Help shape and improve your local maternity services by joining our maternity voices.

Who are Colchester and Tendring Maternity Voices?

Maternity Voices aims to ensure that the views of local parents are considered in respect of all aspects of maternity services.

Maternity Voices members can include parents-to-be, mums, dads, grandparents, NHS midwives and doctors from local services and members of local community groups that provide services and support to expectant mothers and new parents and their babies.

Maternity Voices is one of the main ways that our healthcare professionals get to hear the real views and experiences of parents using our maternity services.

Why should I get involved?

The opinions and real experiences of our parent members are essential to help shape and improve the local maternity services. As a member of Maternity Voices you can really get involved. Your views are invaluable to give maternity professionals a service user's perspective. In addition, a very important part of our work is that we find out what parents from all walks of life need to make their experience of our maternity services a good one.

Maternity Voices meetings are held in local children's centers every three months and are informal and friendly, so most parent members find it easy to express their opinions. We discuss a large variety of matters ranging from practical details to policy issues.

All are welcome, whether you wish to attend on a regular basis, or just once to give us your feedback.

How can I contribute?

Please contact 01206 918702 for details of the next meeting.
