The consultation closes on 6 April 2019.
The future of midwifery - deadline Thursday 9 May
The Nursing & Midwifery Council is shaping the standards for what midwives need to know and be able to do in order to register with them and practise as a midwife in the UK. They would like to hear whether you think their new draft standards capture what a midwife should know and be able to do as well as the support they should be able to provide.
Your views will help shape the new standards and enable midwives to give better and safer care to all women, their babies, partners and families.
The consultation closes 9 May 2019.
Having a baby and the effect on your mental health
Having a baby is one of the biggest life choices you can make. This can affect both the person who is giving birth and their partner's mental health. Healthwatch England want to know more about people's experiences of mental health support when planning to get pregnant, during pregnancy, at the birth of their child and afterwards.
This can be a challenging topic to talk about, so please be assured all responses will be completely anonymous and if there are any questions you don’t want to answer, then don’t feel like you have to.
If you have any questions about this survey, please contact Healthwatch England by sending an email.
