Woman across Greater Glasgow and Clyde who have recently given birth are being asked to contribute to a national maternity survey which will help shape the future of maternity care.
Over the next week mums who gave birth between January and February will be sent a questionnaire about their recent experience of maternity care.
The results will help healthcare professionals understand what we are doing right and where there needs to be improvement.
Taking part is voluntary, all responses will be completely confidential and none of the healthcare professionals involved in the women’s care will know anything about their responses.
Evelyn Frame, Chief Midwife, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, said: “This survey gives us the opportunity to get feedback from women who have recently been under the care of maternity services.
“It would really helpful if every woman who gets a questionnaire takes the time to complete it as their responses can really help us focus on what we are doing right and what we need to improve our service.
“The survey has questions on antenatal care, the birth experience and care at home after the birth, and women who have recently experienced maternity services are best placed to provide us with the information we need to ensure women in the future are getting a first class service.”
Questionnaires will be dropping through letterboxes over the next week with reminders in two weeks time.
