With immediate effect, we are currently unable to accept any new transfers of maternity care to Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. If you have any concerns, please speak to your current maternity provider.
Welcome to Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust Maternity Services. Around 6000 babies are born in this Trust per year and we strive to provide women and families with best possible experience of pregnancy and childbirth. We hope that you will find all the information you will require throughout your pregnancy journey on our website, however should you have any questions please contact us.
If you are pregnant and wish to have your care with Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust you need to refer yourself to a midwife at your local GP Surgery. If you wish to transfer your care to us from another Trust, we ask that you do so as early in your pregnancy as possible. This provides us with enough time to ensure that we are able to meet your care needs and preferences, whilst keeping you and your baby safe.
