Birmingham and Solihull are changing the way maternity services are provided, and have created a partnership of local providers to make it easier to access maternity services – Birmingham and Solihull United Maternity and Newborn Partnership (Bump). 

By completing this survey you will help us to get a better understanding of non-NHS services you might have accessed during your pregnancy, birth and post-pregnancy. Your responses will feed in to the project development, as we look at offering more choice for women and families in Birmingham and Solihull.

 Thanks in advance for taking the time to complete this survey.

* 1. Did you access any non-NHS services during your pregnancy, birth or shortly after?

* 2. If Yes, what was the most beneficial service you accessed?
