Congratulations on your pregnancy. Please find some helpful links about pregnancy below, including advice on taking folic acid and vitamin D especially in the first trimester.

If you wish to have your baby at Darent Valley Hospital, please click here to book your antenatal care  – you do not need to see a GP to arrange this, but please speak to a GP if you have any questions that aren’t covered in these links or if you have a pre-existing medical condition that you would like advice on.
