Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust provides the highest and safest standards of care for mothers and babies.

Depending on your pregnancy you can choose to have your baby at home, in our acclaimed birth centre at Maidstone Hospital, or on our consultant-led labour ward at Tunbridge Wells Hospital.

Early booking is recommended in pregnancy at around eight to 10 weeks to ensure that screening tests can be offered in a timely manner. This appointment is with the community midwife who can be contacted via your GP surgery. It is not necessary to see your GP first.

The options for place of birth will also be discussed with you at your booking visit and throughout your pregnancy. Download our patient information leaflet for more information.
