A movement for change

Kingston Maternity Voices Partnership (MVP) is an independent advisory body, a group made up of parents, volunteers from community groups (e.g. NCT), senior midwives, obstetricians, GPs, health visitors, infant feeding specialists, doulas, etc., who work together as a critical friend to the Maternity Team in order to improve maternity services.

Get Involved

People who are interested in improving maternity care, and the experience women have throughout their maternity journey, are welcome to join us. 

Regular meetings
Join a regular structured meeting at Kingston Hospital to help shape decisions and make sure parents’ voices are being heard. 

Project groups
Action orientated people who are willing to both lead, or work as part of, a team to gather feedback from parents and communicate it into the hospital, and follow-up and report on the action taken.

Specific skills
Do you have a flare for, or experience in, an area that could help with specifics in a project? E.g. A designer, and analyst, a writer, researcher, a community leader etc.

Voices in the community initiative
We go out into the community (e.g. breastfeeding support groups, children’s centre play groups) seeking feedback on the experience of pregnancy, birth and postnatal care at Kingston hospital, and feeding this back in a summarised report.

Walking the Patch
We speak to new parents on the postnatal ward in order to hear their experience and implement quick actions where needed.

If you are interested in being involved please get in touch by contacting us via email: or visit our website.
