Meet the midwife day at Tameside

Tameside Hospital’s maternity department is holding an open day next month, where expectant mums from Glossopdale can meet the midwifery team.

On September 7, from 11.30am to 3pm, mothers-to-be can will be able to go on tours of the facilities at the Ashton-under-Lyne hospital and learn which way a baby is lying in the womb, using a mannequin.

There will also be stalls offering information about support groups for families after miscarriage or the loss of a baby, as well as details about midwifery courses.
