Refer to Maternity Services

Women are now able to self-refer for maternity care electronically via the East Kent Hospitals website.

Seeing a midwife at an early stage will ensure you are given all the information that you need right from the start to help you make the right choices. There are routine screening tests that need to be undertaken, so an early appointment with a midwife will enable you to discuss these tests and plan appropriately.

There is a section highlighted ‘self-referral’ – please fill in as requested.  Your referral will be dealt with during office hours: Monday – Friday, a reply acknowledged which in turn will give you access to our MOMA app.  My Own Maternity App.  This will have details and information relating to your pregnancy.

For any urgent queries, please contact Maternity: 01227 864152

When you are about 10 weeks pregnant, a midwife will either call or email you to arrange a booking appointment, which usually takes place in the 10th or 11th week of pregnancy.  At this appointment you will also receive details of your 12-week scan.
