Baby Steps

Posted on 26 Apr 2018

Cover of reportHealthwatch Dorset spoke to over 100 local women and their families about local maternity services, to find out what it's really like when you have a baby in Dorset. We organised two "Mini Moments" events for parents and children, ran a Facebook survey and visited local community groups and children's centres to get people's feedback. 

Our findings show the need for better communication, continuity of care and the need to allow new parents the support to make their own choices. We believe this is even more important when talking about people who may have stronger preferences due to disability, religion, or culture.
