Doncaster Maternity Voices Partnership (MVP) is a friendly group of parents, their families and health care professionals, who work together to shape, develop and improve Maternity Services in Doncaster. It is a way for mothers, fathers and partners to share their experiences, knowledge and skills to build developments to local maternity services.
At the start of 2020, you would have found our dedicated team of health care professionals (commissioners and midwives) out and about in the community collecting feedback from families about their experiences of using the local maternity services. Since restrictions and social distancing measures came into place in early March, this has been moved onto a digital platform. You can now access our MVP and information about what we do via the facebook page as well as online surveys and some fantastic groups for parents shared on the Doncaster Mumbler website.
You can find us on Facebook by searching for ‘Doncaster and Bassetlaw Maternity Voices’ or clicking here

A perfect way to remember your bump forever with a maternity portrait session
Many of my clients tell me how much they regret not having any professional photos of them taken whilst they were pregnant … the biggest reason they gave for not having any done, was their worries about how they felt they looked at the time. Let’s face it: during pregnancy, most of us don’t feel at our most beautiful.
But that’s where I can help!
If you look at my website, you may think I use models….NOPE! Every woman on there is just like you and me… a real woman…and each one of them came to me feeling a little nervous. Maybe like me, they had stretch-marks or maybe like me too, they felt they had become ‘bigger’ than before pregnancy.
As a Gold Award Winning Maternity Specialist, I will use my expertise to style, pose and light you in order to flatter your figure and make you look and feel BEAUTIFUL. Being pregnant is hard work, you DESERVE this chance to have FUN and create these special memories to look back on when you too say “I really miss my bump”
‘would highly recommend Petite Portraits, i was very nervous about going but i was so warmly welcomed and reassured. What i loved most is that she worked the shots around the looks i was wanting and the results are amazing! enjoyed every minute’ B.M
The early days and weeks with a new baby can be exciting, but they can also be challenging and confusing. There is a lot of support available locally from your health visitor and community midwife.

Whether trying for a baby, embarking on IVF, recovering from a recent miscarriage or have a newborn, entering the stage of ‘motherhood’ can be both beautiful and mentally testing. The transition into the role of ‘mother’ can be stressful and there may be times when you just want to give up.
Come along, hang out, grab a drink and we can chat about The Game of Thrones, Digestives v Hobnobs or what on earth the Teletubbies are on about – and when you want to talk about your mental health, you know you’re talking to someone who’ll listen and say those magic words ‘I’ve been there’.
Groups run in Rossington and Bentley (please check the dates on our facebook page as they run every couple of weeks – not every week). We can now offer parents 1:1 support at Doncaster Family Hubs, facilitated by Light staff and volunteers. Call us on 0114 438 8962 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
