Posted on June 30, 2016 by AireAdmin No Comments

Midwives from Airedale Hospital are inviting people to join them for a special event to help redesign the midwifery service at the hospital.

The Community Midwifery team is asking parents-to-be or anyone who has used midwifery services either at the hospital or out in the community to come along to a special event in Keighley Civic Centre on 8 July.  The event, which is taking place from 10am to 3pm, will look at people’s experiences and expectations of a midwifery service and use them to make changes to and build upon the existing service.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for local people to get involved in shaping their midwifery service”, explains Clare Luby, Community Midwife Manager.  “Whether you’ve had a baby at Airedale in the past few years, are planning to give birth here or have experience of other midwifery services, we’d love to hear from you.  Bringing a child into the world is such a special and exciting time, and we want to make sure mums-to-be get the best service possible from our midwives, both in the community in the run up to the birth and on Airedale Hospital’s labour ward. By sharing your experiences, explaining what you think works well and what can be improved, we can create a gold-standard service for our community.”

Lunch and refreshments will be provided at the event. To book, please contact Clare on 01535 292213.
