In December 2018, we were proud to launch our new #MindNBody Whose Shoes? resources – the third in our series of major #MatExp projects to improve maternity care and help people to focus on a holistic ‘Mind N Body’ approach to maternity experience.
The whole thing is crowdsourced, with scenarios and poems contributed about a very large wide range of issues, and from all perspectives.
At the last minute, we got the idea to crowdsource videos from some of the people who’d been involved, as a #MindNBodyAdvent series. Take a look at the hashtag on Twitter . It was very organic and came together better than I dared hope , with lots of fantastic people volunteering to join in .
Here we have collected them into a single video and I hope they give you a feel of the depth and variety of the project.
The new resources are currently going out to over 50 NHS trusts and we hope will support conversations to improve experiences of women and families everywhere .
A Happy New Year to all – hoping 2019 will be another year of positive, action-focused #MatExp change and looking forward to working with everyone to get the most out of the brand new material.
