"Maternity Wards - Aspen Ward, Delivery Suite"

About: Darent Valley Hospital

I had my daughter in the hospital on the 27th of December. During my antenatal care, I made a decision to self-refer myself to DVH for labour and I did not regret. Starting from my prenatal care all the way through to postnatal recovery, I have had wonderful midwives and doctors. I opted for an epidural which was given very soon after I was in established labour, and it meant a lot to have the same midwife all the way through until the actual delivery. She was a great support. I am also grateful to the very professional and honest doctor who made me suffer, but did not let me have a C-section. Big thank you to all the lovely maternity staff I met throughout my stay at DVH.
