The Reading, Wokingham & West Berks Maternity Forum is a working group of parents, midwives, doctors and NHS manager meeting to talk about local maternity services, and how they might be improved.

They collect feedback on services from parents with a baby of up to about 12 months old – so that the feedback is recent, and relevant to current care.

Reading Maternity Voices (MSLC) is a team of service users, service user representatives, midwives, doctors and commissioners. We work together to review and contribute to the development of local maternity services. We’re an independent body, reporting to the local Federation of GP Commissioning Groups that commissions maternity services.

The volunteer service user reps, meet monthly for either a formal meeting with the whole committee, a review and planning session or a feedback session in the community. You can also find the user reps out in the community collecting feedback from women and their partners about their experiences of using local maternity services. Feedback can also be given via an online survey, when we walk the patch on our postnatal wards and through the use of focus groups.

When we collect feedback we are interested in all of a woman’s maternity care – from the booking in appointment with a community midwife to the handover to the health visiting team at around day 10 after birth. We ask for women to tell us the following:
• What was good about your experience of maternity care?
• What, if anything, wasn’t good?
• What ideas do you have for improvements?
