Maternity Voices is the voice for local people who have used maternity services in mid Essex - before, during and after pregnancy and for anyone else who is interested in influencing what improvements should be made in the future. Both Mums, Dads and babies are most welcome to join the committee.
Maternity services include antenatal appointments, hospital care and the care you receive at home after you have had your baby.
We hold regular public meetings which involve parents, Mid Essex CCG staff, midwives and other professionals - so you can be certain your voice will contribute to the planning of maternity services. We also welcome feedback via email. We have a Facebook page which we want to develop into a useful forum for young parents: a place where they can hear the latest news and share their own views and stories.
