Sharon Walker, Unit Manager of Helme Chase for University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust (UHMBT), said: “This will be the third open day we have had for mothers-to-be, families and the local community.

“They will have the opportunity to look around the unit and facilities and meet some of the friendly midwives and support workers who work there.  

“There will be representatives from the Positive Birth Group and the local Maternity Voice Partnership who are involved in supporting our mothers-to-be in their birth choices, obtaining feedback and helping to shape and develop our local maternity services.  

“The lead midwife for safe and active births will be in attendance and will be offering aromatherapy hand massage and a chance to discuss birth choices in a relaxed and open environment.  

“There will also be an opportunity to discuss infant feeding with a representative from the Health Visiting team.

“Recent open days have been well received and we look forward to meeting all who attend on the day.”
