Wessex Voices Maternity Matters 2017



This report ‘Maternity Matters – discovering experiences of maternity services: Southampton, Hampshire, Isle of Wight and Portsmouth’ was produced by Wessex Voices, who were commissioned to carry out engagement with women and their birthing partners.

Healthwatch Hampshire Engagement Officers and volunteers attended nine Child Health Clinics run by Health Visiting Teams across the county, as this was seen as the most likely place to engage parents of babies under 1 year old. There was also an online survey.

In total 1,215 responses from mothers and 63 responses from birth partners were recorded. The results are shown in this report and will be used to inform future decisions about maternity services.
