Survey on maternity care experiences launched

18th March 2021

The Health and Social Security Scrutiny Panel has launched a survey asking mothers who have given birth in the last five years for their recent experiences of maternity care. With a focus on antenatal care, labour, birth, postnatal care, feeding and mental health, responses will aid the Panel in understanding and assessing current maternity services for its ongoing review. All responses received will remain anonymous and the survey will remain open until 1 April 2020. 

Deputy Mary Le Hegarat, Chair of the Health and Social Security Panel, said “We are delighted with the uptake of response to the review so far and are now particularly keen to hear from all mums who have given birth in the last five years. Their views will prove crucial in helping the Panel review current maternity services and suggest improvements going forward. We want to stress that the emphasis of the survey isn’t to view current services in a negative light, rather seek improvements which could have a truly positive impact on mothers who use these services in the future.” 

Whilst the survey is aimed at new mothers, the Panel value the views of fathers, partners, and families and encourage these individuals to share their experiences of maternity services by writing to the Panel’s Officer Sammy at 

Should the public have any queries about the survey, the Panel urges them to get in touch by writing to or messaging the States Assembly on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
