Darent Valley Hospital Maternity services
Over 5,000 women chose to have their babies and postnatal care at Darent Valley Hospital Birth Centre and Delivery Suite. Our skilled team of obstetricians, midwives, and specialist teams work together to help women have a positive pregnancy, birth and postnatal experience in whatever setting they choose.
Professional Midwifery Advocates
Professional Midwifery Advocates aim to uphold the safety of all mothers and their babies.
The PMA focus is on developing, supporting and maintaining safe, effective midwifery practice, dealing with professional issues arising through practice and supporting women in their birth choices.
Maternity Voices Partnership
Maternity Voices Partnership is a team of women and their families, commissioners and providers (midwives and doctors) working together to review and contribute to the development of local maternity care.
Visitor and Birth Partner Information
We appreciate it is very difficult to predict when your labour will start. Therefore we kindly ask that all partners who will be supporting women in labour have a LFT test kit ready to use once labour has started regardless of your intended place of birth.
