"Antenatal care"

About: The Tunbridge Wells Hospital

I am from East Sussex just over the border, so The Tunbridge Wells Hospital is actually the nearest hospital to me. I am currently only 17 weeks pregnant but so far the professionalism and service I have received has been second to none, I have had 5 previous miscarriages, treated at this hospital with dignity and empathy. I have been to the epu on numerous occasions. I am happy this pregnancy is progressing although I was deemed to be at high risk of Downs after my 12 weeks scan and bloods. The screening midwife came down to talk to me and discuss all options , in the end my partner and I decided on the cvs at Kings. We were fortunately that this was arranged very quickly. The results came back clear. I received a follow up call from her, 2 weeks later to see how I was and to say that she had followed up my results. I was really moved by this as I felt this was above and beyond what she needed to do. I am looking forward to giving birth at the hospital judging by the experience I have received so far.
