A public meeting is underway in Thirsk in North Yorkshire as health bosses explain proposals to change children's services at a hospital nearby.
If the plans go ahead, overnight paediatric care and special baby care may move from the Friarage Hospital in Northallerton to a bigger hospital in Middlesbrough.
Senior doctors say the proposed changes are all about safety and would not threaten the future of the Friarage, which serves parts of rural North Yorkshire.
Campaigners say it will mean families will have to travel further.
