Why get involved?
"I have attended several MVP meetings now as a service user and have been struck by how incredibly welcome I have felt each time. Each meeting starts with a cup of tea and a chat and a chance to meet others in the room which helps to break the ice and ease you into the things quite nicely!
The meetings involve discussions about a number of timely, meaningful and interesting topics relating to a wide range of maternity related issues in the local area and on the national agenda and offers you the chance to contribute to the discussions and share your views if you would like to; or if you simply want to listen and absorb what is being said this is okay too! There is the opportunity to discuss what is relevant to you and also to shape the focus of things to come with the intention of improving local maternity services for local parents to be and their families.
As a service user I feel the focus of the meeting is always brought back to us and our experiences and that our voice is considered and heard at every turn. All in all I have left each meeting feeling empowered, informed and included and as such would thoroughly recommend coming to maternity voices to any service users, friends and family members."
