PLEASE CLICK HERE FOR CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION

As of Monday 16 November 2020, if you are attending a hospital appointment for either Ultrasound Scan or Antenatal Clinic, there will be the opportunity for you to receive the Flu and Whooping Cough vaccinations.

There will be an allocated Midwife in the clinic waiting area who will ask if you wish to be vaccinated. If you have not been approached, please wait until the Midwife is free and you will be offered the vaccinations.

Please understand that, due to social distancing and infection control measures, there may be a short wait. We hope to extend this service to other areas in the coming weeks, increasing your opportunity to be vaccinated.

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.

Please note that we aim to reply to your referral within 14 working days. As of 1st October- we are dealing with a large volume of referrals which is resulting in a delay in contact from the community midwives. Please bear with us and we will process your referrals as quickly as possible.

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. It may be helpful for you to look at the options available throughout your pregnancy, including where to give birth before you meet your midwife.

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