Updates on what we're doing and how your feedback is making a difference
We held our most recent meeting in March at the Seagulls Children’s Centre and yet again we had a good attendance and a new mum attending, we also had feedback from other mums who weren’t able to attend which was really helpful.
We welcomed the James Paget’s new Women’s Experience Midwife, Abby to her first meeting. Abby is making changes already to improve women’s experience. She has been sharing positive feedback with teams received from debriefings as well as looking at what can be improved.
We discussed our current focus topic – looking at the postnatal care of mums and babies after leaving hospital.
We have now opened a survey to get your feedback about this topic – if you would like to complete the survey it can be found here. We will be keeping this survey open for the next month or so, and will be discussing the results and looking to see if any changes can be made at our next meeting.
We also discussed the new Local Maternity System (LMS), we are hoping to hold a series of engagement events in the next 12 months. We will provide more details about this when we have it.
As always, we really appreciate your general feedback about your experiences of maternity care, it would be great if you could fill out our maternity care survey
We have taken feedback on community midwives from our maternity care survey and used it to create two posters which you can see below. This feedback has been shared with our midwives and is a great way to thank them for the work they do with expectant and new mums!
Our next meeting will be held on Monday 18th June at 12pm, at Kirkley Children’s Centre in Lowestoft. Babies and toddlers are welcome and we look forward to seeing you there!
