Maternity Voices Partnerships are a way for mothers, fathers and partners to share their experience, knowledge and skills to build improvements to maternity services.
Anyone who has experience of using maternity services before, during and after pregnancy is invited to share their personal knowledge with the group. Maternity services include antenatal appointments, hospital care and care you receive after you have your baby.
The MVP in Mid and South Essex is a place where everyone involved in maternity care, both professionals and anyone using those services, can work together to help to work on putting women at the centre of care. This approach will offer women information, choice and care based on evidence and real experience.
Meetings for the MVP are held across the Mid and South Essex region. The date and location for the next meeting should be finalised in the coming weeks.
If you have any questions about the MVP or would like further information about joining, please contact the Maternity Voices Partnership Chair, Lynsey K McCarthy-Calvert:
