After submitting the form
Once you have submitted an online self referral your appointment dates will be sent to you via post and may take SEVERAL WEEKS.
On receiving your self referral form to tell us you are pregnant we will arrange your first visit with a Midwife. This is known as the ‘booking’ visit. It gives you the opportunity to meet your Midwife and start planning your pregnancy care. This will take place at your local GP Surgery or Children’s Centre, at your home, or in our Antenatal Clinic.
You will be able to discuss the choices available to you at Darent Valley Hospital. This will take a few weeks to arrange.
