A maternity services open day will be held by The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SaTH) on Saturday 13 May to allow those who are pregnant, considering parenthood or who have an interest in maternity services to learn more.

Taking place from 11am-4pm at the Shropshire Women and Children’s Centre, part of the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford, the maternity services open day will offer guided tours of the Trust’s Antenatal Ward, Delivery Suite, Midwife Led Unit and Postnatal ward throughout the day. Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet maternity services teams, participate in Q&A sessions with midwives, watch simulation training and visit information stalls on areas including antenatal and postnatal care, labour and birth. The Maternity Voices Partnership (MVP) Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin will also be hosting a stall with support and information for those who would like to become involved in helping to shape maternity services at SaTH.

There is no need to register to attend the event, visitors are invited to turn up on the day. Children are welcome to attend, however will be unable to join any tours.

Annemarie Lawrence, Director of Midwifery, said: “We’re really excited to be opening our doors to the public.

“I encourage anyone who would like to know more about what it’s like to be pregnant and have a baby under the care of SaTH to come and meet our midwives, ask questions and experience, first-hand, the improvements we have been making within our modern and welcoming service.
