The Maternity Voices Partnership (MVP) is a way for mothers, fathers and partners to share their experiences, knowledge and skills to build improvements to maternity services.
Anyone who has had 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 put women at the centre of care. This approach will offer women information, choice and care based on evidence and real experience.
Meetings are held across the mid and south Essex area. The next meeting will be held on 8 November at 7pm, Wren house, Hedgerows Business Park, Colchester Road, Chelmsford, CM2 5PF.
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:
