About: Medway Maritime Hospital

I cannot thank the staff enough in the maternity departments. My waters broke 24 hours previous to going into hospital and baby's movements were reduced so I was advised to come in by MCU, then moved to Pearl Ward for an induction and finally to the Birth Place when labour spontaneously started. As I first time mum I was fairly anxious and found that every member of staff (no matter how busy) had time to answer questions and reassure me whenever I started to doubt myself. I cannot praise the staff in The Birth Place enough, they were fantastic and giving birth here was like a home from home. Round the clock care and so supportive, even once we took little one home.
