Around 6000 babies are born in the Trust each year, and we strive to provide women, birthing people and families with the 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, if 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.

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

News and updates

We have unfortunately made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend water births within the maternity unit at Tunbridge Wells Hospital. This is due to an issue with water pressure which is affecting the time required to fill a pool and maintain the water temperature at a safe level. We expect this problem to be rectified in the coming weeks and we will make every effort to minimise the impact to people in labour.
Please note birthing pools are still available at both Maidstone and Crowborough Birth Centres.
If you have any queries or concerns please speak to your community midwife.

We are booking birth place assessments for all ‘low risk’ women and 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 time, children are not allowed to attend your appointments.

We would like to thank you for your continued support.
