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 please refer yourself using our Maternity Self-referral form.

Unfortunately, we are unable to support Home Births at this time, due to significant midwifery staff shortages. This decision will be reviewed regularly and the information on this page will be updated when our home birth service is reinstated.

We apologise for any disappointment this causes and regret the impact on your choice of birth place. We continue to support out of hospital births, where suitable, in one of our birth centres in Maidstone and Crowborough.

We are booking birth place assessments for all ‘low risk’ pregnant people who are more than 34 weeks. Please speak to your community midwife or phone our birth centres directly to arrange a birth place assessment or to discuss out of hospital birth options.

Polite reminder:

Unfortunately, at this moment in time, children are not allowed to attend your appointments due to social distancing measures being in place.

We would like to thank all the families for their continued support.

You may find ‘Your Pregnancy, Your Choice’ useful to read.

We endorse the use of the Baby Buddy App during pregnancy that you can access for free here.
