Welcome

You feedback, we listen

Oxfordshire Maternity Voices Partnership is a team of users, parents, parents to be and service representatives, midwives, doctors and commissioners.

Who we are

We work together to review and contribute to the development of local maternity services. We’re an independent body and are involved with local organisations and groups associated with maternity services in the county. You can find our dedicated committee and user reps out and about in the community collecting feedback from families about their experiences of using local maternity services.

What we do

Stages

We are interested in all aspects of maternity care – from your booking in appointment with a community midwife to your handover to the health visiting team after the birth of your baby, and everything in between.

Your thoughts

You can access our online survey and lots of resources for expectant parents, new parents and parents who have experienced a loss, as well as information about what we do, via our social media channels.

Questions

We want to know…
How was your experience?
What, if anything, wasn’t good?
What ideas do you have for improvements? 

What People Say

The staff remained calm and kept us informed of what was happening the whole way through. As much of my birth plan was respected as possible.

October 2019

The midwives at the Spires were great, really attentive and gave personal care. The water bath was brilliant and I was given my own room after the birth.

Your journey

Pregnancy
Birth
Post-natal

We use feedback to identify improvements that can be made for pregnant people, from perinatal mental health support to ensuring continuation of care.

Every family’s experience is different, and we use our feedback to improve and enhance all aspects to help people feel listened to and valued in their birth choices.

Being a new parent can be daunting, and having a good support structure is essential. We are here to help support families in this critical and private time.
