Open Day at Rangiora Hospital’s Birthing Unit

Rangiora Hospital’s Birthing Unit is celebrating all the babies born there over the last year, with an afternoon tea and open day on Thursday 27 September from 2.30pm until 4pm.

“This is our opportunity to say thanks to the Lead Maternity Carers and all the mothers who chose Rangiora for the birth of their baby,” says Rangiora Hospital’s Charge Midwife, Suzanne Salton.

The open day is also a chance for mothers-to-be to see what the birthing unit can offer them. Friends of Rangiora Hospital will be helping out on the day.

Susanne says “Our unit has great facilities offering high quality midwifery care and breastfeeding support. We have a relaxed atmosphere, a lovely rural setting and good home-cooked food. We also have a shared dining room which encourages new mothers to meet. We’ve had many women make life-long friends here.”
