At the open day, mums-to-be and those planning a baby were invited to come and see what The Park Maternity Centre has to offer.

They were able to view the facilities first hand and meet members of the team while taking a tour.

Also on the agenda was a chat with the midwives and consultants, plus information about the complementary therapy service was on offer.

In addition, families could explore the latest in technological advancements with the opportunity to take a look at the new 4D scanning service which allow parents to see moving 3D images of their babies in the womb.
