Kingston maternity voices (MSLC)
Want to improve maternity experiences for families in Kingston?
Join us in a movement for change!
We are looking for women and men volunteers who are inspired to shape maternity care, to come and work as part of a group made up of parents, volunteers from community groups (e.g. NCT), senior midwives, an obstetrician, GP, Health visitor, infant feeding specialists etc, to work together as a critical friend to the Maternity team in order to improve services.
We have a number of different ways you can get involved and make a difference.
- Quarterly meetings:
Join a meeting at Kingston hospital for a lunch time session 4 times a year, asking questions, helping to shape decisions, and trying to make sure parents' voices are being heard.
- Project groups:
Action orientated people who are willing to work on feedback channels from parents into the hospital and, report on the action taken.
- Specific skills:
Do you have a flare for, or experience in, an area that could help with specifics in a project like this? A designer, analyst, writer, researcher, a community leader etc?
- Voices in the community initiative:
We are going out into the community (e.g. breastfeeding support groups, children's centre play groups) seeking feedback on the experience of pregnancy, birth and postnatal care with Kingston hospital, and feeding this back in a summarised report.
If the above sounds like you, and you can commit 8-10 hours a year for a minimum of 2 years, then please get in touch via our Facebook page (Search for Kingston Maternity Voices - MSLC), or via Twitter @KingstonMSLC.
