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital on the Fulham Road.
We offer our patients a broad range of female health services which include:
Private Gynaecology | Midwifery Care | Pregnancy Scanning | Private Maternity Care | Private Pregnancy Services | Sexual Health Check | Well Women Checks | Private Fertility
The Centre combines everything from private out-patient consultations that deal with matters such as pre- and post- natal support and gynaecological services, to complementary therapies and allied practitioners, such as nutritionists, massages, acupuncturists and physiotherapists.
Open on Saturdays, the Women’s Wellness Centre offers the latest 3D/4D scanning technology as well as the new non-invasive prenatal testing for Down’s syndrome “The Harmony™ Test”.

Complementary Therapy

Lisa Barnwell - At Home Treatments of Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Pre & Post Natal Yoga and Mindfulness Coaching

Lisa Barnwell has over 12 years maternity experience as a hands-on therapist. In 2006 she opened London’s first destination clinic for new mums and mum’s-to-be. Her services were chosen to exclusively support Chelsea and Westminster Hospital’s Private Maternity Wing for over 5 years and she has worked closely with many of Keith Duncan’s patients over this time.
In June 2014 she launched Bumps and the Boardroom to start a conversation with Corporations to support the pipeline of female talent through deeper understanding of the pregnancy journey. She helps women transition from a busy and demanding career to becoming the mother they want to be and release fears and anxieties around the birth and early postnatal period. Lisa has extensive experience with bereavement, loss and complicated pregancies. Her packages of unique treatments are delivered at your home and are designed to provide bespoke ongoing support or intensive, immersive experiences.


Ida Nørgaard DC MSc

Ida Nørgaard is a Chiropractor based in Victoria and South Kensington. She has a special interest in caring for pregnant women and also the very young. Chiropractic care may be the answer to your pregnancy related back, neck, and shoulder problems; even headaches, or instability in the pelvis (symphysis pubis) may respond well to chiropractic care.
Ensuring optimal function in the spine and pelvis can help relieve many of the pains and strains that can happen during a pregnancy as well as ensure a speedy recovery and return to normal activity after birth. Gentle manipulation to joints and exercises both to strengthen muscles and also to release tension and tightness are used.

Contemporary family photography

KJ Photographic

Images on this website have been taken by KJ Photographic. Kels Noades is not only a brilliant photographer but a loyal patient of Keith Duncan‘s, having been under his care for all three of her children.
Originally a Fashion Photographer, Kels has been a professional photographer for over 14 years and has worked with a number of big-name publications. Having always loved photographing children and families, setting up KJ Photographic was a natural progression.
Kels is based from her purpose-built studio in Coombe (just off the A3 between Wimbledon and Kingston-upon-Thames) but is also very happy to work on location. As a mother herself, she understands it can be difficult to leave the house with a young baby. Her mother and baby shoots in your own home are particularly popular… or you can even have your newborn photos taken while you‘re still in hospital!
Prints, birth announcement cards, ready-to-hang images and gift vouchers are all available to order and a 10% discount off prints is available to all of Keith Duncan‘s patients*.
