Hello

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.

See our thread about it here asking for your thoughts: www.mumsnet.com/Talk/site_stuff/2422177-Step-this-way-to-help-shape-the-future-of-maternity-services-in-England

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 Mumsnet would love to have 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?

In addition, 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. We also want to know what you would like the Review Panel to bear in mind as our members go about their work. These events are an opportunity to share your experiences, contribute to the work of the Review, and have your voice heard.

There are two events locally:

Tuesday 25th August, 10am-7pm, Acorn Children’s Centre, 110 Roman Road, Taunton, TA1 2BL
Wednesday 26th August, 9am-7pm, venue tbc, Plymouth

Thanks - any and all thoughts welcome.
