At Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust we want to help  you to have as straightforward a birth as possible, as this has been shown to be better for the health and emotional well-being of mothers and babies.  Every labour and birth experience is different for each woman, baby, and birth partner, but we hope you will find some of the tips in these leaflets useful and that it will enable you to take a very active role in your care during labour.

Read our positions in labour leaflet to help make your labour quicker and easier.
