Our Maternity Service
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.
Depending on a woman’s pregnancy and individual needs and circumstances, our patients can choose to have their baby in our Midwifery-led Birth Centre, in our Delivery Suite staffed by obstetricians, midwives and specialists including anaesthetists; or at Home.
Throughout her maternity journey, our patients receive continuity of carer, which means they will see the same midwife and clinical team continually throughout pregnancy, birth and postnatal period. Our team has a named obstetrician, providing expertise for women who require obstetric input. Our team-based approach enables the co-ordination of our patient’s care to ensure all the needs of a woman and her baby are met.
