In January 2018, Wessex Voices published their Maternity Matters report, which included the views of more than 1200 women and their birthing partners about their experience of the maternity system across Southampton, Hampshire, Isle of Wight and Portsmouth.
We worked with local maternity and Health Visiting services to gather feedback to help commissioners and maternity service providers ensure that women have an informed and empowered choice through their pregnancy and birth.
A year on the Southampton, Hampshire, Isle of Wight and Portsmouth Local Maternity System have produced a report highlighting many of the actions they have taken to respond to the nine
key areas for improvement that Maternity Matters recommended.
Wessex Voices welcomes the report that shows many areas of progress across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. If you have any feedback or would like more information about this please get in touch at Sue.Newell@helpandcare.org.uk.
