What is a Maternity Voices Partnership?

A Maternity Voices Partnership (MVP) is a NHS working group: a team of women and their families, commissioners and providers (midwives and doctors) working together to review and contribute to the development of local maternity care.

It is multidisciplinary in nature and works in partnership with all its members. As well as monitoring services, it should be involved in the co-production of maternity services, in line with the Better Births resource pack.  It should be chaired by a current service user or (non-clinician) service user advocate.

We are currently reviewing all our resources including these FAQs and answers and will be publishing updates over the next few months. See the Toolkit Review page for more information.
