In the realm of motherhood and neonatal care, the journey can be as daunting as it is beautiful. Recognising this, the Maternity Neonatal Voices Partnership (MNVP) has carved out a unique niche dedicated to amplifying the voices that often go unheard – those of parents and their newborns. Our mission is simple yet profound: to collaborate with volunteers, healthcare professionals, and National Health Service (NHS) England to create supportive networks that nurture the well-being of families from pregnancy through to the first 5 years of your child’s life.

Pioneering Support for Families: How MNVP Makes a Difference

MNVP is more than an organisation; it’s a beacon of hope and support for parents navigating the complexities of maternity and neonatal care.

Strengthening Community Ties with VCSC Partnerships

We believe in the power of community. By joining forces with Voluntary, Community, and Social Enterprise (VCSC) groups, we’re able to provide parents with a wealth of resources and support systems designed to meet their diverse needs. Our partnerships are built on trust and a shared commitment to enhancing family health outcomes.

Advocating for Excellence in Healthcare Provision

Advocacy plays a pivotal role in our efforts. We actively champion improvements in maternity and neonatal services by representing the interests of children aged 0-5 years and their families. Our team works tirelessly to ensure that their voices are not just heard but acted upon.

Fostering Volunteer Engagement and Education

Volunteers are the heartbeat of MNVP. We empower them with training and tools so they can offer peer-to-peer support, which has proven invaluable for many parents. Our focus on education helps volunteers stay abreast of the latest healthcare guidelines, ensuring that every family receives up-to-date advice and care.

Many local families feel supported

By weaving together healthcare professionals’ expertise with families’ lived experiences, MNVP has become a lynchpin in the fabric of maternal and neonatal care. Parents emerge more knowledgeable, empowered, and supported, while babies have the advantage of a healthier start in life.

The results speak volumes: a community where each voice is acknowledged, every concern is addressed, and the bonds between parents, healthcare professionals, and volunteers grow stronger. This partnership is about laying a foundation of support and care that will carry families forward during challenging and happy moments.
