We are currently working together to co-produce the RCM maternity voices network. This will provide an opportunity to improve the experiences and outcomes for all involved in maternity services by bringing together services users, midwives, maternity support workers and student midwives to support and influence the RCM in all areas of its work, to further align the needs of our members and those of the women and families they work with.
"While we have lots of ideas for how to get started, we don't want to dictate how we will do this. I'm keen that we co-produce the network. This means involving everybody in designing how its going to loo, feel and work. I'll be speaking to lots of people over the next few months and welcome any ideas or thoughts about how we can make this happen"
Emily Ahmed, Service User Chair, RCM Maternity Voices Network
