Transforming maternity care and support

We’re working closely with the Gloucestershire Maternity Voices Partnership (MVP) to ensure the voices of women and their families are heard and help shape the future of maternity care and services.

Together, we are striving to provide support to all local women, families and communities that’s right for them and tailored to meet their needs.

This video highlights how we are leading the way in expanding maternal mental health services for women who are experiencing mental health difficulties as a result of birth trauma or loss.

It also showcases other projects such as development of ‘Continuity of Carer’ teams. 3 teams are already in place and ensure women are cared for by very small teams of midwives to improve outcomes for them and their babies.

The current teams focus on women who have some of the greatest needs in maternity services.
