Please note that we have now completed our move to new offices and have a new phone number. Please see below for details.
Healthwatch Northamptonshire has created a survey to ask new mums their views on the help and support they received during their pregnancy, labour and in the postnatal period. The survey has been designed to understand what services new mums felt they had available and to tell us the about their overall experience. The survey aims to capture the views on services that new mums would have liked or needed. A focus group was held with new mums, and their contribution helped us to understand if we were asking the right questions in the questionnaire.
