Step this way to help shape the future of maternity services in England(1 Post)
As some of you will know, Mumsnet is on the panel of the National Maternity Review, which is an NHS England initiative set up in the wake of the report into the deaths of mothers and babies at the Morecambe Bay hospitals trust.
The remit of the review is to 'assess current maternity care provision and consider how services should be developed to meet the changing needs of women and babies'.
So we'd be really grateful if you could give us your feedback on the following two very broad themes:
Which choices do you wish to be able to make about the maternity care you receive?
What are the key barriers preventing women from making the choices that they wish to?
Thanks - any and all thoughts welcome. (And just FYI, this won't be your only opportunity to feed in, and more detailed feedback systems are going to be launched soon - we'll flag these up as they happen.)
Over the next few months, the NHS Maternity Review will be hosting a number
of events around the country as part of its national tour to hear how
women, their families and advocates, provider organisations and the
professional bodies involved in maternity care feel about the current
services. Please see below for our itinerary as it currently stands. We
would be very grateful if you could share this widely within your networks,
and look forward to seeing many of you there.

their work. These events are an opportunity to share your experiences,
contribute to the work of the Review, and have your voice heard.
The feedback from these events will contribute directly to the work of the
Review and we are keen to hear from women, their families, those who work
in maternity services and other professional bodies. All are welcome to
