Our maternity service is one of the largest in Kent, delivering around 5,000 babies a year. This comprises of obstetric led care on the Delivery Suite and midwife-led care on The Birth Place, as well as actively supporting home birth for women with uncomplicated pregnancies. Women and their partners giving birth at our Trust are offered personalised, support to help them to have the best possible experience of pregnancy, delivery and recovery period. Maternity is available by using our self-referral form in this section.
We know that pregnancy can be a positive but challenging life experience for women and their partners, with new decisions and questions to confront, and that this can feel overwhelming. We hope that the information in this section helps you to make informed choices so that you are able to make the most of your experience. Our team is available to talk with you and answer any questions you may have at any stage of your pregnancy.
