Families with young children and expectant mothers are invited to join midwives at Ormskirk hospital on Saturday 24 September for this year’s Baby Day.

Baby Day will run from 10am to 1pm at Ormskirk hospital and is a chance for mums-to-be and families with young children to see what support their midwives provide throughout pregnancy, and how Southport, Formby and Ormskirk NCT can support parents during pregnancy and beyond.

On the day there will be tours of the maternity unit, information stands, and the chance to meet the community midwife team. There will also be a cake stall, raffle and teddy weighing for children. Local baby groups and business will also be in attendance to promote their services and answer any questions you might have.

Catherine Boyle, Consultant Midwife, said: “Baby Day is an excellent opportunity for expectant mums to come and see the facilities here and meet the midwives. There’s a lot for families with young children to see and do too!

“We host this event every year with the NCT who will also be hand to offer advice and guidance on how they can help families through pregnancy and following the birth.”

Baby Day is free to attend and there’s no need to book. The first 30 families arriving on the day will even receive a goody bag.
