The maternity unit at Tunbridge Wells Hospital has a 17 bed antenatal ward as part of its antenatal services available to women.
Reasons for admission can include:
- Raised blood pressure
- Complications developed during the pregnancy
- Induction of labour
We also provide a triage facility, which is a 4 bedded area accessible 24 hours a day to antenatal women. This is an assessment area where women can be seen if they have any concerns regarding their pregnancy or baby’s movements or in the early stages of labour, for example.
