"Fantastic Birth Centre"

About: Maidstone District General Hospital

I had my first baby here it was marvellous. The staff are all really lovely, very knowledgeable and caring. Being my first pregnancy I had lots of silly worries and they never made me feel silly or like I was being difficult. I referred myself for the risk assessment and went along one weekend. They made me feel very safe and looked after. Nothing was too much trouble, we even made our visitors tea! They do all your care and I was even able to go back for some help with feeding days later. My husband stayed with me as they have double beds. It's really clean too. The main thing is I felt relaxed and safe. I will be going back for my next baby and recommend everyone to if they can.
