A public meeting will be held this morning to discuss how maternity care will operate at The Friarage Hospital in Northallerton.
It follows a decision last week by the hospital to scale back paediatric and maternity services.
The existing service, run by consultants, will become midwife-led.
The changes will start in October.
Today's meeting is being held at The George Hotel in Northallerton and has been organised by NHS Hambleton, Richmondshire and Whitby Clinical Commissioning Group.
