Contacting a Professional Midwifery Advocate (PMA)
If you have any questions after you give birth, you can speak to your midwife. We also have a team of Professional Midwifery Advocates (PMAs) who will be happy to help.
Who are PMAs?
Professional Midwifery Advocates are experienced midwives who have undertaken additional training to enable to support, develop and guide midwives by consistently improving the quality of care we provide for women and their families.
We work with the Maternity Voices Partnership (MVP) to ensure women’s experiences of maternity services are listened to.
We are a small team and are employed by Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
How can PMAs help you?
By listening and providing advice and guidance on any concerns you may have about your care
By supporting the midwife in the care she gives you and enabling good communication between you and your midwife
By talking to your midwife/obstetrician to help resolve any issues regarding your care in an unbiased and impartial manner
By offering a birth reflection service to reflect on a recent experience with us. Also, if you are pregnant or planning a pregnancy and feel you have had a previous difficult birth experience with us, a PMA can meet with you to go through your clinical notes and discuss your experience with you. You may wish to discuss this with your midwife or contact us directly
Reflection clinics are held weekly and can be arranged by contacting us on the details below.
