Last month, births and post-natal in-patient care at the town's maternity unit were suspended and a review of services began.
Since then, a protest group called Save Berwick Maternity Unit has held a rally and drawn up a petition.
The Berwick MP, Sir Alan Beith has told the House of Commons that the suspension has caused 'absolute fury' in the community. He said as a result, women were being forced to travel up to fifty miles to Wansbeck General Hospital or to Borders General Hospital to give birth.
Sir Alan said that with a new hospital planned for Berwick, suspicions were growing that it would not include maternity services.
The Minister for Public Health, Dan Poulter told MPs the decision to suspend services in Berwick had been a 'difficult one for the local trust'. He said he would take a close interest in the outcome of its review.
The Northumbria Healthcare Trust says deliveries at Berwick General Hospital were suspended because the number of births there had fallen; this meant midwives were not receiving enough regular experience.
The Trust added that any long term changes to maternity services would require full public consultation.
