A meeting to discuss the future of Berwick Hospital's maternity services has been held today.
The hospital's maternity services were suspended in August of last year due to a lack of people using the service and concerns over safety.
The trust has since put forward two options for the future of Berwick's maternity services - either to re-open the unit as it is but with more midwives so they can rotate and get more experience, or to have a 24 hour on-call service so they can give birth at home or in a special birthing room
