Maternity Voice Partnership (MVP)

Maternity Voice Partnership (MVP) 
Parent and family representatives are working in partnership with midwives, doctors and other health professionals to help improve future maternity care to women, partners, families and babies. Coast & Country Maternity Voices Partnership (MVP) covers Scarborough, Filey, Whitby and Ryedale. 

Volunteers Wanted to Support the Programme  
For the programme to work successfully we would like to recruit some volunteers to gather information from other families.

This could be done in lots of different ways – through asking for feedback at meetings/groups you already attend, through looking at the results of the ongoing questionnaire, or through visiting clinical areas and feeding what you have found back into the main meetings.

We are aiming to collect feedback from all sorts of people who represent the wide variety of families across Scarborough, Filey, Whitby and Ryedale.

This will be an exciting time to raise awareness around the importance of the maternity services, to make sure that seldom heard voices are heard, and to contribute to future developments in maternity services.

If you would like to feed back, find out more about what is being discussed or would like to volunteer to help:

Please contact Ria Machin and SJ Barker on


Mumbler Reviews

From time to time, I am asked to review classes, days out and other wierd and wonderful things!

This comprises of attending, taking photos, enjoying whatever it is and then writing a short review afterwards for the website which is then shared on social media.

I am hoping to get a few volunteers together that may like to do a few reviews for me? Your review will be published on the website. There will be no payment for your time but you will get whatever you are reviewing for free.

If you think this is something that you may like to get involved in, please do contact me HERE telling me how old your children are, where you live, any specific interests and what you use on Mumbler. Do send any questions you may have.

It is quite a good way to get back into work, keep your hand in during maternity leave or just experience some really cool things that you may not normally do.
