I never thought I would be saying that I enjoyed giving birth to my little girl, but I look back at the experience with very fond and happy memories. And that was all down to the brilliant Birth Team. Richards expertise and humour, coupled with Sarahs warm and comforting support made us feel reassured and safe throughout the whole process. Their level of care was second to none every step of the way; from the initial appointment through to the follow up phone calls checking up on my recovery once we had got home. They are both fantastic people who we will be forever grateful to for bringing our beautiful daughter so safely, calmly and professionally into the world.

Mr S has looked after me through both my pregnancies. Both were very different experiences. My first was an easy ride and he was fabulous, but my second was a different story and where he shone. I was plagued with severe hyperemesis gravidarum throughout my whole pregnancy and Mr Sheridan and his team could not have looked after me better. It being such an underrated experience my GP didn’t take it very seriously however after being admitted into hospital for IV fluids I just solely relied on Dr S to care for me and I’m very lucky I did. All my treatments were explained to me with dignity and all decisions were discussed thoroughly and holistically. He is so invested in his patients and has the greatest bedside manner. The other shinning feature of this doctor is the team he has. He somehow has the most fabulous experts in their fields work with him and that gives you a much more holistic management of care. A great doctor and great man. I’m proud to say that this mans hands were the first to hold my babies.

Mr Sheridan is absolutely outstanding, I cannot praise him highly enough! He is highly professional and very experienced which meant that I was able to trust him completely throughout both of my pregnancies/deliveries, knowing that I was in such capable hands. He is a very warm, kind person and has a brilliant sense of humour which really helped, particularly at times when I was feeling anxious. Furthermore, he explains everything very clearly so you are very clear on what is happening and why. My daughter threw up some green vomit after she was born and had to undergo some tests to ascertain the cause of the problem. This was a very upsetting experience but Mr Sheridan could not have been more supportive which really helped and meant a great deal. I will be forever grateful for all Mr Sheridan has done for us, he's just wonderful!

I have been a patient of Mr Sheridan’s for several years now and I wouldn’t want any other consultant treating me. Richard has both operated and provided ongoing treatment where required and his wonderful bedside manner and chirpy character are most reassuring. I would recommend Richard without reservation to anyone considering or needing this type of medical expertise.

Richard and Sarah are both phenomenal. I've gone to them for both my babies and they've made each experience easy, calm and enjoyable. I instantly felt in safe hands with them; they take time to get to know you, explain everything clearly and make sure that you're happy and confident at all times. They are the best.

I would thoroughly recommend Mr Sheridan to anyone and cannot thank him enough for looking after me.
