Pregnancy Doncaster

Doulas and Independent Midwives

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
