Your Experience

Colchester, Ipswich and West Suffolk Maternity Voices have partnered to create a survey to hear from dads and partners about their experience of maternity care, during labour and postnatally. Please skip any questions that are not relevant i.e if your baby has not been born yet there is no need to complete questions about the postnatal period. 

Maternity Voices Partnerships are totally independent of the NHS and have been created to ensure that your voice is heard. When you complete this survey you are contributing to positive changes in the service provision for families in your area.

All feedback you share will remain anoynomous, and is shared with ESNEFT, WSFT, WSCCG, Public Health SCC and Healthwatch Suffolk to help improve services across the area.
