As part of this patient representation work we were able to run a short initial analysis on some of the data from the survey undertaken by the Oswestry Maternity Group. We thought that a useful place to start would be the data around choice of birthing location and experiences of the postnatal care system.
- 75.3% of mothers at the time of booking chose to have their birth in a Midwife Led Unit
- 69.8% of mothers ultimately gave birth in the Consultant Led Unit in Telford
- 15% of mothers were not offered information about the different units
- 96% of mothers feel that in-patient post natal care is very important or important
