Mother’s Voices Community Feedback events – all welcome – this is an opportunity for you to share in a safe environment how birth was for you.  The user reps will welcome you with tea and cake and listen to your story.  We are aiming to provide space for you to share your experience as well as give us:

  • what was positive about your maternity experience?
  • what, if anything was not positive?
  • what ideas do you have for how local maternity services can be improved?
