NHS England has put together a survey to help better understand the information that women want when making a decision about their maternity care.

They would like information from women who are pregnant or have had a child in the last two years. This will help to improve maternity information and care for women.

NHS England wants to find out what information is important to women, before deciding where to go for care before, during and after birth. They want to know when women want this information, and what format(s) would be most useful to them. This will be an excellent tool to inform how they shape information for women going forward to support them in making choices.

The survey should take about 15 minutes to complete.

They would really appreciate help from health visitors in cascading this survey to women – in particular, if you have links  with harder to reach groups, then that would be really appreciated.

Survey closes 31 March 2017.

Many thanks for your contributions to shaping this survey.
