Maternity Services Report

Healthwatch Derbyshire aims to talk to a wide range of people about their experiences of using health and social care services. As a result, we received a number of comments about maternity services through our general engagement activity.

Due to some themes emerging in the information we received through this activity, we decided to approach people who used maternity services, with regards to all three stages, i.e. antenatal, intrapartum (birth) and postnatal care in a more targeted way to find out a little more about the issues that were starting to emerge. This took place between September – November 2016.

This report is based on 229 experiences of maternity services collated between September and November 2016.  The purpose of this summary paper is to highlight the themes and trends that emerged during the engagement activity, with an example of the comments.
