We are connecting with each other to share our experiences, tackling isolation and perinatal mental wellbeing through story-telling and positive interaction.
We are also connecting the experiences to those tasked with transforming maternity services for all women.
The user experience of Black and Brown women is often missing from the maternity transformation conversation. Our mission is to take these experiences as a collective voice and ensure they are heard by the Commissioners, Managers, Trust Boards, decision-makers and those tasked with finding solutions to the challenges around making maternity services safe and effective for all women.
