About Us

Maternity and Neonatal Voice Partnerships (MNVPs) are parent-led, independent advisory groups of volunteer service user representatives and professionals who help improve local maternity and neonatal care.

Our service user representatives include people who have recently used local maternity and neonatal services, those with an interest in improving maternity and neonatal care and others who work with pregnant and new parents, for example providing antenatal classes and other support.

The key role of service user representatives is to listen to the views and experiences of women, their partners and families and ensure their feedback is heard and listened to.


Our Vision

For maternity and neonatal services in Humber and North Yorkshire to be kind as well as safe for all, by supporting and enabling our teams to consistently provide personalised, supportive and informed care, with empathy, understanding and compassion.

The professional members include:

  • Commissioners

  • Local authority staff working on public health

  • Those providing maternity care including midwives, obstetricians and health visitors.


We are also supported by:

  • Local Healthwatch groups

  • Voluntary and charity groups

  • Healthcare professionals providing specialist services

  • GPs
