Twin delivery services at Darlington Memorial Hospital have been temporarily suspended.
It means all mums expecting twins who are currently booked to deliver at the hospital will now have to travel to James Cook Hospital in Middlesbrough instead.
It's after a review made a series of recommendations on improvements to be made.
Sue Jacques, Chief Executive at County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust said:
Patient safety and the consistent delivery of high quality care are our priorities.
We promote an open culture of reporting and learning and regularly monitor serious and adverse incidents across all of our clinical services.
As part of this monitoring and in response to feedback from our clinical teams, an independent review was commissioned to seek assurances on safety and identify any areas where improvements could be made within the Trust's maternity services."
