Maternity and Neonatal Voices Partnership
Our Maternity and Neonatal Voices Partnership is a team of local parents and health professionals. We believe that every pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experience should be safe, supportive, and empowering.
We work together to improve our services and deliver equitable care, with a focus on people who are at disproportionate risk.
By joining our partnership, you'll have the opportunity to share your experiences, insights, and ideas with us. You will be part of a collaborative effort to identify and address challenges, celebrate successes, and drive improvements in maternity and neonatal services.
We meet every 6 weeks during the day. These sessions are usually online but we let members know if there's an opportunity to meet in person.
If you are a member, we let you know the date and time of the next meeting in advance.
Members of our partnership include:
- midwives, nurses, health visitors, doctors and managers
- women, birthing people and families from a diverse range of backgrounds
- members of the wider community such as birth workers and charities
Members work together as equals. We recognise that each person brings a different set of experiences, skills and unique perspectives that contribute to the strength of the partnership.
How to join our partnership
You can apply to become a member if you've had maternity care at St Thomas' Hospital, or your baby has had care in our neonatal unit at Evelina London. You can be at any stage in your pregnancy, or post-birth.
We are interested in recruiting members from all backgrounds and experiences.
