Our Reflections team offer a midwifery-led debriefing service. It provides you and your family the opportunity to meet with a midwife to discuss your experience of pregnancy and birth with our Trust.
Our Reflections service aims to provide you and your family with clarity and understanding around birth. It offers time and space for people to express their feelings about their birth experience.
We accept referrals to our Reflections service from anyone who has given birth with North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust.
We offer telephone appointments or face-to-face at the University Hospital of Hartlepool.

Really great to have the opportunity to discuss and hear about my birth. Very helpful and it’s made me feel more prepared for me next delivery.
