Lagan Valley MLU Open evening success


The Midwifery Led Unit (MLU) open evening held recently at Lagan Valley Hospital was a great success. Over 100 people attended and provided positive feedback through questionnaires, describing the service as “Professional and caring.”


The open evening showcased the services offered in the unit. Everyone enjoyed seeing the relaxing Birthing rooms and hearing about Active Birth, Hypnobirthing, Reflexology provided free by the midwives, Breastfeeding Classes and Alcohol and Smoking Cessation advice. Queens University were also present to meet students keen to have a career in midwifery. Another favourite stand was the new "Getting Ready for Baby" classes which teach new mums and dads about their baby's brain development during their first three years of life.

Red Cross attended to demonstrate resuscitation and other infant emergencies. Those who attended said they would be happy to use this wonderful service and expressed their feelings for the service, describing it as “knowledgeable, holistic, relaxing and compassionate.”

If anyone missed the open evening, there is always a warm welcome to any couples who wish to use the service. Phone and arrange to come and visit on (028) 9263 3534.
