To book your pregnancy with Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust you do not need to visit a GP*. Please complete this form once you are at least 5 weeks pregnant. Unfortunately, due to high levels of demand on our maternity services, the Trust can only support bookings from pregnant people or women who are under 34 weeks gestation and have an address which is outside of the Trust’s catchment area**.
*We suggest you see your GP if you are on medication or have pre-existing conditions.
**If you are unsure whether you live in MTW’s maternity services catchment area, please contact the midwifery booking team – email@example.com
If you are over 34 weeks gestation and have an address outside of the Trust’s catchment area and wish to be booked at one of our birth centres only, please complete a self-referral form.
